Previous F4O Projects
In 2011, Dr. Wayne Lavender accepted a teaching assignment at the University of Human Development in the Kurdish city of Sulaymaniyah, Iraq. During his time there, he established a chapter of the Foundation 4 Orphans. Wayne worked with university students from his school and others to create a mentor program for orphans and vulnerable children in Iraq where ongoing wars and conflicts continue to claim many soldiers and civilians. F4O continues to work throughout the region—and has expanded its mission from mentoring children in need to visiting refugee camps for those fleeing either the Syrian regime or areas overrun by ISIS.
