Healing Hugs

Healing care for bodies and hearts

For $30 a month, you can provide preventative and medical care to a child living in poverty with a disability.

Give one of the poorest, most forgotten children in the world – like Esther – the healing care he or she needs to see, to walk, to hear or to thrive.

Medical Care plus A bear to hug equals Hope and Healing for a child

When you give a healinghug

Both you and the child you support will receive matching bears.

I couldn't imagine walking away from a child who could possibly live the rest of their life in pain – or struggling with a disability that could easily be fixed or managed. It's an exciting opportunity to be able to make a difference in a child's life.

Just went to the Danier sale to buy a jacket and realized I did not need another one and I am back to sponsor a child.
