Where We Serve

Lira, Uganda


Lira, the fourth-largest town in Uganda (with a population of just over 100,000) is located in northern Uganda, 215 miles north of the capital city, Kampala. Although our ministry site is located in the nearby village of Anai-Okii, Lira is the main city in the region where we serve.

Lira Children's Home

Lira, Uganda

Children of the Nations opened the doors to its Lira Children's Home in fall of 2007. Located in a residential area, this rented home houses 55 orphans under full-time residential care. After working with social services and following countless counseling sessions, these children, many orphaned traumatized during the long-running rebel war, were considered the worst-of-the-worst cases. For most, immediate intervention was a must.

Lilongwe, Malawi


Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi, lies in the country’s central region. Due to its location on the main north-south route through the country and the road to Zambia, by the 1970s Lilongwe grew to become the second largest city in Malawi.

Praise God that the Third Annual Run for Africa 5K race in Orlando, Florida, was a huge success! The July 30 race drew more than 500 participants and raised awareness and financial support for COTN’s ministries.

The people of Cornerstone Church in Long Beach, California, packaged 40,000 meals for our children on July 16. Praise the Lord for this.

Please pray that God will provide enough supplies to send to our children for the upcoming school year.
