How to understand the ‘Have a Heart Adoption’ program?
Taking part in one of our ‘Have a Heart Adoption’ programs, the benefactor undertakes a moral obligation to provide help to a particular child from Africa, known by name. The aim of ‘Have a Heart Adoption’ is to protect the poorest people from dying of hunger; secure the funds necessary for education, health care and preparation for living on their own. The sponsor will receive a file with description of living conditions and pictures of the child and will be able to exchange letters with him or her.
All the raised funds are transferred to the Polish missionaries working in sub-saharian Africa, who arrange direct distribution of help. In this way, almost 4000 children are being supported in the following countries: Rwanda, DR Congo, Burundi, Sudan, Madagascar, Cameroon, Togo and Ivory Coast. All the details concerning the process of help distribution are recorded and supervised. The program was launched in 1996 in Rwanda.
