Family Preservation Efforts

families in front of humble homes

We believe that every child on earth deserves a permanent, caring family of his or her own. Investing in family preservation is an essential step in preventing children from becoming orphaned. To that end, we work with local communities to identify impoverished children at risk of abandonment or neglect. By providing support through several key initiatives, we can empower loving families to stay together.

You can make a difference in the life of a vulnerable child by supporting our family preservation efforts in one of the following areas:

  • Unity Initiative
  • Emergency food relief
  • Home builds
  • Income-generating projects

See sponsorship opportunities below

Unity Initiative

LWB provides medical care for children from impoverished families through our Unity Initiative. One of the goals of this program is to help prevent future abandonment by desperate families who have no way to provide the medical care their children need. Donate

Home builds

For many mothers already living in poverty, the death of a husband or abandonment by a spouse can leave a family completely destitute. LWB identifies vulnerable single parents and children and provides them with a safe, permanent home of their very own. A new home in many rural locations where we work can be built for under $8,000. Contact us if you are interested in supporting this family preservation effort.

Emergency food relief

In response to the mounting challenges created by the COVID-19 crisis, LWB is working to ensure that as many vulnerable children as possible won’t go hungry. For impoverished families around the world, without the few dollars earned each day from day laborer income, they now have no ability to provide life-sustaining food to their children. LWB is committed to help these at-risk families who don’t have anyone else to rely upon by delivering essential food items, such as large bags of rice and beans, to as many children and their families as possible. Donate

Income-generating projects

In an effort to reduce the vulnerability of single mothers and their children, LWB provides funding for small scale projects such as livestock or store kiosks, empowering them to create sustainable, long-term support for their families. Contact us if you are interested in supporting an income-generating project.
