Welcome to ‘The Children of Yahweh Foundation!’

About Us

Children of Yahweh Foundation Inc. is a local, non-profit organization that brings children with cancer from North and South Carolina to Myrtle Beach for a fun-filled weekend! Our foundation hosts the sick child and their family for the weekend, and treats them to various area attractions and restaurants. As a foundation, our goal is to share the light and hope of Christ with a child who is battling cancer, by giving them an expense-free opportunity to get away from hospitals and treatments for a weekend. Our foundation gives each child a Bible with the hopes that they find comfort and strength through the Word of Jesus Christ during their most difficult times. While the families are visiting local attractions, our foundation strives to capture these moments on camera, and give the families these photographs as a continual memory of their vacation with us. The Children of Yahweh Foundation hosts approximately 20 families per year, and that number is continuing to grow. With the help of our generous sponsors, we are able to continue the mission that God as placed on our hearts.
