Current Appeals

Volunteers at a fundraising event

We are currently fundraising for:

1. Projects offering food and shelter 

Since the pandemic started, organisations offering shelter to children have seen their levels of support drop, whilst the children’s needs remain the same. We have been giving extra assistance to the centres run by Casa Mea in Romania and Manos Abiertas in Argentina since March. We are grateful to our supporters for making this possible.

Some of our partner organisations in South Africa, ORT SA CAPE and The Future Factory, as well as New Life in Ghana, have set up new food distribution programmes, in response to the increase in poverty levels, caused by the lockdowns. We are thankful to each person who has supported these new projects too.

The need for food and shelter is ongoing and any support towards these projects would make such a big difference right now. If you would like to contribute, you can do so here via Paypal.

If you are donating to support a certain project, please include its name in the space where you can leave a message, otherwise your donation will be allocated to the project where the need is greatest. We will keep you updated with how you have helped the children.

2. Assistance for schools and education centres that are reopening

In some of the countries where we work, the lockdown restrictions are being eased and schools and education centres are reopening again. To be able to do so safely, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is needed. We are grateful to our supporters who helped with donations for PPE for Pinocchio Creche in South Africa. Some costs will be ongoing, such as the increased amounts of bleach and hand sanitiser that will be needed.

New Life in Ghana, has asked for help with new desks and chairs for its school, so that the classrooms can be set up with an adequate amount of spacing between the desks. More information about the school can be found here.

If you would like to contribute, you can do so here via Paypal.

If you are donating to support a certain project, please include its name in the space where you can leave a message, otherwise your donation will be allocated to the project where the need is greatest. We will keep you updated with how you have helped the children.
