The bridge provides monthly financial resources to help a survivor of child abuse in Jaffna receive residential or non-residential therapeutic care and legal support at a child-safe space conducive to their recovery.

Kenisha Paradys - Dominican Republic

Kenisha is serving in Domincan Republic with Christian Hope Community Association. CHCA has been and continues to advocate for the children of this community to receive an education and take advantage of opportunities that weren’t afforded to their parents. To-date, there are now 56 students enrolled. Through the prayers, and financial support of sponsors and donors, and the dedication of CHCA’s passionate staff, this community has come to see the tangible difference in the lives of the children who were previously enrolled in ECC school; kids who could not read or write have gone on to pursue Secondary schooling, something that is a rarity in Barahona.
