You can read more information about these miracles below:
1. Shoes for our children with special needs - NPH Honduras
In March eight new children with special needs arrived at our
home as they had nowhere else to go. These children arrived
without medical histories or personal information. Only one
child could speak and was able to share their names. From this
tragedy, a miracle has emerged. The children are now healthy,
happy and well-loved within the NPH family.
Give a miracle – Two pairs of shoes for
our children with special needs: $50
2. Annual field trip - NPH El Salvador
A miracle for any family on a tight budget is enjoying a special
recreational activity. Once a year we treat the kids to a special
field trip to a local water park.
Give a miracle – The water park trip for one child: $30
3. Braces for a child - NPH Mexico
A generous Kiwi donor has performed the miracle of helping his
sponsored child regain a beautiful smile through orthodontic
treatment. Many more of our young people are on the waiting
list to get braces.
Give a miracle - Full orthodontic care for one child: $500
4. Students in crisis - NPH Nicaragua
Nicaragua is in need of a miracle! Political instability since April
has resulted in mass protests, rising food and fuel prices as
well as disruption to employment and schooling. Many of our
community students are unable to come to school because of
safety concerns. We are providing extra support and supplies
to them during this time.
Give a miracle – One month’s support for a
community student affected by the crisis: $40
5. Healthy nutrition - NPH Bolivia
Our agricultural programme helps us to be sustainable and
provide essential nutritional needs for our children. We have rice
and yucca fields, livestock, milking cows, fruit and vegetable
gardens, as well as fish ponds. We have 5000 fish (which means
our kids eat fish once a fortnight!)
Give a miracle – Give a child healthy meals for
three weeks: $70
6. A dignified farewell - NPH Haiti
Miracles are much needed in Haiti, one of the poorest countries
in the world. Bodies are abandoned in the city’s morgue, on the
streets or at our NPH St Damien Paediatric Hospital.
Fr Rick Frechette and his team believe that treating the dead
with dignity will lead to better treatment of the living. NPH
provide a funeral and burial for 150 people every month.
Give a miracle - A dignified farewell: $100
7. Montessori education - NPH Guatemala
In a country where illiteracy is common, it’s a real miracle
that 80 of our students are benefitting from the Montessori
method. We believe that this is the best education we can offer
as it allows our children to act, love and think for themselves,
helping to develop their confidence and inner discipline.
Give a miracle: Montessori education for one classroom
for one week: $200
8. Community outreach - NPH Dominican Republic
Just outside the gates of our children’s home there is a
community which has very poor infrastructure and little access
to healthcare and education. Our outreach programmes provide
miracles to these families. The focus is on community health
talks, check-ups, literacy courses for illiterate adults,
after-school activities, construction and social work.
Give a miracle – A health check-up for a
family in need: $15
9. First female university graduate - NPH Peru
We are proud to celebrate the first female university graduate
from NPH Peru this year. Milagros (which means miracles) has
graduated with a commerce degree and dreams of running her
own business one day. We currently have over 400 students at
universities across Latin America.
Give a miracle – Support one university student
for one month: $140
10. Christmas gift for a child
There is nothing sweeter than the miracle of a child’s smile
on Christmas day as they open up a present. For some of the
kids who have recently joined our family this may be the first
present they’ve ever received.
Give a miracle - A Christmas present for one child: $30
