By 2015 it was estimated that there were over 150 million orphans on the planet (Children who had lost either one or both parents). Just as important are the millions of children who at some point have suffered a disconnection with parents, who are unable to be with their children for various reasons.
To ‘Fight for the Fatherless’ is something that God says all Christians should do, to represent his heart as a Father towards all children but especially the most vulnerable. Maybe you’re a child who has both parents but there are still times when you feel completely alone, well know that God’s desire is to be a Father to you as well and so that’s also why we are here.
The reality is that there are millions of children in our world just like you, who deserve nothing less than the same love, care and commitment from others that every parent would give to their own children.
We decided in 2017 that others who believed this, including our fellow International Athletes, some of whom had been orphaned or disconnected from their parents themselves , could inspire and lead every adult to ‘Fight for the Fatherless’. At the same time we decided that we could encourage, guide and inspire you through our messages, achievements and stories, which we began sharing with you every day on Social media and that’s how our story began.
