Children are the unwitting victims of poverty, civil upheaval, war and disease. An overwhelming number of children are abandoned, orphaned, abused and live on the streets of major cities. The care of vulnerable children is therefore among the primary concerns of Family Care Foundation.
Some of our projects that support children
The goal of Family Care Cambodia is to enhance the quality of life and development in Cambodia, especially for those who are disadvantaged. We invest particularly in Cambodia’s children and youth of today, to help build the leaders of tomorrow.
Espoir Congo (Espoir being "Hope" in French) cares for orphaned and underprivileged children in the village of Kikimi, just outside Kinshasa, in collaboration with a Congolese association (SABEC) which assumes legal responsibility for the children.
Cornerstone Project works hard to improve the quality of life for orphans, abandoned children, widows, handicapped, blind and the poor in and around Phnom Penh, as well as in Kandal and Siem Reap provinces.
In 2005 MFS focused its efforts on establishing the “Urafiki” or “Friendship” Center—a centrally-located facility providing basic food supplies, educational programs, vocational skills training and a warm and supportive environment for orphans and destitute families in the surrounding community.
FDSC’s primary objective is to provide educational opportunities for all ages, as well as targeted programs to address the emotional and physical needs of rural Thailand’s youth. The aim is to aid and support underprivileged children and teenagers in becoming positive and productive members of society, who are focused, socially well-adjusted and able to build constructive relationships.
