Fountain of Zoe
The New Life Foundation cares for babies, some as young as 1 day old but no older than 3 years.
Some of these babies are abandoned by their mothers or the family are too poor to care for them.
Some of the children are adopted by NLF staff and families and some return to their parents when their situation improves.
God hears when children cry - do you?
The Fountain of Zoe is a place of hope and restoration for Tanzania's most vulnerable - babies that are abandoned due to poverty, disease or the death of their parents.
They are rescued, have their urgent medical issues met and cared for at the Fountain of Zoe site, where a home has been built especially for them. This home was finished in 2006 after a 3 year building project that was funded by generous donations from overseas supporters.
The purpose built orphanage is situated 21 km from Fountain of Hope Primary School. It has facilities for 40-50 children from newborn to 4 years of age when they transition to the Nursery School.
There have been many miracles performed at Fountain of Zoe as the babies and young children are prayed over for various diseases and physical issues (including AIDS). God has provided healing or a way whereby their sometimes considerable medical needs are met, so they are able to continue on with their lives - happy, healthy and loved.
Since 2006, we have seen our children grow, some from only a few days old, to become strong young men and women. This year, we will have 4 of our Fountain of Zoe children graduate Ordinary Level Education.
The above image shows Maria (right) and Melody, both 15 years old, flanking Glorious and Josephine Shoo. They were both raised at the Fountain of Zoe facility from when they were only a few weeks old. Maria and Melody will both be graduating Form 4 later this year. Maria has ambitions of practising law (with a touch of fashion-design on the side) while Melody aspires to become a pilot (with a rapping carreer on the side!).
We can almost imagine the scenes! "Ladies and gentlemen this is your captain speaking, please brace for impact as I drop my latest mixtape"
