Children of Bahia is a charity dedicated to fighting child poverty in the state of Bahia, one of the most deprived areas of Brazil. We raise funds to support local child care and community projects and currently help over two hundred children with shelter, food, medical care, education and the support they so desperately need. We rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters.
COB work on several fronts: Reactionary care: Feeding many children, providing medical support, tackling homelessness.
Preventative care: Working with mothers, families and local projects to improve sanitation, healthcare, nutrition, and education. To improve the life, education and future prospects for very poor or homeless children and at risk families.
Palliative care: Particularly through project IBCM which works with many children & mothers who have HIV/AIDS.
All our UK & US staff are un-paid volunteers and over 95% of all donations get to Brazil to help the children directly.
