The most effective use of donations is ''where most needed,'' as it gives us the maximum flexibility to direct funds in accordance with current and most urgent needs across our international network. This is the default designation for every gift, unless the donor specifies other intent. We are committed to providing our orphans with quality medical care. We basic, yet vital, medicines and preventative care, and refer serious medical cases to local healthcare professionals. While many orphan ministries employ a child sponsorship model, God’s Kids invites you to look at each of our orphanages as a family unit and sponsor orphanages as a whole. This is a more cost-effective strategy, guaranteeing that 100% of donations go to the children. Help us fund teacher and administrator salaries, and provide orphans with the materials they need to succeed including uniforms, desks, computers and consumable learning materials. God's Kids provides funding for special projects and emergency relief when natural disasters affect our orphanages and their surrounding areas, such as Super Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. Maintaining homes and educational facilities used daily by dozens of children is a continual need. We fund regular maintenance, and new projects like water wells and indoor restrooms.
