Make a Donation
All donations are pooled internationally; wherever possible, staff from child development centres purchase the gifts from within their local communities, encouraging local businesses and boosting the local economy. We recommend a gift of $30 to ensure each child receives a suitable gift, and you are always welcome to donate more. By giving more than $30, you increase the value of every child’s gift and assist those sponsors who are unable to contribute.
Thank you for giving so generously to help children and their families feel loved and accepted, to show them that they matter to God and to us—especially at Christmas.
Your support helps to provide emergency food and water, temporary shelter, emergency medical care, basic sanitation and many essential things for survival.
The program assists pregnant women, at-risk babies and infants and their mothers and caregivers by providing critical interventions, such as medical assistance, pre-natal and post-natal care, and nutritious food.
The program also educates mothers on how to provide a safe home environment and age-appropriate developmental opportunities so that their babies and infants have greater opportunities for healthy growth. Mothers and caregivers are also taught literacy and numeracy skills and many receive support for vocational training and income-generating activities to help improve the long-term economic capacity of their families. Mothers, caregivers and children also receive spiritual nurturing so that they can have the opportunity to develop a dynamic lifelong relationship with Christ.
