Welcome to Heart for Children!

Our names are Henry and Annette Pool and we are 2 of the 5  founding directors of Heart for Children. We have been appointed as operating officers by the board for the day-to-day running of the office but please note that our activities for this charity are ‘Pro Deo’, i.e. we do not receive or ask any income from Heart for Children. Since 2018, we are both pensioners!

The goal of the Heart for Children Foundation is to give orphans, vulnerable and abandoned children, whose living conditions without caring parents are very difficult, a chance for a better life. This is done through the offering of shelter, food, clothing and education within a family created around the child. Please scroll further down to see a short promotional video from Heart for Children.
