Helping Children Worldwide

Strengthens communities by serving vulnerable children and families. We work with local partners in Sierra Leone, including Child Rescue Centre and Mercy Hospital, focusing on education, family stability, mother and infant mortality and child malnutrition.

Helping Children Worldwide is a Christian organization committed to saving vulnerable children from disease, malnutrition, exploitation, illiteracy, and despair. Our multi-faceted approach impacts the lives of children and families through health care and education–two of the most critical factors in reducing poverty.

Helping-Children-Worldwide-leftIn Sierra Leone, one of the world’s poorest countries located on the coast of West Africa, families struggle for sustenance, health, and education. They struggle to survive. Helping Children Worldwide’s programs lift families up out of poverty and the struggle, resulting in a direct impact on nearly 10,000 people each year.

We are also concerned about child labor and trafficking in Sierra Leone. With our Sierra Leone partner Child Rescue Centre, we rescue children as young as four years old from dangerous, abusive, and neglectful situations. Children receive nutritious meals, health care, education, and professional trauma and behavioral health treatment.

Helping Children Worldwide also works to achieve a measurable and sustainable decrease in infant and maternal mortality rates in Sierra Leone through our work at Sierra Leone’s Mercy Hospital. Mercy Hospital provides holistic, community focused care, regardless of ability to pay. Mercy’s reach extends beyond the hospital and into the surrounding villages through community based outreach and education programs.
