HOW TO DONATE


Child Aid Foundation is the only hope for many underprivileged, disadvantaged, and unfortunate children. Before coming under Child Aid's care, these children were without hope, and destined to become child laborers, or street children, or even juvenile delinquents! There is a heart breaking story behind every one of them. Now, however, these children are in the safe, caring, and loving hands of C.A.F. and you the donors.
