We hope you’ll join us in caring for a group of children who can be easily forgotten: children who’ve had so much pain and so little love in their lives.

Please know without a doubt, without a single doubt, that your contribution will help give these children back their right to thrive, planting the seeds that will help them grow into healthy, responsible, and loving adults.

Being a child shouldn’t have to hurt.
