The Work We Do
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”.
IBCM – The people who run the Wednesday Club
IBCM have been working in Salvador for 18 years and they focus on preventive work and aid to impoverished people. Many who live with HIV/AIDS
Vovo Clara - Project Grandma Clara's Dream
This community child care centre”Grandma Clara’s Dream” is located in the neighborhood of Mata Escura, on the outskirts of the city of Salvador.
The objective of the centre is to provide children and adolescents in situations of extreme poverty with education and physical-social assistance, with the purpose of improving their physical and psychological development
IBCM (Instituto Benficiente Concição Macedo )
