“To whom much is given, much is expected…”
Marjory Sheba strongly attests to the stewardship of giving. She believes that together we can all make a difference by doing our share in helping the needy of the world, be it with our time, talent or treasure. She urges all to find and adopt a cause or charity to give to. She states, “When we give to help change the lives of others, in reality, it’s our own lives we are saving.” Below are some of the organizations Marjory Sheba gives her support to and endorses.
A leader among private, charitable U.S. organizations assisting Africa, Africare is also the oldest and largest African-American led organization in the field. Africare places communities at the center of development — in the belief that only through strong communities can Africa feed itself, develop and manage its natural resources, provide adequate education and vocational training, address people’s needs for health care and disease prevention, achieve economic well-being and live in peace.
Africare’s programs address needs in three principal areas:
- Health and HIV/AIDS
- Food security and agriculture
- Emergency response
Africare now reaches families and communities in some 25 countries in every major region of Sub-Saharan Africa, from Senegal to South Africa and from Chad to Mozambique. Since its founding in 1970, Africare has delivered more than $710 million in assistance — over 2,000 projects — to 3 6 countries Africa-wide. To learn more, visit: www.AfriCare.org

Their primary objective is to provide housing, food, water, medical support and opportunity for the desperately homeless around the world, particularly in the Caribbean, South America, Indonesia and here in the United States of America.
Caring House Project Foundation is currently working to establish villages consisting of 50 double-unit homes each, for families left homeless by the recent floods in Cabaret and Gonaive, Haiti. These 50 homes will provide shelter for 400 men, women and children.
The homes will include a front porch, a small kitchenette, and the homeowners will also have an individual sanitation unit and shower closet. A community center with a built-in clinic will be constructed as well. The building will be used for providing health care, skills and vocational training, along with community meetings and prayer. 50 individual cisterns will be constructed, each with a capacity to hold 450 gallons of water, a catchment system will also be constructed.
