Did you know that New Jerusalem Children’s Home – NJCH, has a total of 92 beneficiaries, aged 0 to 18, who are permanently cared for by the dedicated and passionate child and youth care workers, within the walls of New Jerusalem Children’s Home – yep, 24 hours, 7 days a week and 365 days a year?

There is nothing more difficult than asking, as much as it is been said that “ask and it shall be given to you” it is hard to ask for money, it doesn’t matter who you are asking it from, think of a visit to a bank and applying for a loan, it is a bit embarrassing even though you are going to repay it over a certain period time, with interest even.
Over the past months, New Jerusalem Children’s Home has been sharing with you, keeping you updated and making financial support request towards a school building project, which is currently under construction with about 85% of its construction phases completed.

The success and a reason for being of every children’s home – is its ability to better lives of the children, the success of New Jerusalem Children’s Home and any other organisation doing the similar work – is simple to see children become self-sufficient, economically enabled and standing on their own, putting a bread on their table by themselves”
Dear Friend of the Children/Youth and New Jerusalem Children’s Home (NJCH)
We thank you for your interest and support for the Children/Youth of NJCH. Our core reason for being is to serve the physical, educational, health and psychological needs of each Individual Child under our care. We have been rendering this service since year 2000.
It is sad… and it hurts to see the rapid decline in financial support towards the orphanages/Child and Youth Care Centre – charity organizations that offers much needed child and youth care residential services.
