It costs MCCH approximately 50 CAD/month to provide food, housing, education and other basic necessities for a child in primary school and approximately 100 CAD/month to provide the same for a student in high school. Offer whatever you feel you can give!
Ideally your sponsorship will continue until the student has completed high school. Further sponsorship to help them attend college or receive technical training would also be wonderful. However, we do acknowledge that financial situations may change and we are flexible to accommodate whatever works for you.
You can send post-dated cheques to our treasurer, use pre-authorized debit or use a credit card. You can choose to pay monthly, quarterly or yearly.
Yes, Mercy and Caring Children's Home is a registered Canadian charity and issues income tax receipts each January.
Of course! We encourage you to stay in contact with your sponsor child and to build a relationship with them. We try to organize responses from the children approximately every six months.
Approximately 95% of all donations go directly to supporting your child. This includes food, clothing, shelter, education and paying the Kenyan staff at MCCH. The remaining 5% is used to cover administrative costs in Canada. MCCH's Canadian board of directors is completely volunteer and any travel to Kenya is covered by the individual.
