Longer Stays. Fewer Caregivers. Increased Isolation. Lack of Physical Touch.
Children living in orphanages during COVID-19 are facing more challenges than ever. The best long-term solution for children without family support is to receive the love and attention of someone who cares about them.
Your support will ensure that a child has a caregiver Granny to provide them with that one-on-one attention and care, during and after the pandemic. Spence-Chapin’s Granny Program pairs children without family support with a Granny—a woman from the local community who receives training in child development—who can offer support to children of all ages as they await their forever families.
You can ensure that throughout the pandemic and after, children have someone they can count on.
Join us on May 4th for a virtual event, A Granny’s Love: Supporting Children in Orphanages During Covid-19. Hear from health professionals and child advocates on the impact the pandemic is having on all children, and the particular challenges that children in orphanages face. The event will highlight the incredible impact that the Granny Program is having on children during the pandemic, and how your support can bring a Granny to more children around the world.
All proceeds raised at the event go to help support and expand the Spence-Chapin Granny Program.
