Have you ever walked to school in harsh conditions without a pair of shoes? Did you know that there are hundreds of children in Cameroon who make that kind of journey every day?
You can make it possible for these children to have shoes for school, as well as all year round. Following training at the Lord’s BootCamp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. Your next flight crosses the Atlantic Ocean, Europe, the Mediterranean Sea and then over the Sahara Desert to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, arriving the next morning in Douala, Cameroon. From Douala, your team will bus 225 miles north to the Teen Missions in Cameroon base in Nsongwa, located near Bamenda.
After taking a few days to buy supplies and sort out the shoes, you will then head out to your first AIDS Orphans Rescue Unit (AORU).You will visit at least two AORU locations to wash children’s feet and help them put on a clean pair of socks and new shoes.
You will also assist the AORU facilitators with their daily medical treatments. The medical needs are great in these areas, as the children often have severe wounds, worms in their feet and knees, skin infections and common childhood illnesses. You will enjoy teaching phonics and Sunday School lessons, as well as playing soccer and other games with the orphans at the AORU. There will be ample opportunities to proclaim the Gospel through puppets, drama and singing. You will also have the opportunity to shop for jewelry, drums, spear heads, baskets and wood carvings. Housing is in tents; bathing and laundry are done using a bucket.
