You’re amazing!

You’ve committed to giving healinghugs to one of the world’s most vulnerable kids, and we want you to be part of a community that hugs you back – at least a little.

Throughout the year, we’ll send plenty of information your way, about your hugged child and his or her country, care centre, care team…

If you’re looking for a one-stop info shop, though, this is your place.
