This web page was established in October 2017 specifically to meet the cost of urgent and ongoing medical needs of the 3,600 children cared for by Stand by Me.
Stand by Me
Founded in 1995, Stand by Me rescues children from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention the kids need to thrive. Working in seven of the world’s poorest countries, from Nepal to Colombia to Ethiopia, Stand by Me takes care to understand and meet the children's individual needs, from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. They help them reach their potential and change their futures. Since the start Stand by Me has changed over 10,000 lives: just two examples are a street child called Wilton who has qualified as a surgeon and is now practicing locally in the Dominican Republic, another is Isha who is now a midwife in Nepal but all of the Stand by Me have the chance of a different future because of their amazing support.
