Many of us will have fond memories of the holidays with family as a child, but some children aren't so lucky. Help us bring children home for the holidays.
GIVE THE BEST GIFT ANY CHILD CAN RECEIVE THIS YEAR...
8 in every 10 children in orphanages or institutions have at least one living relative. Worse still, the reason children are left in institutions are often avoidable.
Lack of financial, educational or chilcare support can often lead relatives into believing a child may have a better life in an institution—but this is not the case.
To date we've reunited X children with families, but we need your help. We want to see as many children as many vulnerable children back with a family to make the holiday memories they'll cherish for a lifetime. This can only be done with your support:
“Christmas is a time for family."
