NPH USA Team
St. John & St. Paul Catholic Collaborative (Wellesley)

St. John - St. Paul Catholic Collaborative in Wellesley has been a part of the NPH family since 2017 when the NPH Pequeno tour visited our parish community. The children need our help now more than ever. Their sustainable sources of funding remain weakened and they are still living on a ‘survive and thrive’ budget. Now more than ever, the children are counting on those who have met them, to remember them.

IMPACT

Unlike any other moment in our lifetime, the Covid-19 Pandemic upturned our lives and our understanding of the world. Globally, we all struggled each day to protect our families and loved ones from the novel virus. The immense effects came quickly, and continue to persist. Parents lost jobs. Schoolmates were separated from friends and their teachers. Community resources were shuttered, leaving individuals feeling alone. Friends and loved ones fell ill. And in our pursuit of safety during the pandemic, many of us were forced into a bubble of isolation, focusing on the survival of our own families while worrying over the state of the world.

But unlike in the U.S., the countries where our NPH Homes reside didn’t have the benefits of government subsidies, local nonprofits, or food pantries to help them survive. Our NPH Homes depend on the generosity of donors. Yet each of our donors was also feeling the overwhelming impacts of the pandemic. During that same time, we had to cancel all our fundraising events and postpone our international trips as Covid-19 restrictions swept across the globe. With both direct donations and our primary sources of sustainable revenue (global events and international trips) being diminished, it’s understandable that our NPH Homes were faced with a $2M budget deficit. NPH’s survival, similar to our own, came down to cutting any expense beyond meeting a child’s most basic level of needs. This meant that even our core programs, dedicated to lifting children from poverty, were eliminated just so we could focus on keeping our pequeños safe, fed, and loved.

However, the world has yet to return to normal. Borders remain closed and sizable events are still restricted, which means our sustainable sources of funding remain weakened. Without the opportunity for supporters to visit our NPH homes, or NPH pequeños to travel to share their stories, our pequeños remain isolated and without a voice. Now more than ever, the children are counting on anyone in this world who has met them, to remember them.
