Open Arms International® UK
Lord David Steel
"Having lived in Kenya as a young man, and having travelled throughout Africa over many years, I have witnessed first-hand the institutions and organisations that work with orphans, vulnerable children, and communities.
Without a doubt, Open Arms Village near Eldoret, Kenya, is the premier residential child care facility I have seen anywhere in Africa. Their care for the children through a loving Kenyan mother and father in a family setting, their outstanding educational program, their thorough medical care, and even the quality construction of their buildings are all testaments to the fact that Open Arms International stands for excellence. Open Arms is pouring into the lives of children who I believe will one day take the mantle of leadership and effect positive transformation in their communities and country.
I can think of no finer organisation to financially support with confidence. You will assuredly be proud to consider yourself a partner with Open Arms International."
