Holy Family Children's Center

The Holy Family Children's Center in Idah, Nigeria is a village for orphaned children, widows and unwed mothers. They receive security, sustenance, education and job training. The village is the first of its kind in Idah, a necessity since 7 out of 10 people in the area are infected with the HIV virus and many children have lost both their parents to Aids.
