Meritxell Children's World Foundation Inc. (MCW) provides
love and a caring environment for abandoned, neglected,
orphaned or abused children.
MCW is a secular, non-governmental, child-caring agency that
aspires to provide protective, nurturing and sheltering
homes for children. The children in MCW come from referrals
from government orphanages, institutions or hospitals. The
children it assists shall be provided with their fundamental
human rights in accordance with the tenets of the United
Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The founders and members of MCW do everything possible to
provide everything necessary for the children's survival.
They also accord the children's developmental rights that
will allow them to flourish into a happy, balanced, mature,
independent, Christ-like and loving human being.
MCW shall do everything necessary to integrate children with
their biological families, assuring them of family
counselling, livelihood assistance, financial support and
other basic survival necessities. However MCW shall not be
afraid to make the decision of the dissolution of parental
authority where a child finds no family support or is
abandoned. It is ready to step in as the parent obligated to
protect the child.
MCW's institutional shelters shall only be drop-in shelters
for temporary accommodations. Nevertheless, these temporary
homes shall provide the most nurturing environment for
children. As MCW is looking for a more permanent and secure
home for each child, the children will be under the care of
highly-trained and experienced childcare professionals,
under the constant supervision of MCW's pro-active founders.
In addition, MCW intends to actively monitor developments of
children in difficult circumstances - children in prison, in
trash mountains, in toxic environments, in orphanages, in
slum communities, in relief and evacuation centers, in
prostitution dens and brothels, disabled children and child
soldiers in rebel organizations. MCW shall evaluate these
circumstances and provide alternative solutions and
environments for these children.
