For the children
Each and every abandoned (orphaned) child
has to live without the love and support of his
own father and mother. These children
therefore are completely on their own and have
to behave like “grown-ups” too (soon) in order
to survive. But a child deserves to be a child!
We at Heart for Children share the conviction
that the shelter of a loving family and a warm
family life is the most desirable situation for every child.
The solution Heart for Children offers is to create new families within the own
community to which the child belongs. For this reason we look for and find (foster)
mothers/parents who are willing to take care of a family of at the most six
(orphaned) children. In co-ordination with the local authorities these children are
brought into a loving home. A home with all the amenities a child needs. They are
again part of a family in a sheltered environment! These children will again have a
mother they can call: “Mama”.
Of course we aim at finding as many fathers and
mothers as possible, but in practice there are
more mothers willing to take this task upon
themselves. This is a win-win situation: they will
have a shelter as well as a purpose for their
own lives: Sharing their love with the children.
This care-model turns out to be very effective.
Thanks to our donors, these children receive
food, shelter, clothing, medication and schooling. But also heating, water and light
and most importantly safety and love. The children are not offered “half-hope” but
“full-hope”. They receive a christian education and on Sundays they go to
Sunday-school where they are told of a heavenly Father who loves them!
