About Us

The ALKARE Foundation Orphan Ministry is a non-profit charity 501 (c)(3) headquartered in Rohnert Park, CA.  We are a 100% volunteer operating foundation, no salaries and all travel to the orphanages are at the sole expense of the volunteer.

The ALKARE Foundation Orphan Ministry is not connected to any church denomination and was formed in loving memory of Karla Afman. The Board of Directors all have a passion and heart to serve orphans in the most vulnerable of settings.
