Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Psalm 82:3

This year National Orphan Sunday is November 11, 2018. But here at Friends of Children Everywhere we are setting aside the entire month of November as Defend The Cause Month. We are calling all partners and advocates to stand with us this fall in raising awareness.

Our goal is simple: provide churches, groups, and businesses with creative resources and simple next steps for everyone to Defend the Cause and make a life changing difference in the life of a child in Guatemala.
