Our destitution project
In April last year we sent you an emergency appeal about our project based in Birmingham which supports hundreds of destitute families with young children who are facing hunger and extreme poverty.
The project is all about meeting basic needs. The children need to learn how to play and the families need food, warmth, medicine and a safe place to be.
In just one year, with your help, The Children’s Society has supported over 264 destitute children and their parents, and 23 pregnant women.
