Our Founder Keith Gilabert created Children's Humanitarian Aid because we live in a world of excess and waste. UNICEF estimates that over 50 million children worldwide will require some form of humanitarian assistance as a result of conflicts and natural disasters. We as a society seem to value our material possessions more than the plight of our helpless and silent victims. This materialistic focus will never satisfy your inner needs. There is more affluence now than in the history of civilization. Yet we also have more poverty, conflict and neglect. We seem to be conquering the world with our technological advances but at the same time we are creating and encountering new threats, such as pollution, disease and violence. Through our foundation we strive to find the balance of productivity and harmony.
Keith Gilabert Foundation has been focusing their efforts on helping victims of abuse. Through the process of giving, we not only help others but we also help ourselves. The world has become a smaller place because of technology but we have also lost a sense of connection. When you give to your fellow person in need you are making a change in a childs future. Many children of abuse are often at a cross-roads and your gift could be the tipping point where they get back on the right track.
Keith Gilabert Believes one caring response to one child in the crisis of poverty, with a donation of one new piece of clothing, a pair of shoes, a toy or book of their own. It is so simple to give one gift, to one child at a time that builds hope, self-esteem and an opportunity to succeed.
We are working for a brighter future for our children,
Child Protection: Children’s Aid fights for children’s right to protection. We work closely with local communities, religious leaders, parents, teachers and the government to create and help maintain measures and structures that can prevent and respond to abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence affecting children.
Health: Children’s Aid works with families, communities and health care workers in homes, health posts, clinics and hospitals to promote basic health, well-being and survival, particularly for children under age 5 and for women of childbearing age. In addition to government healthcare leaders and administrators, we train and support community health workers living in some of the poorest areas.
Education: For many children, being beaten and humiliated is a daily reality. Many third world countries still legally permit teachers to physically punish children. Children’s Aid works to change that and to provide successful models of violence-free schools that can be used all over the country.
