• Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress…

    James 1:27

WOW cares for
Orphans and Widows

This ministry is called “Home Based Care” (HBC). We make thousands of HBC visits every year. These are made by our “army” of local church volunteers (mainly widows themselves) who lovingly care for the sick and the dying with great dignity.

Words from our Volunteers

“I love being a Home Based Care Volunteer because I believe it is one way of me living the testimony I am.  Each time I see a patient, my life is able to speak to them because I tell them how sick I was and now I am OK. That’s what drives me.” – DOROTHY

“Being grounded in the word of God is what makes me feel good and I have a passion to serve the sick.”– VIOLET

“I feel energized to give more of my time caring for the sick in my community.”– PATUMA

WOW partners with church-based champions in sub-Saharan Africa as they care for orphans and widows

WOW has always been about Home Based Care (HBC) for vulnerable orphans and widows. Our mandate, then and now, is to be “the hands and feet of Jesus” to dying and at-risk orphans and widows with a view to representing the Lord to them as “father to the fatherless and defender of widows” (Ps 68:5).

My call was, “Every church a Mother Teresa”.

Jim Cantelon, WOW Founder and President

Home Based Care for the vulnerable –
“the least of these”.
