St Joseph's Children Home

From Moamenla Jamir, Founder/Director of Mother's Hope (edited for clarity):

"Dear Sheer, St. Joseph's Children Home is an orphanage run by a Catholic Father. Most of the children here are orphans, or from a single parent home.  

As you can see the girls were ready for these bras...what a blessing!"

About the charities:

 

 Hagar International’s program in Vietnam serves women who are survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence. These issues are prevalent throughout the country and although there is a growing awareness of their magnitude, the lack of services for survivors is severe. In Vietnam, Hagar takes a capacity building approach, working alongside government partner, the Women’s Union and other organizations. Through personal development workshops, art therapy, and case management services Hagar provides long-term support for some of Vietnam’s most traumatized and abused women. In addition, women in Hagar Vietnam’s care gain practical skills, employment opportunities, and independence through Hagar and Hagar’s enterprise partner, Joma Bakery Café. Generous donations of gently used bras are vital to helping survivors achieve the confidence and professional image they need to be successful in job interviews and job opportunities.

 

Vision First in Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong supports over 500 refugee members irrespective of religion, race, nationality, social group or political opinion. Almost half of the members are women, arriving to Hong Kong as refugees forced to leave war-stricken countries such as Somalia, Sri Lanka, Africa, Iran, and Afghanistan, and allowed to bring only a small bag of personal belongings. Having suffering atrocities at home in addition to poverty, malnutrition, and separation from family, Vision First aids in efforts to provide basic needs for asylum seekers to rebuild their lives.

 

Mother’s Hope in India’s Northeastern Nagaland state work to provide unconditional love and care to under-aged pregnant girls undergoing crisis pregnancies.  The girls, many victims of sexual abuse and HIV, seek shelter at Mother’s Hope in their short stay home. The organization also aids women from economically challenged backgrounds living in five nearby villages. Mother’s Hope provides basic medical services and baby services for newborns and infants needing permanent homes.

 

AFESIP in Cambodia cares for those victimized by trafficking and sex slavery. AFESIP aims to successfully rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate survivors into the community through financial independence in a sustainable and innovative manner. Young survivors typically spend a few months at AFESIP’s rehabilitation center and have no personal belongings.
