Mothers are wonderful!

Kenya Thursday, 24 March 2022

“As soon as I met Gracious and his brother, I knew that they were among the reasons I was at Open Arms. Everything I have gone through and everything I am, led me to this moment here to help these two boys heal. I know there is a reason why Gracious came to my house. I believe that God put us together” Mama Linet.

Transforming communities

Nepal Monday, 21 March 2022

After a visit home, Kabin found that his Dalit community were being blocked from the new well in the village, despite their legal right to use the government water supply. Kabin decided to tackle this injustice proactively. He spent his savings to fund another well in the village. This one is open and available to all who need fresh, clean water.

Caring for our children's feet

Monday, 28 February 2022

In January, we gave brand new shoes to all 4,250 children in our care! Our children can feel proud as they walk, run or skip to school, knowing their feet are safe and protected.

These shoes are life-changing for our children, whose families cannot afford to give shoes. Many children who recently joined our Stand by Me family, received their first-ever pair of shoes. Our other children now have shoes that fit, are comfortable and supportive.

Providing for our kids needs

Friday, 25 February 2022

We are proud to know each of our children, we take time to understand their needs and hopes. We invest our time, love and attention raising them to know they are loved and accepted for who they are. By knowing each of our children so well, we can provide for their specific needs.

Throughout the world, our projects are equipping our children with skills and resources they need to thrive.

One of our wonderful staff members, Jo, is sleeping on the floor this February, she explains her reasons why on her fundraising page

Giving up my bed for a week and asking for money are both out of my comfort zone. But February on the Floor is not about me, it's about the wonderful children who are part of Stand by Me's care.

Access to an education, always.

Myanmar, Friday, 03 December 2021

The last year has been exceptionally hard for our children in Myanmar. We believe they all deserve the opportunity to learn. We have purchased tablets to allow them to still have access to education despite the chaos around them. These tablets are a lifeline for our children's education.

Recently, a storm hit Colombia causing terrible flooding. Floods hit our Emmanuel Care Centre and many of our children’s houses. Thankfully everyone is safe, but there was a great deal of damage.
