About U4O

Our Story

Fighting to create a Brighter Future

Unity 4 Orphans (U4O) officially launched in 2010, but its roots stretch back years earlier. In 2009 U4O’s Founder, Joe Brandi, took a trip to Kenya with World Orphans where the staggering number of orphans worldwide became a reality. Joe committed his life to fighting for vulnerable children. He began his fight for creating brighter futures for orphans by joining forces with The Rock Church in San Diego, CA.

After leading short-term trips to Mexico through the church, his vision grew and Unity 4 Orphans evolved. Unity 4 Orphans focuses on the least assisted orphanages in Mexico and Latin America and has blessed over 2,000 children since 2010. Quality relationships are at the core of Unity 4 Orphans where individual children are provided with the love, consistency, quality relationships, and dignity they deserve.
