We took over our first community-based children’s home in Ba Vi District 18 years ago. We now have 3 homes and are committed to caring for 62 children through to adulthood.
At first an organization in Europe underwrote most of the expenses of caring for these children. But in 2012 their focus shifted and they withdrew their support, expecting us to close the homes. However, we still saw the need for these homes and remained committed to the children. We began a sponsorship program to gather the needed support. As we sought sponsors for all the children, they still needed to be housed, clothed and fed leading to a substantial budget shortfall.
- In 2014, 34 children were sponsored leaving a shortfall of $24,000
- In 2015, 44 children were sponsored leaving a shortfall of $16,380
- In 2016, 52 children were sponsored leaving a shortfall of $10,140
- In 2017, all 66 children were at least partially sponsored for most of the year, however costs also increased leading to a shortfall of $15,600.
Additional sponsors and co-sponsors are needed to meet the goal of having no shortfall in 2018. Sponsor a Child
Making up this shortfall is an urgent need as it has drained our reserves and gifts in any amount would be much appreciated.
