Review for CHAR FASSON CHILDRENS FUND , Saint Petersburg, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is not often that you come across an organization that works so tirelessly for others.

This children's home, founded in 1972, provides a home for up to 100 homeless and abandoned boys. No boy is turned away. These boys are fed, clothed, educated and emotionally supported to help them break the cycle of poverty and to give them hope, focus and direction for the future.

With only two full time staff on meagre wages ($35 a month) all funds go into the boys welfare.

They are taught to fish, farm, sew and cook so that they have a livelihood and independence. Boys that leave the home at adulthood are encouraged to come back and help the little ones.

Fundraisers from around the world are sought as there is still so much to do.

Future plans involve a home for girls.

More information, contact details, and photos about this home and how you can become involved can be found on: www.causes.com & http://charfassonchildrensfund.org & also a Facebook page.
