June 2012 – Fundación Allen Graham Charity 4 Kidz – Mallorca (Spain)
The Allen Graham Charity 4 Kidz is dedicated to helping disadvantaged children and young adults in Mallorca (Spain) who, through no fault of their own, do not have the opportunity to develop the skills that ensure a secure and safe future.
Every year in Mallorca hundreds of children of all nationalities, colour and creed, are either fostered by families or cared for in one of the 27 residential centres on the island. They have been abandoned, badly treated, abused or, for various reasons, have parents who are unable to care for them.
We provide homes and life skills for those who have been in care homes for most of their lives and suddenly, at the age of 18, have nowhere to go. Our aim is to assist them develop in such a way as to be able to achieve the things they want in life. Just like their contemporaries in “normal families”, they need to feel they have a future, one that is full of opportunities, hope and happiness.
The Allen Graham Charity 4 Kidz supplements its work with children in care in Mallorca in two related ways:
- It provides food parcels and clothing to support the children of local families who are going through difficult times.
- Emergency grants to families with children in Mallorca who are in temporary difficulties, waiting for benefits or payments to come through.
