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.

I WANT TO GIVE TO HONDURAS
Honduras is a country of loving people and potential. We have been serving with the locals in Honduras for over 5 years. We have built homes, schools, fed children and communities, repaired buildings, brought medical care, and so much more. We are planted in Honduras and have a list of on-going Love+1 Projects. Thank you Jesus for the opportunity to love and serve in your name and we invite you to join us.
I WANT TO GIVE TO HAITI
Haiti is a country of great contradiction. There are the vast beautiful mountains and calming oceans, alongside of immense poverty and spiritual battles. The Love+1 Medical Clinic is a beacon of light and hope. We are thankful for the partnership with Megan at Respire and will continue to support and build up the Love+1 Medical Clinic. There is still great need in supporting this Love+1 Project. Thank you Jesus for the opportunity to love and serve in your name and we invite you to join us.
I WANT TO GIVE TO UGANDA
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.
I WANT TO GIVE TO UNITED STATES
United States is a country that has many hidden needs. School child hunger is real and needs our immediate attention. Many counties have “backpack” programs where children can grab a backpack full of food for their weekend nutritional needs. Help us fill those backpacks. Thank you Jesus for the opportunity to love and serve in your name and we invite you to join us.
