help support vulnerable women and children in colombia
A longstanding effort of both Children’s Home and LSS, Colombia’s Orphanage Assistance project helps orphaned and abandoned children from across Colombia receive the quality care and services they deserve. It also helps organizations to provide family preservation programming such as parenting classes, lodging and skill development for unwed mothers. Contributions help to provide: food, clothing, skills training, medical care, education, therapies and other ongoing needs of several orphanages and private adoption homes.
