Oneisphorus Children's Home

 

Oneisphorus Children's Home

This wonderful residential centre provides love and holistic care to about 60 children who have either been abandoned or orphaned, as we try to reintegrate them back into a loving family. For many of them they were sadly abandoned because they are disabled.

Onesiphorus Children’s Home in Taitung is the second oldest of all of our sites, where our five-acre campus provides care for 60 children who were either abandoned or orphaned, often due to disability. In each family-style home, house parents patiently attend to the needs of 8-12 children.

We provide our children with quality education, medical care, nutritious food, and the good news of the Gospel. In addition, the kids have access to a chapel, library, computer lab, pool, and sports facilities, helping to engage bodies, minds, and souls. An auditorium and office space are also on site.

It is a wonderful place where God clearly is at work with the children who we serve there.

Oneisphorus Children’s Home: A story of hope

Chen-Jui’s story (name changed to protect privacy)

We recently heard from a man who was Onesiphorus Home’s last polio victim. Even though he ran away often, he always returned. He greatly benefitted from the medical care and other support at Onesiphorus and today is a gifted athlete, competing internationally in basketball wheelchair races and other sporting events.

Chen-Jui is now married and has a daughter and shared, “I’m so glad you taught me how to type. I’m still using it all the time, and it is a very practical skill to have. Thanks for all that you have taught me.”
