Support an Orphan

SCEAD Foundation has adopted St. Gasper's Children House, which is home to many orphans. In order to educate and provide for these orphans, the home is in need of funds. Adopting an orphan will go a long way in helping them and improving their lives by giving them the gift of education.

Listed below are details of a few orphans who need support to continue their education. If you are interested in adopting an orphan, write to us at sceadfoundation@gmail.com for more information.

After his father was sentenced to 12 years in prison, he started living with his relatives, but his life with them was very miserable (3 of his uncles are in prison as well).
