We care for children by meeting all their basic needs.
We strengthen the family to provide everything a child needs to grow.
We work with community leaders to provide important services for families.
We partner with governments to change systems and develop laws that help children thrive.
It takes systemic change to transform the way we care for children.
After seeing children on the streets of Moldova, Board Chairman and Founder Kevin Dinnin started Children's Emergency Relief International (CERI) to give all children the opportunity to grow in a loving family.
A Helping Hand
After a devastating tsunami hit Sri Lanka in 2004, we helped find loving homes for hundreds of children left without parents.
The HIV Epidemic
The HIV epidemic left millions of children orphaned in South Africa. CERI began a project to provide trauma counseling to orphans and their caregivers.
Advocating for Children
In 2016, we expanded to India by partnering with government to create laws that keep children safe in families. Today, our work of protecting children continues to expand to other countries.
In 2021, our focus shifted from preventing orphanhood to a more all-encompassing approach: protecting childhood. When we strengthen and support the family, we help children thrive.
