“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you.”
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” If this is what God sees as acceptable – caring for some of the most vulnerable people in the world – then justice must begin with them. The HIV & AIDS and COVID-19 pandemics have left millions of orphans and widows in their wake. They are vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, poverty and disease. We believe God’s heart begins with them.
Righteousness and justice are at the core of WOW. It is our catalyst for caring for orphans and widows. Being rooted in these two key principles means we MUST respond to their immense need.
We cannot say we love God and love our neighbor without first loving the most vulnerable around us.
*The UN defines an orphan as a child who has lost one or both parents
