  • Emergency childrens medical fund - $25 or any amountERDO responds to childrens special or emergency medical needs every year.

    A gift to this fund helps us respond quickly when requests come for things like repairing broken bones, providing large and small surgeries, or treating severe cases of malaria. Anxious, the girl pictured here, is just one example of how this gift works. She received ear surgery in 2015 and is now able to hear.

    Uniform or backpacks - $60This is so important because in some areas, children cant attend school when they dont have a uniform. Other times, children need a new backpack to carry school supplies. This gift provides a brand-new uniform or a backpack to a child waiting for sponsorship in an ERDO ChildCARE Plus location.

    Fight the bite! Anti-Malaria Mosquito Nets - $10In countries like Malawi, malaria is the leading cause of death in children under the age of five. Purchasing a treated bed net ensures that a child will be better protected, more comfortable and not bitten by malaria-carrying mosquitoes while he or she sleeps. These life-saving nets will be distributed to children in need. A supply of nets is also needed for other countries during times of flooding where malaria risk is high. For example, 600 mosquito nets were distributed through our partner in Malawi in 2015, for physically challenged boys and girls.

    Chickens - $12 for a hen & roosterThis gift can help people in Zambia and Zimbabwe in two ways; the chickens can be raised as a part of ERDOs agriculture program and the eggs sold for profit, or raised and eaten, providing a source of protein for a whole family. The cost includes all the needed materials to raise the chickens, like feed, vaccines, heat and lights.

    Goats - $80*Through the match, your gift provides 4 goats!
