CHILD India Fundraiser

While we are not able to gather at a banquet hall for this year's fundraiser due to COVID, we are still going to have a fundraiser, just with a new look!

This year, CHILD board members and other supporters have decided to host small outdoor gatherings in August and September. We plan to share all the amazing things you have helped CHILD support in India through Metropolitan Mission over the recent years and go over what MM plans to do this year and how you can be a part of it.

Our goal this year is $50,000! We are planning to raise money for items such as:

Rice and protein to provide meals for the children and staff at the MM Children's Home and School for the year.
Items needed to meet COVID safety guidelines for the school and children's home (ex. cloth masks, sanitizers, and more desks to increase the distance between students).
There will be a special video presentation from
Dr. Anja Reuter who visited MM in India last November.

If you would like to attend one of these gatherings, or if you would like to host one, please contact us at childsocietyorg@gmail.com. If you are not comfortable attending a gathering but would still like to help MM, please donate on our website.

India Update: COVID Relief and Wells


Metropolitan Mission (MM) continues to hand out food and emergency supplies to hundreds in their region who would otherwise be starving due to COVID-19 and the depressed economy. So far CHILD has sent $30,000 towards this cause thanks to all those who have generously donated even during this trying time! And thanks to last year's fundraiser, the motor rickshaw that was purchased has been invaluable to the MM team, as it makes food and water deliveries in and around the city many times each week.

Currently, 10 wells are being drilled in rural Indian communities with little to no access to clean water thanks to overwhelming donor support this spring!

Haiti Update


In Haiti, the nutrition program continues to care for over 250 malnourished children. The need in Haiti is enormous. According to Lori at Haiti Children's Home, they have to make life and death decisions every day. Currently, there are many children that they would like to accept into the nutrition program, but due to a lack of resources, they are only able to accept the most high-risk cases. More support for Haiti would be greatly appreciated, as more support allows more children to enter the program which means more lives saved!

South Africa Update


CHILD is currently supporting 3 scholarship students at Alexandra High School in South Africa. Though schools have had to close for a time due to COVID, CHILD is still supporting their tuition costs so that they can return to school when the time comes.
