HELP Madagascar (Health, Education & Life-skills Projects) is a Christian non-profit, non-governmental organization assisting the Malagasy poor without regard to ethnic, religious or political persuasion. We work with the poorest of the poor in urban Toamasina (Tamatave) and the surrounding rural communities. HELP is considered a foster care center under the Malagasy system. We run a school canteen, subsidize medical & dental care, and provide counselling & educational services. Children can also be housed on an emergency basis for a limited amount of time — usually in cases of abuse or neglect.
(M)ay God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.” ~ a Franciscan benediction
