Since 1992 the Lord called Pastor Solomon to open Home for the Needy, an orphanage for disabled children and orphans in Edo State, Nigeria. Between 1992 to 2012, N4H grew to about 490 children. Then the insurgency with Boko Haram broke out in 2012 in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States. It was like Jesus had prepared Pastor Solomon to be the light amid this cruel darkness.
The Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram looted several towns and villages, killing people and burning down their homes to the ground. The thousands of children, most who watched their parents been murdered, ran for refuge in the mountains, forests and neighboring country of Cameroon. With no shelter, some were eaten by animals, died of cholera and malnutrition. But some were rescued.
Jesus raised up Pastor Solomon and his little orphanage. Pastor Solomon setup a small group of people, to go looking for these children, and bring them to the orphanage. At the orphanage, Pastor Solomon, the church members and supporters like you and I, provide food, shelter, education and the Good News of Jesus Christ to children.
Today, the orphanage turned camp, is now 4,000 children strong, and growing.
WeRemnant is privileged to partner with H4N, to provide educational supplies.
Our gift of education prepared the children to be enlighten, educated adults who will not be easily turned towards extremism.
