Children at risk… of what or from whom you may ask? Many of them are at risk of being abandoned to a cold institution away from their home, friends and family!  Others are left to fend for themselves living on the street or in centers where they flee as soon as they are able. Most live in fear of being beaten, used, yelled at or simply ignored by the adults around them. They are not worried about turning in their homework but about where they will eat, sleep and who will love them tomorrow. Most will end up in prostitution, working with drugs, or dying in an institution.

Our main goal is to see children living in healthy families where they can reach their potential in all areas: social, physical mental and spiritual. This is done through therapy, training, and providing the needed resources.

We need your help! Are you a physical or occupational therapist? Willing to work in rural settings?
