The Okaja Foundation
DIVINE PROVIDENCE HOME
Located in Ogoja, Nigeria, Divine Providence Home (DPH) was established in 2007 by Reverend Sister Mary Rita Abang of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus - a Catholic order under the Sisters of Charity. The home has taken in over 100 children since its founding and is known in the community as a safe haven for orphaned and vulnerable children.
Who They Serve
Divine Providence is currently home to over 50 children, ranging from infancy to 19 years of age. Each child’s story is different and the sisters have vowed never to turn away any in need of a home, welcoming each of with open, loving arms. They help each child overcome their experiences of loss and separation by making them aware of Christ’s love for them and instilling them with a strong Catholic faith.
