Mission Statement


Hearts of Gold Children's Hospice supports physically and mentally abandoned children suffering from life- threatenening and life-limiting medical conditions. Our mission is to be leaders in our field and to continue to render quality service to our special children irrespective of their disabilities.

Description


Hearts of Gold Children's Hospice is Nigeria's only Hospice for children. The Hospice caters for 39 abandoned children suffering from various types of physical and mental disabilities. Some of our children were born with severe congenital abnormalities. Because of lack of resources and acute economic problems in Nigeria, parents of these children readily abandon these children. Stigmatization is also a major cause of abandonment. It is also regarded a taboo and bad omen for parents to keep these children at home as they believe it will give them bad luck. Hearts of Gold is a Christian Hospice and we believe that every human being deserve to be loved because that is what God ask of us. We believe strongly that God made us in His own image.
