Helping Children Worldwide

Helping Children Worldwide Transforming communities by serving vulnerable children and families through education, health care and spiritual mentoring.​
Helping Children Worldwide (HCW) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that builds trusting relationships with mission sustaining partners and collaborates with international program partners to transform communities and tackle the greatest barriers to sustainable futures; poverty, disease, illiteracy and hopelessness. We partner with local leadership to strengthen communities in Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in the world, by supporting programs that provide vulnerable children and their families with opportunities for education, health care, and spiritual mentoring. Two of the programs HCW underwrites, the Child Rescue Centre (CRC) and Mercy Hospital are especially focused on education, family stability, maternal health, infant survival, and childhood nutrition. HCW provides financial underwriting, training, technical advice, long term and short term mission team support to Mercy Hospital and the CRC to provide life-changing care for thousands of children and their families.

Helping Children Worldwide supports the Child Rescue Centre and Mercy Hospital in Sierra Leone.

Mission: HCW is transforming communities by serving vulnerable children and families through education, health care and spiritual mentoring.​
