An update on COVID relief where Children Believe works

Find out how our supporters have made it possible to help nearly 600,000 people


This past year, as the pandemic has grown in scope, Children Believe and our local partners have been on the front lines in vulnerable communities around the world. We’re reassessing our program plans and reallocating funds to better support changing needs.

The focus shifted to four key areas of need. “Through prevention messaging and education, the provision of protection supplies and equipment, food rations and food packages given to those in greatest need, mental health supports and learning aids for children, we’ve helped children and families weather this global storm,” says Fred Witteveen, CEO at Children Believe.

And, although work is still underway, a lot has been accomplished. “I am so grateful, that through the generosity of Canadians, Children Believe has helped 572,000 people thus far during COVID-19,” adds Witteveen.

Sharing is caring:


Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60+ years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
