UK Charity 1091792

The Children of Bahia" is a small UK charity that has been set up to support street children in the state of Bahia in Brazil, and in particular homeless and impoverished children in and around the city of Salvador. One by one, we're trying to get children off the streets and into a loving home. Here are some of the projects we support.

The Wednesday Club - URGENT APPEAL!!

Early on Wednesday mornings a buss travels around the city of Salvador picking up street kids to go to the Wednesday Club. The kids call it "The Happy Bus" - and by the time it reaches it's destination it is packed full of children looking forward to a day of fun, play, good food, a shower, medical care, safety & love. For one day they can relax and be children, play, get taken care of, and when they leave they will be clutching a "Happy Bag" of food "for tomorrow". Find out more...

Other Projects

We support several other projects including education development programs. We also support 12 children and several families directly - we will post more details soon on this - This site is a bit under construction but we will develop it further and bring you more news on all the projects soon!! (This written Jan 2009).

The more funds we can raise the more children we can support.

Please help if you can!
