We care for some of the world's most vulnerable children.

Children who have suffered unimaginable abuse, abandonment, neglect, are orphans or are living in abject poverty, sometimes as refugees.

We are a UK Christian charity that cares for some of the world’s most vulnerable children, of all faiths and none. 


 We do this by supporting about 40 projects in seven developing countries, all in some of the most difficult places in the world. These include schools, care centres, residential and foster care projects, family support and justice programmes, and so much more. We provide all round loving and holistic care for all of the children, with four clear goals for each one.

Our Mission: Caring for some of the world’s most vulnerable children

The breakup of her parents, sexual abuse by a stepfather, pregnancy at 13, betrayal and rejection by family, relocation to a place where she knew no one – any one of these would scar a child. But layered one at a time over a young girl’s heart, they shattered Maria and left her almost impenetrable. It would take a long time and intense loving therapy to break through the walls she had constructed to survive, to protect herself.

It wasn’t always this way. Maria had a loving single mum and pleasant memories of her first few years – playing with cousins, family holiday celebrations, visiting relatives in other towns. But life began to change when her mother met a man and made a quick decision to marry. The man promised to take good care of the family…
