Dear NPH Family

One Priest. Nine countries and 3425 children (2015).That's a lot of children to care for and we need YOUR help
Our mission is to provide homes in which the children receive food, clothing, health care and education in a family environment based on the principles of unconditional acceptance and love, sharing, work and responsibility.
Changing the world One child at a Time
We help through fundraising, sponsorship and volunteer efforts in conjunction with Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) Friends of the Orphans Canada has helped to support projects at the NPH homes in Latin America and the Caribbean. We facilitate sponsorships which provide direct financial assistance to the orphanage and enhance the childrens' lives with a loving connection outside the orphanage.
We also organize volunteer work projects, whereby Canadian volunteers have the opportunity to travel to one the growing orphanages for 1-2 weeks, living within the orphanage and assisting with a variety of available projects. Ever consider donating as a Christmas gift? You can send a loved one on a project to one of our homes, sponsor a child for one year, or make a straight donation toward one of our many projects within each home.
