Making a difference
starts with YOU

Happy New Year! We hope that the coming year’s filled with happiness and joy.

If you’re a friend, thank you for the incredible difference you’ve made in the lives of the vulnerable and orphaned little ones in our care.  And as we begin yet another year we’re so grateful that we can call you our friend.

If you’d like to support our children at this crucial time in the year please make your online donation here. It’ll help in more ways than you can imagine.

If you’re a parent yourself you’ll know that a new school year is a costly affair! Not only are school uniforms and sporting kits needed, but there’s also a long stationery list to consider too.

Your gift today will not only help us get our young ones geared up for the new school year, it’ll also help them fit in with their friends and not be seen as ‘different’.

Please make your donation today and give our boys and girls the chance for a bright start to 2014.

We’re counting on your generosity and kindness so that we can continue to give our children the holistic care they need to flourish and pursue their dreams.

Thank you for all you do to help our boys and girls shine.

Gifts in kind and willing volunteers are also hugely appreciated. Please click here for more information, or telephone the home on
