"Children around the world are languishing in orphanages because parents can't afford to pay for their food, clothes and education. It's outrageous that children are separated from their families when they have parents who, given a bit of help, could look after them... I believe that families around the world should be supported to stay together, and more needs to be done to stop children being put into care unnecessarily." -- Paul O'Grady, a Save the Children ambassador.

4 out of 5 “orphans” in orphanages have a living parent, while virtually all have extended family. What most people don't know is that many of these children would be able to go home to a parent or family member with the right supports!⁠

Our Story

Helping Children Worldwide is strengthening communities in Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in the world, by providing vulnerable children and their families with opportunities for education, health care, and spiritual mentoring. The programs at the Child Rescue Centre and Mercy Hospital are especially focused on education, family stability, maternal and infant mortality, and childhood malnutrition. By partnering with local government and child advocacy organizations in Sierra Leone, we help children and families achieve their wonderful, God-given potential. Join us today to transform lives and communities!

The Child Rescue Centre (CRC) supports nearly 600 vulnerable children and youth in Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in the world, by providing for their education, health care, and spiritual mentoring. Our programs help struggling families keep their children in school, so that they can become self-sufficient leaders in their communities and in their nation. For just $25 a month, you can help a child reach their awesome God-given potential.

Mercy Hospital’s mission is to improve infant, child, and maternal health by providing holistic, community-focused care. The hospital serves the second largest city in Sierra Leone with a trained and dedicated medical staff, a laboratory, and a fully stocked pharmacy, providing care to thousands of patients each year, regardless of ability to pay. Mercy’s reach extends beyond the hospital and into the surrounding villages through community-based clinics and education programs, including nutrition clinics, prenatal care, malaria testing and treatment, and confidential HIV/AIDS testing and counseling.

I'm reaching out to ALL children I started this on our first lockdown, now schools care homes,hospitals and anyone who likes a FREE story and a smile tunes in. Please could you share. It's a free service for all children. with over 1.1k members worldwide- this brilliant storyteller will make books exciting again x https://www.facebook.com/groups/1505612679619717/?ref=share
Good day to all, I hope you are well, well I will tell you; It happens that my son was recently born, who suffers from Infantile Spasms, seizures, which often affect my five-month-old son, and for his treatment he needs ACTH, daily ACTH injections are given for a period of weeks up to several months. The problem is that this drug is not approved by the FDA, which is why it has a very high cost of close to 300 thousand dollars per unit, and since for work reasons I went to live in Chile, it was even more expensive, currently I am unemployed Due to the social crisis that the country lived through because of the communist outbreak, we were making bingos to be able to pay for its treatment, even mortgaging our house, but even so it was not enough, in addition to that because of the COVID-19 we can no longer make bingos, the truth we are very desperate as a family, we do not know what to do, and that is why I request help from people from a country as great, noble and supportive as theirs, I hope they can contribute, any amount is very well received, everything It is well received, I will leave a link in paypal for those who want to help us and please spread the word. GOD BLESS YOU paypal.me/daniGUrru

Great work of helping Orphans.If God links us with this Organization or anyone who would wish to connect with us in helping Orphans in Kenya,then we would give glory to God. https://web.facebook.com/KICWOSUP/?modal=admin_todo_tour

Can someone tell me if the swing set and sliding board at the facility in Bo was made in Sierra Leone? Was it made from old bed frames? I would like a girl's school in Moyamba that I support to have playground equipment, but it needs to be "budget" friendly. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :)
