We enroll and support orphans from extremely poor and hard to reach regions of the world. The monthly cash allowance is used to support the food, clothing, education and health needs of the orphans. We also ensure that orphans and their families benefit from Response USA’s ongoing development programs in their respective communities.
We provide crucial psychosocial support for children during emergencies to help them overcome their difficult experiences. These efforts include one to one counselling and group therapy sessions for helping them overcome the challenges and stress resulting from the disaster or conflict. Other interventions include safe and stimulating activities such as sports and games to develop life skills and coping mechanisms for achieving resiliency.
We build the capacity of community members, activists to support children, families and neighbors by disseminating key information through a variety of channels including the media, religious organizations, existing community structures and youth groups.
