KACW Aid Distribution 2017


We will be distributing warm winter clothing to orphans and vulnerable children in Moldova.  The past few years have seen some fantastic teams and some unforgetable experiences.  We will be located in rural schools; the children from the surrounding areas come to recieve their warm coats, hats, scarves, gloves and blankets.  This trip is hard work, but also incredibly rewarding.

The cost of trips is £450 + the cost of flights.  The flights are normally between £250-£300, but we charge these separately so that we can keep the cost down for our team members.  This means overall we do not expect the trip to cost any more than £700.  Obviously prices can change over the course of a year, but we would make costs very clear to your before you made a final decision.

If you are interested in becoming one of our KACW Distribution Team Members in 2017, please email us at globalexpeditions@operation-orphan.org.  We would love to hear from you.

Sierra Leone Trip April 2018


This will be another rewarding trip to visit our children in Sierra Leone.  The Heaven Homes project includes a school for the kids in the community and homes for 60 children orphaned by the Ebola outbreak in 2014.  The focus of the trip will be spending time with these children both in the school and in their homes.  At school there will be plenty of opportunity to teach lessons and bring new ideas and resources to the teachers.  When in the homes, the children just love to hang out. This is not a trip for the faint hearted, but for those who really want to experience rural Africa.

For more information download the info sheet and if you decide that this trip is for you please complete the application form under apply.  If you have any questions about the trip please contact us at globalexpeditions@operation-orphan.org.

Hope Alive Tour 2018


A running challenge with a difference.  Join the team and run an epic 600 mile journey.  The first section, in England, is run in relay over 4 days and 3 nights with the other 12 runners.  Then the whole team will fly to Sierra Leone in West Africa to run the final 26 miles.  The reward at the end is meeting the children at the Heaven Homes project, and spending couple of days in their world.  This challenge is no easy ride, especially running a marathon in 30°C heat. However, all the runners this year said they loved the experience.

More details and sign up in the downloadable document under apply.
