With your support throughout 2016, we have been making a difference to so many people at the children’s home, in the local community and in other projects that we support.
During 2016 the children’s home has welcomed 49 new children into its care – 47 of these have been for short term temporary care which may be due to abandonment, trafficking, or for other reasons. 26 of them have already been reunited with family members. Five children who have been at the home for longer term care have been successfully reunified with their families and we continue to fund their education fees. 2016 also saw the Community Education Support Programme increase in the number of local children supported in their education from 3 to 23.
As you sit down for your Christmas dinner this year, spare a thought for all the happy children and families that you have helped us feed this Christmas.
- 72 children at the home. This includes our special visitors – some of the children who have been reunified over the past few years
- 16 staff at the home
- Over 50 people in the community – 18 families who have been identified locally who need our support
Thank you all for your support for Tŷ Cariad Africa in 2016, we are truly grateful. Have a Happy Christmas and fantastic New Year!
