Save money, Eat less, lose weight, Save a life.

WHAT WE DO,ORPHANED & ABANDONED CHILDREN'S HOMES

Each child represents a unique gift of life and possibility. They were born to run and play and explore and grow and learn. And to dream of what they will be "when they grow up."
But for millions of orphaned and abandoned children in Africa, Latin America and Asia, even the dream of a better future is an unimagined luxury . . .
Unless we have seen it with our own eyes, it is difficult for most of us to imagine the reality of small children living in a cardboard box, or under a bridge, or in a garbage dump. We don't want to imagine it.
And yet this is a daily reality in many poor countries, particularly those whose adult populations have been decimated by war or HIV/AIDS. These children are desperately vulnerable to malnutrition and disease , and often fall prey to exploitation and abuse by unscrupulous adults.
Children's Hunger Relief Fund seeks to rescue as many of these orphaned and abandoned children as possible, providing them with new lives of safety and hope in our children's homes.
The children in our homes receive the love and nurture of dedicated caregivers.
They play and explore.
They sleep in clean beds knowing that they are safe.
They eat a good meal knowing that there will be another to follow.
They go to school and learn how to read and write.
.And dream of what they might be, when they grow up .
Of all the work we do on behalf of children, it is the work of our orphaned and abandoned children's homes that we find the most gratifying - and arguably the most significant over the long term. The lives of these children are truly transformed - forever . Some of our "graduates" have gone on to make substantial contributions to their local economies and communities. Many come back to volunteer at the homes which sheltered them, providing support and encouragement to the younger children.
We call that saving the world -- one child at a time.
Children’s Hunger Relief Fund sponsors numerous children’s homes in Africa, Central America and Asia.
Afghanistan: Samaritan Homes
Kenya: Samaritan Homeless Children's Center
Mexico: Hogar de Niños
Nicaragua: Hogar de Fé, Hogar el Reposo, La Concha
Rwanda: Imbabazi Orphanage
Uganda: Charis Center Zambia: House of Moses


The average cost to provide room, board and education for a child in one of our homes is approximately $40 per month. If you would like to help, please click here.>>

considering the vast sums spent on our military in Iraq alone. one month of that money would feed the starving people of our world for a year and ease the finacial burdens of all Americans.

If 3,000,000 workers contributed it would help about 20,000 in need

Some businesses have group sponsorships where say twenty people may contribute 50 cents
per week (NEXT TO NOTHING) the business being the sponsor

Hi there vesty, the firm that I was employed by in Hornsby NSW Aus had a voluntary scheme where when you joined you could donate from 25cents per week to as much as you could afford, in most cases it was about $1.00, I'm not sure how and where it was distributed but some went to famine relief in Africa I think there are lot of firms in Australia doing this.
Your pre xmas fundraising, will it still continue now you are fully retired?

Thanks all for your comments.
LDL: There are others more capable of taking my place-I'm beginning to get slightly knackered and wish to slow down, so the answer is not any more; unless I find some magic elixir.
There may be a lot of firms collecting regular donations from the pay cheques of their employees, but it is a safe bet to presume there are far more firms not doing it; than doing it.

I have received several enquiries by E mail, more or less asking the same questions, and each asking how do they initiate this programme.
Simply get your welfare person or accountant, to receive permission from your employers to contact any of the organizations of your choice indicated at the bottom of this post.
Reminder, please DO NOT remit any donations to me in any way or form, I am NOT a collection agency, Thank you for your time reading this. Vest.
