Started in 2008, Meritxell Children’s World Foundation is providing a caring and nurturing environment for abandoned, neglected and orphaned children. However, in the midst of community lockdowns in the Philippines, their supply of food and other household items have slowly diminished.

4. Amitabha Malaysia Old Folks Home and Orphanage | Malaysia
Founded in 1998, Amitabha Malaysia have long uphold their motto “help the needy and relieve the distressed.” They do so by opening their orphanage regardless of religious beliefs, ethnics and races. As the Movement Control Order (MCO) is being implemented all over Malaysia, the 22 children residing in the orphanage are in dire need of help as donations have been halted to support them. The orphanage is now running low on daily necessities and face masks or PPEs for their staff.
Global Relief Fund for Orphanages will be raising funds for the above-mentioned organizations. The above list will continue to be updated from time-to-time as more calls come from different organizations.
