Save The Children

Why Save the Children?

Our Mission

At BeaVan Charities Inc., our core mission is to tackle the critical challenges of malnutrition and abandonment facing children in Sierra Leone. In the shadows of a devastating civil war and the destructive Ebola outbreak, we've anchored our efforts in not just providing immediate relief but fostering a sustainable environment where every child can thrive, free from the pangs of hunger and the insecurity of abandonment.

Why Save the Children?

The question isn't just why, but how can we not? With every staggering statistic, such as the 34.1% of children under five being stunted due to malnutrition according to UNICEF, the need to act becomes more urgent. These aren't just numbers; they represent lives, potential, and futures cut short. Save the children means safeguarding the future of not just Sierra Leone but our global community.

Unique Challenges

Sierra Leone's children face a dire cocktail of challenges, from the scars left by a brutal civil war to the ravages of the Ebola virus. These events have not only strained the country's healthcare system but have also disrupted the very fabric of society, leaving the most vulnerable - our children - in peril.

Our Strategic Approach

Understanding that no single intervention can solve these deep-rooted issues, our strategy encompasses a holistic solution. From nourishing bodies with essential nutrients to kindling young minds through education and emotional support, our aim is to build a foundation from which children can grow, prosper, and eventually, lead the way forward.

Feeding Programs
  • Donation to children in dire need of nutritional support.
  • Implementing feeding programs that provide not just meals but a balanced diet essential for healthy development.
  • Specialized infant and pediatric nutrition initiatives focused on the crucial early stages of a child's growth.
Building a Home

We recognize that the fight against malnutrition and abandonment doesn't end with food and shelter. It's about creating a place that feels like home - safe, secure, and filled with love and opportunities for learning and growth. Through our efforts, we aim to restore hope and provide a stepping stone towards a brighter future for these children.

Impact and Transformation

Every child we reach is a victory in the battle against malnutrition and abandonment. By providing meals, education, and emotional support, we're not just saving lives; we're building futures. Our programs are designed to empower children, giving them the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty and malnutrition.

Real-Life Stories

Take Mariatu, for example, a young girl who, before coming to our program, had never attended school due to her family's situation. Today, she's not only catching up on her education but is also thriving, both physically and emotionally. Her story is just one of many that fuel our passion and dedication to this cause.
