The Cause

At Hope and Homes for Children, we believe that all children need families, never orphanages.

Always families, never orphanages

As an international charity, we work across the globe to find loving family homes for children who would otherwise grow up in an orphanage, denied the love, care and protection that is so vital to us all.

With your support The Family Marathon will become a global beacon of hope for every child confined to an orphanage and in urgent need of a family. Get yourself sponsored so that every mile you run raises vital awareness and funding for Hope and Homes for Children.

Just £1,200 gives a child back their childhood

By raising just £1,200, in support of the vital work Hope and Homes for Children do around the world, you could help free a child from the confines of an orphanage and place them into a loving family. It really is that simple.

Every child deserves this and that's why we're in it for the long-run, until the day all children grow up in families, never orphanages.
