Care Centres

In every community in which we work, there are always other vulnerable children who still live with their families – and who are stuck in a devastating cycle of poverty and deprivation. In poor countries, it is hard enough for a family to survive when the father is working. But too often, fathers die from sickness, accidents, or war, or simply abandon their families. Women who are widowed or abandoned have few job opportunities, and there are even fewer government assistance programmes. In such cases, it can become virtually impossible for them to feed and care for their children.

For this reason, we provide many of the same services — healthy meals, basic medical care, spiritual guidance and education — to non-residential children through our Care Centre programmes. These services assist fragile families by helping single mothers or grandmothers protect their children - and help to reverse the cycle of hopelessness and poverty!
