. Every person may not be born into a life where they feel loved and safe but every child deserves a family. Every person deserves love and the opportunity to live a joyful life.
This book will challenge you to examine your priorities. It will inspire you to believe you can make a difference in the life of others’. “Father to the Fatherless” is a very unique story that represents the negative realities facing millions of African children today.
If I changed the title of “Father to the Fatherless” I would change it too “Anything is Possible”. I find that this would be a good title for the book because throughout Charles’ life he always believed that anything was possible.
Mully Children’s Family Orphanage was founded and established by Charles Mulli and his wife Esther in 1989 Created in response to the desperate needs of street children, abandoned children and HIV/AIDS orphans in Kenya Their website is www.mullychildrensfamily.org www.mullychildrensfamily.org The foundation accepts donations from anywhere in the world
