Kids Haven
Kids Haven is a shelter for street children like Kadi, whose own mother allowed men to rape her for money. Director Moira Simpson says, "All of our children have been abused. In fact, I think 95 percent have been sexually abused. We're trying to make a difference in their lives."

In addition to food and clothing, they receive something much more important and rare: therapy. "Most of the programs [at Kids Haven] are geared towards the children's self-esteem," Moira says. "Once their self-esteem is improved and they believe in themselves, they can become somebody."

And thanks to your generous donations, the Angel Network will be helping hundreds of children reclaim their lives and their spirits at Kids Haven.
