Our goal is to support and encourage the work of our brothers and sisters in Christ in the country of Indonesia and to support their outreach ministries, giving special emphasis to their orphanages and in supporting orphans and other vulnerable children to enable them to attend school. We strive to demonstrate the love of Christ through works of service to these ministries as well as to other Christian missions and missionaries in the country of Indonesia as we have opportunity - to be God's "hands and feet” and His servants to His children in Indonesia.
Why Indonesia? Why should we help?
”Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” James 1:27
At least 21 million people in Indonesia live on less than $1 per day. 87 million children and adults struggle to get enough food and 1 in 3 children under the age of 5 suffer from stunting as a result of inadequate nutrition. 1 in 5 children who start primary school do not complete the 5th grade and access to education in more remote areas of the country is difficult or unavailable. 4.4 million children in Indonesia are orphans or have lost one parent. As a result of these statistics and many others, 4% of Indonesia’s children will not live to see their 5th birthday.
The Lion King Foundation focuses on the poorest and weakest people in Indonesia. The foundation runs an orphanage in Singaraja on the island of Bali where over 40 orphans and street children are given shelter by Marinka & Frankie Portier, directors, as well as Charles & Ayu, the houseparents.
His Hands for Indonesia was founded in 2011 when a partnership was formed between His Hands Support Ministries and The Lion King Foundation and Frankie & Marinka Portier. For a small monthly payment of $35 you can help an orphaned child with their living expenses or with their school fees and help change their life! 100% of your sponsorship payment goes to the child in need, to the orphanage and to the school, none of it goes toward the administrative expenses of this program here in the United States.
