Family Legacy has been called to work exclusively with the country of Zambia and specifically with the orphaned and vulnerable children who live there. Zambia is located in sub-Saharan Africa. It is a landlocked country slightly larger than the state of Texas.
There are 13 million people in Zambia and half of them are under the age of 16. This huge number is due to the high death rate from extreme poverty and HIV/AIDS.
The average life expectancy in Zambia is 38 years old and it has the 5th highest death rate in the world.
Of the 6.5 million children in Zambia, more than 1 million of them are orphaned.
Conditions for these children are nearly impossible. With extremely high unemployment rates, about 86% of the population of Zambia must live on less than $1 a day.
Every day we are working to bring hope to Zambian orphans living in these devastating conditions.
