Orphan Sunday Award Winners

On Orphan Sunday, Christians around the globe celebrate the love of the God who “defends the cause of the fatherless” and calls us to do the same. Each year, hundreds of volunteer coordinators help churches, ministries, and individuals to make the Gospel and God’s true character visible as they explore and respond to His heart for vulnerable children in adoption, foster care, and global orphan ministry.

This year at the CAFO2018 Summit — with great joy and appreciation — CAFO honored many dedicated volunteers at the

CAFO 2018 Orphan Sunday Awards Luncheon

We are profoundly grateful to these servants for bringing the message of Orphan Sunday
and Stand Sunday to the church around the world.

Their tireless dedication is changing the lives of children all over the world.
Please join us in congratulating this year’s award winners.
