Whatever the Need
Annual Campaign

Annual Campaign for Special Projects



Every year our annual campaign addresses infrastructure needs at the children’s homes we support. Join us in improving the lives of orphans and vulnerable children.

It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done.   —Charles Dickens
 

 

Announcing Whatever the Need Annual Campaign

Fate determined the children must grow up in an orphanage, but we can make their lives fulfilling and their environment safe. Sponsorship support provides the basic necessities a child needs – food, shelter, education and love. But over time we have learned that many other threads make up the fabric of a child’s welfare. That’s where special projects come in.

Each fall we ask if you can give a little more to make life a bit better for children who must grow up in an orphanage. And each year you amaze us with your willingness to fund renovations and improvements in the children’s homes.

Our annual campaign theme this year is Whatever the Need. The global suffering created by coronavirus has made 2020 an unprecedented year. Every year the homes ask for toilets, dormitories, dining halls and play areas. This year we wanted to cover all possibilities. On the one hand, we’ve been asked for water buffaloes to provide added food security. On the other hand, the children need technology such as TVs and computers to attend their classes online. We also have some large infrastructure requests like bathing facilities and study halls.

Our history tells us that when we all chip in, we can accomplish more than we ever thought possible. Will you provide what you can so that whatever the need may be, the children will be covered? May you feel the way Charles Dickens’ character did when he said, “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done.”

We have included a list of those project requests. Please look them over and spend a little time thinking about how you could help.
