For the Love of a Child is a Christian charity bringing healing, hope and freedom to children and their families whose lives have been broken through trauma, loss and bereavement. We work in Scotland and overseas.
For the Love of a Child was founded in 2010 by Tom and Donna Jennings following the tragic death of their little boy Samuel. Sam died suddenly at just five years old from heart failure whilst happily playing at a fruit farm. This tragedy was the catalyst for Tom and Donna to look for ways to bring hope and love into the lives of children who have none.
Our projects and programmes are developed with an emphasis on the emotional and mental health and well-being of children and their families and our current focus is on establishing a project in Lebanon, on the border of Syria, for Syrian refugees.
This project will provide a safe therapeutic space for children and their families to process their trauma through play, art, music, stories and drama.
