Welcome to 147 Million Orphans

Giving Center

147 Million Orphans was created to provide the critical needs of children impacted by the orphan crisis and living in poverty. Founded in 2009 by Gwen Oatsvall & Suzanne Mayernick, 147 Million Orphans provides food, water, medicine and shelter in the name of Jesus Christ. The name of our company invokes discussion and brings awareness to the worldwide orphan crisis. Provision begins with the vulnerable child , but we also work to preserve families through sustainable income projects and community reconstruction. This support is critical to break the ongoing orphan crisis cycle. Learn more about our foundation.


You can add a new level of meaning and impact by giving the gift of hope. Every project available for giving through 147 Million Orphans provides a tangible gift to a child in need. These projects help save children’s lives and allow them to enjoy a future with better health. It provides strength for today and hope for tomorrow. We will provide you with a personalized card to commemorate your gift. This card can be sent to you or mailed directly to the person you are honoring with this gift. Listed below are monthly needs.

Uganda is a country of great need and spiritual hope.  After 5 years of loving and serving at the Family Spirit Children’s home, we are seeing real growth both physically and spiritually.  There have been small and large projects and more VBS days than we can count.  We are excited to see the changes and growth at Family Spirit and will continue to build sustainable Love+1 Projects that enable them to thrive.  Thank you Jesus for the opportunity to love and serve in your name and we invite you to join us.
