Trinity Cranford Episcopal Church is hosting a charity bake sale fundraiser on Sunday April 29, 2018 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM in Sherlock Hall at Trinity Church, 119 Forest Avenue, Cranford, NJ. "Proceeds will benefit The Good Shepherd Home for Children in Cameroon that cares for orphaned children." said Marion Nechuta, Trinity's Outreach Team Leader. "We are happy to help support this important, life giving work. Trinity Cranford sponsors two of the orphans, Daniella and Musuga," Mrs. Nechuta continued. “We invited everyone to join us helping the orphans,” she concluded.

The Good Shepherd Home for Children is the calling of Sister Jane Mankaa who has dedicated her life to nurturing the orphans of her country. It is located in the North West Province of Cameroon, an area with 50,000 orphaned children. Over 150 of them have found a home at Good Shepherd where they are sheltered, fed, clothed, educated and most of all, loved.  Sister Jane does not turn any child away and no child is put up for adoption.  The children truly live in a loving family environment. The Cameroon government has recognized Good Shepard as one of the finest orphanages in the country. For more information about The Good Shepherd Home visit http://www.goodshepherdhome.org/.
