Helping Hands Newsletter 2016 #1

“When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments; tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become.” Louis Pasteur

It is with the same sentiments that we endeavor to provide our children with the best care that we can give, knowing that all of them have the potential to be a positive influence in the society they live in.

We thank everyone who has been very faithful and generous in supporting Helping Hands in all its projects, and we know that together, we can take hold of the great promises that the future has for our children.
