Guyana lies on the northern coast of South America, with Georgetown situated right along the East Coast Demerara region. This beautiful country houses an incredibly diverse population, with large ethnic groups originating from India, Africa, Europe, and China. Due to significant political and socio-economic issues, more than 200,000 children live in extreme poverty in Guyana. Without the safety net of an adequate foster care system, the country relies on orphanages like Bless the Children Home to keep children who have been abused or abandoned off the streets and in capable hands.
After pastoring a church in the United States for 17 years, Guyanese natives Surujnauth and Sheila Surujpaul felt the call to return to Guyana. In response to the crisis of orphaned and vulnerable children they saw in their country, they started Bless the Children Home in 2007. Most of the children in this home are social orphans, meaning that their parents either abandoned them completely or were proven unfit to raise them by law. The children in this home all have stories tainted by abuse, abandonment, or exploitation. The orphanage provides a loving home to many children who have experienced anything but love from their biological families.
Serving Orphans Worldwide travels to every orphanage we partner with to ensure needs are legitimate and 100% of funds distributed goes to the livelihood of the children.
This year, we have a goal to help improve the quality of care for these amazing children, and we need your help. Your gift will help provide education, a safe home, health, and adult mentors who can share the Love of Christ. Our promise to you is that 100% will go directly to the home.
