LUV Day—aka Valentine’s Day—is a day to amplify love put into action in the service of others. This Love in Action protects and empowers the vulnerable in our communities and in the warzones of Sudan and South Sudan.
To celebrate the true meaning of Valentine’s Day this year, Lift Up the Vulnerable asks that you give LUV to our world’s most vulnerable children and women all month long. Your generosity will provide safety, health and opportunity to orphans and widows in Sudan and South Sudan who desperately need our love and support right now. Lack of healthcare, food insecurity and the constant threat of violence and trafficking have been amplified by the global pandemic and economic shutdown, and the orphans of Sudan are being most severely impacted.
Through the power of the LUV network, these children can find hope through faith. They can access education, career pathways and economic empowerment that will help them reach their full potential and develop the leadership skills to heal their communities from within.
Celebrating LUV all month long provides an opportunity for friends, families, colleagues, and community groups to share LUV locally and impact lives globally. Will you join us in giving hundreds of children the gift of love this month?
Here are three simple ways to get ready for #LUVDay2021.
