In spite of the numerous efforts of governments and multi-national

organizations to address the deplorable situation of needy children, the

problem still persists and, at times, support fails to reach those

intended. In countries where this problem is most acute, charitable groups

have taken the initiative to set up projects to alleviate the day-to-day

living conditions of children – i.e., providing a safe and warm place to

accommodate street children, orphans and disabled children; ensuring

substantial meals and decent living conditions, setting up a school that

teaches children rudimentary reading and writing; dispensing medical

assistance to sick children, etc.


Throughout the years, guild members, in the course of their travels, have

been made aware of these initiatives. These projects are often times

bypassed in favor of the more established institutions that have to undergo

a lot of “red tape” to receive funding. The Guild channels its support to

these projects that work “hands-on” towards the immediate needs of the

children. Money is given directly to these projects and the guild monitors

their progress.
