With a father in jail and a missing mother, Grace and Jems ended up in a child care facility in Silang, Cavite (Philippines). A history of family abuse fueled by alcohol has left these children broken... We will start the process of rebuilding their lives, filling them with love and acceptance, caring for them, educating them and most importantly, just being there for the long road ahead.
With dozens of worthwhile childrens charities in New Zealand, it can be difficult to choose which one is right for you.
Actually making the commitment to donate to starving children or abused children, or those in need of medical treatment is the most important factor in all of this. Which kids charity organisation you decide to sponsor is the easy part.
As part of the Ruel Foundation's charitable organization framework, we work extremely hard to provide the necessary surgery and support required for children suffering from cleft lip and palate, among other conditions.
Cleft lip and palate are birth defects where there is an opening in the lip and/or palate (roof of the mouth), typically caused by incomplete development during early foetal formation process. Normally the tissues that form the lip and palate fuse together in the second and third months of pregnancy, however in babies with cleft lip and cleft palate, this fusion process never takes place or only occurs partially, leaving an opening (cleft).
