The CID or Children In Distress program is committed to supporting these children until they are self-sufficient, we take care of their physical, educational, emotional and spiritual needs. In this way, we seek to break the cycle of poverty and desperation, by ensuring that these children grow up to make a positive contribution to their communities.
