Millions of African children are orphaned by HIV AIDS.An estimated 1 in 6 people between the ages of 15 and 50 are dying of HIV AIDS, leaving over 1.5 million children orphaned.

It is a tragic situation, but not hopeless because of the care and compassion of our work.

What Hands of Compassion is Doing

We provide free primary education to nearly 400 orphaned or vulnerable children, living in a large shanty compound, Chipulukusu, near Ndola in Zambia.

Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Giving hope to these children rather than see the heartache they live with daily, struggling and not knowing how they will survive. Living in houses that leak,  they are hungry, they have few clothes that are already torn, many don’t even have a blanket.

With your help …

Hands of Compassion can continue to provide education to orphaned or vulnerable children and nurture Christian values, enabling them to have a better quality of life and fulfil their potential.

But above all, to survive

The Rt Reverend Brian Castle, Bishop of Tonbridge

“In supporting Hands of Compassion, you will be bringing hope to many young people in Zambia,. Your expressions of care and concern will do far more than you can possibly imagine in transforming the lives of these young people and their potential for shaping their own future and that of their country. On their behalf, I say thank you.”
Past Patron, The Rt Rev Dr Brian Castle
