We send our love and heart-felt concern to you and your loved ones in these challenging times. We hope you are all remaining safe and well.

Child Haven has had to cancel nine of our Spring Fund-raising Dinners, which help us care for our children. We are a small organization running on a tight budget, without a surplus of funds we can call upon in this unprecedented situation. We are asking that, if you can, please make a special donation so we can maintain our Homes during this critical time. If you have already responded to our need for help at this time, thank-you very much!

Thankfully, at this writing all of our Homes and Women’s Projects remain free of Covid-19. They are practicing extra sanitation and limiting visitors. Elsewhere in India, Bangladesh and Nepal, millions of day labourers and homeless people are facing starvation as their work places close. This is on top of the looming threat from the virus itself. Many of our former students have asked us for help.

We will likely need to accept more children into our care as the virus extends.

If you are in a position to be able to help, it would be most appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you all in person when this crisis passes.

Bonnie, Fred, and Robin Cappuccino and Dr. Natubhai Shah

Please give what you are able to the children at Child Haven.
