Bethel Orphanage is temporarily closed.
If you have any questions please telephone the volunteer webmaster at the Website Administration Center in USA. Please call rather than emailing. If you email it’s unlikely that your email will receive a response due to time constraints.
In addition please decline any solicitations you may receive for donations claiming to be from Bethel Orphanage, whether by phone, by email or any other correspondence. They are from fraudulent people who’re so LAZY and wicked they even resort to robbing in the name of helping poor children. Thanks. God bless you.
