Luca is one of the world’s forgotten. Where she lives, there have been no natural disasters, no droughts, no starvation ... nothing to bring her existence to the attention of the media and the world. Where Luca lives there is no drama, only a slow, gradual decline from the promise of birth to the sentence of lifetime impoverishment
Yet the life she faces is as horrifying in its own way as the sudden destruction of an earthquake. We must open our eyes. Children like Luca need you. Your monthly contribution through Foster Parents Plan can show a child and family that someone cares...can help them, and their community work toward a proud, self-reliant, meaningful life. You can help end the pain. It’s as simple as calling or w riting today.
We at Foster Parents Plan are proud of the handling of our funds. 87.9% of all contributions goes directly toward child and family material aid and services, with 6.3% used for administration costs, and 5.8% for promotion. We are non-profit, nonsectarian and non-political and we are officially registered as a Canadian Charitable Organization by the Federal Government (Reg. No. 0249896-09-13).
