Unfortunately, crime is a problem at Lily and we are in need of security upgrades around the campus. Would you help us increase our security with donations for:

  • LED floodlights
  • Security cameras
  • Fencing
  • Gates
  • Security Guard Salaries

Boys' Pants/Trousers

We have an urgent need for boys pants/trousers (ages 4-18 years). Would consider making a donation that would help clothe our boys?

Household Appliances

We currently have 3 functioning vacuums for 19 homes, and other appliances are in high demand as well. Would you please help our caregiver’s better care for the children by giving them the tools they need to keep the homes running well?

  • Vacuum cleaners
  • Irons
  • Wall clocks

Furniture for Children's Homes

We have a great need for furniture in our children’s houses. Most of the furniture we received many years ago is falling apart and needs to be replaced.

  • Sofas
  • Beds and mattresses
  • Dining tables and chairs
  • Chests of drawers
  • Wall units

Upgrade to Kitchens

Upgrading of kitchen units and flooring. The current plywood units are old, swollen and rotting. The carpeted floors need to be replaced with a hygienic vinyl option.

  • Two washing machines

Our maintenance team works very hard to keep up with repairs, but they don’t always have the needed supplies. Will you help our team by providing the supplies needed to fix up the homes?

  • Tiles
  • Flooring
  • Paint
  • Tools

Commercial Kitchen Appliances

When we expanded our church building we built a kitchen with the hope of sharing more communal meals within the village. But we haven’t been able to acquire the appliances yet. Would you help us finish our kitchen with large, commercial grade appliances?

  • Refrigerator
  • Gas stove
  • Cutlery and crockery


With children ranging from 12 months to 18 years old, we need quality clothing in all sizes. We request that donated clothing be in good condition.

  • Pants/trousers
  • Shoes
  • Underwear
  • Bras

However, our greatest need is always winter items for older children. As such donations of jerseys and tracksuits for 12 to 18 year olds will always be welcomed.

Soccer Balls

Our kids love to play soccer and we go through soccer balls like bubble gum. We also could use soccer boots and jerseys!
