Basic Life

Thorpe 4.16 title

Hope's Heart desires for all orphans to have their basic needs met.  These include food, clothing, shelter, and attention to their special and growing needs.


Affording children the opportunity to live with a family rather than being institutionalized.  Everyday life lessons are learned in addition to experiencing bonding, attachment and family dynamics.


Nutrition programs provide quality fortified formula for at-risk babies whose bodies require added nutrition to thrive.  Nutritional foods strengthen little ones preparing for or recovering from surgery and  children whose health is compromised because of inadequate nourishment.


Tender care by specially trained nannies creates an environment for medically fragile babies to grow, heal and thrive.  Conditions such as prematurity, failure-to-thrive, or pre and post op care are addressed.


Supplying basic necessities that support daily care such as bottles, clothing, diapers, winter coats, cribs, etc.
