    Why we need help

    8 Years of civil war has left child victims. The child survivors have lost parents and homes to the horrors of war. Some children fought as soldiers, losing their childhood, brainwashed into killing and violence. Many cannot read or write and have little chance of having a stable future.

Who Is Behind BIH?

Miss Susan Benjamin

Established the Charity.

The Every Child Organisation (ECO, 2004) states that for children to achieve, five stages are to be met: “keeping Safe, Staying Healthy, Enjoying , and also Achieving economic well-being whilst contributing to society and the world they live in”. We believe in equipping the child for the future, according to the saying “give a man a fish and feed him for a day, but teach him how to fish in order to feed himself for a life time”

AIM ONE: EDUCATE.

To raise children with good moral values and principles.

To help them become good independent and law abiding citizens in their communities. It is our intention to nurture and care for the children’s well being. We believe that children are the future and therefore if we invest and provide them with the best, it sure will enhance their quality of life and provide them with a better understanding and knowledge of the world.

AIM TWO: ACCOMMODATION.

Give these children a sense of belonging.

A place they can call home, feel safe and secure. As we believe in the significance of the family and therefore, we believe every child should be part of a safe loving family environment. Research shows that children who grow up without love and care tend not to develop to their full potential. It is for this purpose, that Bethany International House for Children has acquired 5acres of land in Waterloo village in which we intend to start the process of building a school and an orphanage that will house children from age zero and above.

AIM THREE: ESSENTIALS.

Providing basic necessities such as food, clothing, healthcare and shelter.

To add, in relation to providing the very basics for the children, it is also our aim to set up facilities such as: a primary school, a nursery, an orphanage for children of war victims and a health clinic.
