"My children would go to bed hungry, but now they eat and sleep well. Their stomachs are full. So when people see that my children are okay and happy and playing, they regard us as people. Before we were the outcasts of the community because we had nothing."
- Mama Naserien
Sponsor a Family
You can sponsor a family for only $60 AUD/NZD per month.
The money goes towards food, clothing, water and other necessities vital for survival. Families range in size, but average around six children. Please remember that unfortunately, the women do not get to decide how many children they have.
You can truly make a difference to the lives of these families. Living on less than $1 per day, a guaranteed meal will make the world of a difference, and not to mention they will know that someone out there cares about them.
Please click "Sponsor This Family" next to the family you wish to help, and proceed to set up a direct debit.
Mama Soikante's Family
"My 12-year-old daughter had anemia because we didn't have enough money to buy food. Then we didn't have money to treat her. Then we didn't have money for her funeral."
Reverend Paul's Family
"People think that because I am a Pastor, I get paid, I have food on the table. But the Church hasn't paid me in years. Isn't it ironic? It just means I have to improvise to make sure my children get a meal most nights"
Mama Jane's Family
"My autistic daughter was raped by a stranger and gave birth to a baby. A few months ago she was raped again when no-one was home. We'd only gone out for a little while. Her daughter, who is now 3, saw the whole thing. She came screaming to the neighbours but by the time they got there, the man had escaped."
Koko Gilbert's Family
"I couldn't have children, you know, that's a great shame in this community. So I adopted two. My daughter and her husband both died and left behind their orphaned children. And my son is an alcoholic. I am raising all of my grandchildren now."
Mama Yiantai's Family
"When we haven't eaten for two or three days, I'll put rocks into the cooking pot and add some water. Then I'll tell the children that dinner is cooking and I will wait for them to fall asleep. It's the only thing I can do."
Mama Retoe's Family
"My daughter almost died from pneumonia. It's not that I didn't care about her - actually, she's the reason I struggle through life - it's because I didn't have any money to go to the doctor. I couldn't even afford the motorbike ride there."
