WHAT WE PROVIDE:
For each child that comes through our doors, KCH provides secure housing, a nutritious and well-balanced diet, clothing, immunization and all medical attention needed, complete education, a loving environment where children learn discipline and respect for themselves and others, and the opportunity to grow spiritually
Children who, for no reason of their own, are not able to be cared for by their parents or family members. Children who are abandoned, abused, neglected or orphaned. Children who are in dangerous conditions, either self-imposed or inflicted by others.
KCH is one of the very few such institutions in Belize, and is unique in that it was started in August of 1985 by then Miss Leonie Herrera, a dedicated lady with a dream. Mrs. Herrera-Gillham is a committed Christian, and her Home is run based on Christian principles, compassion, love and sensitivity.
Over the years the home has physically expanded, with hundreds of children passing through its doors. KCH is a mission of faith, with God as the head and all other staff as workers for Him. The children are all taught to think of themselves as princes and princesses, as they are the children of the King of kings.
Presently, there are over 80 children in the home, ranging in ages from newborns to 20 year olds.
