Caring for Needy Children

Taking care of 50,203 children is no easy task, but through our person-to-person sponsorship program, 12,228 sponsors have lovingly “adopted” these children into their families.

Generous donors in North America change the lives of little ones, helping to ensure them with good health care, instilling values and making an investment in the future of our world.

These children are fed, clothed, housed, educated and nurtured by dedicated caregivers in the 442 institutions we assist, most of which are in India, Northeast Africa and the Middle East.

  • Dessie Kidane Meheret School in Ethiopia educates approximately 1,600 Christian and Muslim students in grades 1 through 10. CNEWA helped them build and furnish new classrooms and bathrooms.
  • St. Joseph’s After Care Home for Adolescent Girls in Pulincunnoo, India, cares for orphans and girls from poor and broken families. CNEWA supports 26 girls as they pursue courses in nursing and computers.

Your generosity provides a future for tens of thousands of young lives.
