Support

Child Haven is fortunate to work with Support Groups around the world. The groups share a common desire to help with Child Haven's work with destitute women and children and with refugees.

Support Group members provide financial support through fundraising activities such as dinners, sales, auctions, professional skills, expert advice and good humour, all at no charge to Child Haven.

Through these activities, local communities become aware of the difficult realities facing destitute single mothers, children and families in India and Nepal. Child Haven Support Groups offer a variety of ways for concerned citizens to become involved. A quarterly newsletter keeps all the groups in touch and provides news and photos of children and staff in all the Homes.

Some of the support groups meet on a regular basis, others meet occasionally to plan a specific event. Everyone is urged to let us know of their own ideas. Please contact the Child Haven office before planning an event so we can help guide you and your group.

Many people are interested in helping Child Haven with this hands-on approach. We invite them to contact the people listed below. All our Support Groups welcome new members.
