What is Ora Kinderhilfe?We have been committed to helping children and families in need since 1981. We are currently active as a Christian relief organization in ten countries and ensure that children are adequately fed, sufficiently clothed, medically cared for and can attend school regularly. We provide the necessary basic care and thus invest in the future of the children. With sufficient nutrition, a healthy upbringing and regular access to education, they can one day provide for themselves and overcome poverty. In order to help the parents as well, we support income-generating activities and offer seminars and trainings that help the parents to lead their lives self-sufficiently. This is how we engage in development cooperation.We are also involved in disaster relief. We provide fast and uncomplicated help with the essentials of life when people are faced with great misery from one moment to the next. We distribute food, clothing, medicine and hygiene packages and carry out reconstruction work wherever we can through further cooperation. We always aim at improving the lives of children and ensuring that people can provide for themselves in dignity. Every human being has inalienable dignity. We are as convinced of this as we are of the idea that God called every human being into existence, loves them and considers them valuable. This premise guides us in ensuring a prospective future for the people we work with.How does Ora Kinderhilfe provide help?First of all, very concretely: food, clothing and school materials. We build schools, health clinics, and finance teachers and medical staff. We help refugees and victims of natural disasters. We attach particular importance to ensuring that children grow up in a supportive environment. For this reason, our aid does not focus solely on the child, but also on his or her family, village and region. Accordingly, we are promoting income-generating activities and improvements in village infrastructure. And we care for the elderly, who are also part of a healthy family.Why can you trust Ora Kinderhilfe?Of course, we want you to trust us. To gain and retain your trust, we attach great importance to being transparent in the way we handle the funds entrusted to us. In our annual report, you will find all further information and the exact figures from the last fiscal year in each case. Our income and expenditure, our balance sheets and transactions are regularly checked by the tax office, the German Central Institute for Social Issues (DZI) and an independent auditor. So far, nothing has ever been objected to, and our serious handling of money has been re-certified every year.The particularly responsible handling of donations is monitored in Germany by the seal of the German Central Institute for Social Issues (DZI) and then confirmed.
