Working together with many charities across the world reaching out to people, a child breathes easier because we have lived and cared. Together we will all make the world a better place.
Help me to raise awareness and please lend your support to help these poor kids around the world and also in orphanages like china that need public awareness and to bring to the worlds attention just what goes on there. Look at the photos they are not meant to shcok but is a reality check. All kids deserve a good start to life..it is not their fault they ended up there and being treated with electrodes to control their behavior and where nappies are not changed for 6 days.
Thank you for your support.To know even one young life has breathed easier because you have lived and cared is priceless. We had a tremendous impact on the lives of children around the world and also orphans abandoned in China and families living abroad who hoped to adopt them. We are proud to announce that in the past year, we have:
- - Taken in 457 high risk infants from local orphanages
- Provided loving care for 629 infants and children who died of
severe illness or birth defects
- Funded and arranged 864 surgeries for infants and children
with severe defects
- Placed 612 new children into foster homes
- Overseen the continual, day to day care of an average of
over 1330 children, including approximately 6721 children in
our Care Foster Program and 1120 infants in our
Care Children's Homes
- Seen 892 of "our" children adopted into permanent loving
- Assisted families adopting special needs orphans by
providing a total of $139,500 in grants or loans.
Our mission of the Care Foundation is to give children and other orphans around the world the opportunity for a better life and to empower youth through direct humanitarian service. By providing extensive medical, social and educational programs devoted to children, we make a lasting contribution to our shared future.
The aims and objectives of the Association are: to help people in the following distinctions:
Forgotten children locked away from society;
Children in orphanages and in poverty;
To educate staff how to look after children.
Promote a culture of continuous evaluation of education programs worldwide;
Giving certainty to the distribution of aid for all children;
Promoting systematic process of education at all educational levels.
We are helping by being a part of the solution – taking a stand for all the children in the world today. They deserve this and they are the future generations of this world.
Our work in Eastern Europe including Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and some of the former soviet block countries. Across Eastern Europe families are among the poorest in Europe. Thousands of children are abandoned each year by parents who cannot afford to feeds or care for them. Children with mental or physical disabilities face the greatest threat of abandonment. Government agencies and private charities have built “children’s homes” across regions in order to take in these homeless children. These institutions house more than 27,000 children. They are often under-funded, over-crowded and frequently lack basic needs such as hot water and sanitary supplies. Each year we work with others to send dozens of truck loads of goods to these children’s homes. We provide essentials such as food, clothing and toiletries as well as educational materials and toys to help improve the daily lives of these children.
Thousands of children in eastern Europe, live in the streets. By day, they beg and steal. At night, they often turn to prostitution in order to earn money to feed themselves. Many live in underground tunnels, sniffing glue to get high and find a brief escape from the misery. Some get pregnant and begin raising new generations of street children.
We work with local charities to distribute packages of food, clothing and toiletries to children living on the street and to make sure they get basic medical attention. Partnering with these groups, we also are working to ensure younger children go to school and older children learn professional skills needed to find jobs later in life. We recently delivered dozens of sewing machines to local charities so they could teach teenagers how to make clothes and find jobs as tailors.
We work with children, their families and communities across Central and Eastern Europe, to ensure that children grow up in an environment where they have the opportunity to fulfil their potential. We move children out of institutions into family-based care, and to help keep together families at risk of breakdown due to the pressures of poverty, disease or conflict, and work to prevent child abandonment.
We have now set up meetings with the United Nations Children's Fund (unicef) and established private children's charities from overseas to be granted access on a regular basis to all welfare institutions holding minors. These include administrative measures to strengthen the outside monitoring of children's treatment, as well as improvements in the selection, training and discipline of institute staff. I have together with unicef sent a letter to the Chinese authorities saying that they should promulgate strict rules prohibiting the abuse of children in welfare institutions, such as excessive corporal punishment, tying of children's limbs, medically unjustified use of drugs to control children's behaviour, and all forms of paid or unpaid child labour. The ministry should also promulgate a formal disciplinary policy to be applied by institute management in cases of misconduct by junior staff and all staff at custodial welfare institutes should undertake a period of formal training, aimed at impressing on newly assigned employees that the protection of inmates' well-being is of paramount importance. Ordinary child-care workers should be trained in basic first-aid techniques, particularly to respond to cases of choking and accidental injuries, and in appropriate feeding methods for infants and small children, especially those with disabilities. Infants and small children should not be classified as 'mentally retarded' until they are old enough to undergo appropriate psychological tests. Training programs for child-care workers should emphasize the importance of individual care, attention and stimulation for infants' normal mental development.
The charities that are already working in China have a very difficult task. We have now secured the rights for four orphanages to receive food and adequate medical attention as well as equipment for development in early child years. There is so much to do and the work goes on.
Our Partnership with Saritsa foundation.
The charity has Directorates in 17 states of India for campaigning for its mission. The Foundation empowers communities to reduce risks from disease, disasters and impacts of climate change. It raises awareness, educates and trains peoples, especially, children, women, youth, disabled and the poor including citizens who are most vulnerable and have little access to capacity building education and training at grass root level. It is a National NGO with international dimensions.
Street children in Latin America are being robbed of their childhood. But every day, we offer these forgotten children the chance of a brighter future.
We believes that prevention is better than a cure. We know that it is far more effective to work with children before they start living on the streets. Across Latin America, there are many children living on the edge of street life. We aim to support these children so that the flow of young people onto the streets is reduced.
Our prevention work involves supporting vulnerable children as well as those who are already living on the streets. High-risk children include:
Children living in poverty
Children living with domestic violence
Children who have to live in prison with their families when a parent is sent to jail
Abused and neglected children
Our supported projects are working with these groups, providing education, protection, confidence building and practical support for these children. We also work closely with the families of these children to try and create a stable environment for them to grow up in.
We assist children suffering from malnutrition, diseases and lack of education and try and tackle the grass routes level of the causes of this.
Poverty in Africa can be defined as a situation when a certain section of people are unable to fulfil their basic needs. We in collaboration with government, donors, and private organisations is working on following our 5 Major Poverty Reduction Strategy..
1/ Better Governance
We are at the forefront of providing technical leadership and strategic support in promoting a sustainable democracy. Our goals in this programme include:
Strengthening the Rule of Law and Respect for Human Rights
Promoting More Genuine and Competitive Elections & Political Processes
Increased Development of a Politically Active Civil Society
More Transparent and Accountable Governance
Promoting free and independent media.
2/ Economic growth
Economic growth is key to transforming the developing world. Economic growth is thus the surest way for countries to generate the resources needed to deal with issues such as unstable markets for finance, energy and food crises, illiteracy, poor health and other long-term development challenges.
We work to help achieve rapid, sustained and broad-based economic growth, the growth needed to ensure the peoples’ well being over time.
3/ Eradicate Tribalism
The intensity of tribalism that is creeping into the politics of many countries today is a cause to worry for all..
Our aims to be the leading advocate for tribal eradication by creating an environment that facilitates deeper interaction and better understanding between individuals and communities, fostering a stronger sense of identity and building a more resilient social fabric.
4/ Fight Corruption
Our works to address corruption problems from both the demand and the supply side, those who demand bribes in exchange for services and those who supply bribes for preferential treatment.
Working with its partners, We addresses private sector participation in corruption by creating a business environment where corruption is unsustainable and address public sector participation by strengthening the rule of law and government standards.
5/ Fighting Poverty on Cross Cutting issues
We are working to fight poverty in Africa. We are also concerned with the promotion and defence of human rights. We also have long term sustainable programmers aimed at permanent poverty eradication but again this will take time.
Our work and causes touches thousands of lives, giving people something to smile about, bringing our continued work organization to a wider audience and achieve our corporate social responsibility objectives. We will all make a real difference to the world we all care passionately about and together we will empower poor out of poverty and the right to a decent life. From small scale entrepreneur to sponsors to volunteers, our teams across the world community is made up of a multitude of a variety of professionals passionate about empowering the poor out of poverty, and to contribute to try and make the world a safer and better place.
Our mission of the Care Foundation is to give Chinese and other orphans around the world the opportunity for a better life and to empower youth through direct humanitarian service. By providing extensive medical, social and educational programs devoted to children, we make a lasting contribution to our shared future.
I had witnessed orphans with needs suffering from neglect in institutions which lacked the tools to care for them. By taking the children out of the system and providing them with medical care and nurturing caretakers, we gave these children the chance for a brighter future.
With a glad heart, I welcome you into our growing global family. When like-minded people come together for a good purpose, wonderful things happen. I know that together we are stronger and together we will save more lives and give many more orphans the chance at a brighter future.
Thank you all for your support..

Lord Rogers and the Board of Directors
We have established the China Home in Beijing, which under the management of us, has cared for and provided life-saving surgeries for more than 560 medically fragile Chinese orphans since 2009. Since our founding, we have changed the lives of nearly 1,400 children. Many of these children have since been adopted into loving families.
All of us believe it is a logical and positive step in the evolution of our progress which is well established operationally in China and has a sterling reputation and track record of strong management, growth, and success built over thirteen years. In addition, the mission and other programs complement our mission and the China Care Homes we provide. For these reasons we believe fundraising efforts will benefit from this strategically proactive transition.
Action against child cruelty and its Board of Directors and Trustees will continue to provide significant financial support for the China Care Homes under our control and monitor their development and activities. We encourage those who have so generously given in the past to donate to us so the crucial work in China that began 11 years ago will endure this is as well as our other projects worldwide we are involved with.
The best news is that the mission and goals of our organizations have not changed--we operate with the welfare of China’s most vulnerable children in mind. We expect this deepening of our work and further integration of operations under the Chinese Government will enhance prospects for the China Homes, and most importantly, orphaned children in China.

Work goes on here in China. Today I met the Chinese minster for children and education. Together with the United nations I m trying to set up and get permission to send to China food, aid and also books for children in orphanages as well as better healthcare then they receive now...it is such a shame to see these children aged from 6 months to 12 years locked up 16 hours a day and treated by staff who have no experience with children..
I want to help every child in the world but I can not ..so if I can make a difference in some childrens lives and give them a good start in life then I m happy. some who have been badly treated by the chinese authorites here. They lock up children in orphanages and forget about them out of sight of the rest of the world..all children deserve a good education, food and a better standard of living and a good start to life..it is not their fault they ended up here.
There are concerns here that China conceals a secret world of starvation, disease, and unnatural death ..a world into which thousands of Chinese citizens disappear each year. The victims are neither the political activists nor the dissidents who dominate the international debate over human rights in the People's Republic; they are orphans and abandoned children in custodial institutions run by China's Ministry of Civil Affairs and left abandened. The pattern of cruelty, abuse, and malign neglect which has dominated child welfare work in China since the early 1950s, and which still constitutes one of the country's gravest human rights problems continues to this day. It is so shocking to see. The likelihood of survival beyond one year, for a newly admitted orphan in China's welfare institutions nationwide, is less than 50 per cent. In the case of Shanghai that I visited, there have been cosmetic improvements at the orphanages itself since 2001, designed to encourage foreign adoption, but there is evidence that many disabled infants and children are now simply transferred to a facility outside the city, where access for outsiders is extremely rare and where children are grossly mistreated. Many Chinese orphanages, including some recording death rates among the worst in the country, appear to enjoy more than sufficient budgets, including adequate wages, bonuses, and other personnel-related costs. Expenses for children's food, clothing, and other necessities, however, are extremely low in institutions throughout the country and very often money meant for children end up in staff back pockets.
The government reaction has been to maintain a facade of normalcy, to punish dissenters who have sought to expose abuses and, in certain crucial cases, to promote those responsible for the abuses. Ironically, the Chinese government has praised Shanghai's municipal orphanage extensively as a national model for the care of abandoned and disabled children. In addition to frequent flattering coverage in China's official media, the Shanghai Children's Welfare Institute receives considerable financial support from Chinese and international charities and hosts a steady stream of private and official visitors. Behind the institution's glossy official image, however, lies a pattern of horrifying abuse. The brutal treatment of orphans in Shanghai, which included deliberate starvation, torture, and sexual assault, continues to this day.This campaign of elimination could be kept secret through the complicity of both higher- and lower-level staff, and because the city's Bureau of Civil Affairs, responsible for the orphanage, also runs the crematoria, where starved children's corpses were disposed of with minimum oversight, often even before a death certificate had been filled out by the attending physician. In addition, officials of various Shanghai municipal agencies knowingly suppressed evidence of child abuse at the orphanage, persistently ignored the institute's high monthly death figures, and quashed an investigation into orphanage practices.
Observers that I have spoken to here charged that the phenomenally high death rates among China's abandoned children result from neglect and lack of medical training on the part of orphanage employees. Anecdotal evidence from foreign charity workers and adoptive parents has painted a grim picture of decrepit and poorly financed institutions run by demoralized and unskilled nursing staff. Many other children were given powerful drugs without any apparent medical justification, in order to control their behavior. I have now set up meetings with the United Nations Children's Fund (unicef) and established private children's charities from overseas to be granted access on a regular basis to all welfare institutions holding minors. These include administrative measures to strengthen the outside monitoring of children's treatment, as well as improvements in the selection, training and discipline of institute staff. I have together with unicef sent a letter to the Chinese authorities saying that they should promulgate strict rules prohibiting the abuse of children in welfare institutions, such as excessive corporal punishment, tying of children's limbs, medically unjustified use of drugs to control children's behavior, and all forms of paid or unpaid child labor. The ministry should also promulgate a formal disciplinary policy to be applied by institute management in cases of misconduct by junior staff and all staff at custodial welfare institutes should undertake a period of formal training, aimed at impressing on newly assigned employees that the protection of inmates' well-being is of paramount importance. Ordinary child-care workers should be trained in basic first-aid techniques, particularly to respond to cases of choking and accidental injuries, and in appropriate feeding methods for infants and small children, especially those with disabilities. Infants and small children should not be classified as 'mentally retarded' until they are old enough to undergo appropriate psychological tests. Training programs for child-care workers should emphasize the importance of individual care, attention and stimulation for infants' normal mental development.
The charities that are already working in China have a very dificult task. We have now secured the rights for four orphanages to receive food and adequate medical attention as well as equipment for development in eary child years..There is so much to do and the work goes on. I will be back in August to see how the funds are being used and to check on childrens welfare..I would like to help every child but unfortunately I can not and one is battling a communist regime where it is easier to lock someone up and throw away the key and forget about them . Also the curtailment of couples having children limited to two has to a certain extent helped..but also baby girls are shunned by their parents while boys are welcomed.
It is so sad to see what is happening to these very young children here
