The charity was founded in 1980 by Prolifics Testing CEO, Derrick Pereira with global locations now established in Asia, Australia, Canada, USA and Africa.
Most of the children HELP A POOR CHILD (HAPC) work with are deprived to an unimaginable degree, as there is no education, little food, endemic diseases, high levels of disability, parental rejection and working from as early as five years of age or begging/scavenging for their survival.
There is no help for them and no hope either, as children’s affairs have no priority.
Fundraising for HELP A POOR CHILD or any other charity is one of the most rewarding things you can do. For HAPC, the money you raise – whatever the amount – will make a real difference to children and fundraising itself can be as fun or as challenging as you want it to be. So if you are involved in any fundraising activities, please consider HELP A POOR CHILD.
Prolifics Testing has supported HELP A POOR CHILD’s construction of a village school in Gambia. Follow the story in the images below. If you can help or wish to get involved in any way, you can contact the charity directly.
