Results of Whatever the Need 2020 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 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.

The global suffering created by coronavirus made 2020 an unprecedented year. Every year the homes ask for help with infrastructure like toilets, dormitories, dining halls and play areas. This year we’ve also been asked for water buffaloes and farm animals to provide added food security. And the most universal request was for technology such as TVs and computers so the children can attend their classes online.

Whatever the Need Campaign Results

Thank you for your kind support for what the homes needed most.

We are currently featuring another exciting project – a girl’s dorm. This project is almost finished but needs a little bit more funding. Click the button to learn more or give. If we all pitch in, we can finish this. Donations of all sizes welcome.

Loretta met David Purviance on a chance trip in 2006, while seeking to be of service to the vulnerable children in India.  Since then, Loretta has been a longtime supporter of World’s Children as a donor, sponsor, and previous Board member.  She had the wonderful opportunity to return to India twice to visit several World’s Children orphanages, and even identified the Happy Home orphanage and petitioned to bring it into the WC family. Loretta raised funds to build a well at Happy Home, where it now has clean water for all the children and staff.

She also serves as the Program Manager for the County’s Gender Health Program, serving patients seeking gender-affirming care in a safe environment.  Before her work with Los Angeles County, Loretta spent many years serving non-profit organizations in CA and in MN, her last as the Executive Director of a statewide non-profit in MN. She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.
