Our impact

How we have helped

We cannot do what we do without the support of the community. Learn how, together, we made a difference in children's lives in 2015

We are responsible for the healthy and shining future of children. #notanotherchild


Childhood is the most sacred and magical time of ones life. No child deserves to have that taken away by abuse or neglect.


Every child has the right to be cherished, loved, a part of something special.


Having grown up in conditions like these children I think it is beautiful that this foundation exists and I urge everyone to support it.


I wish I had giant angel wings to protect all abused children & make them happy & safe ... please never give up on them.


Protecting children is something we can all do.


I'm Brazilian and I follow the Foundation's work from afar; think it's heavenly. Wish I could, one day, do what you guys do

I hated counselling at first, but it helped a lot and still does. I am not as angry.
