About Us

For the Love of a Child is a Christian charity and 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 and families who have also suffered with trauma and loss.

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 Sam’s House little friendly space in Lebanon.

We are in the early stages of developing the Big Heart Dundee project in Scotland which will be a multi-purpose venue that will offer a safe, therapeutic, creative and reflective space for children and their families who have suffered with loss and bereavement.

We are a Christian charity, and we follow Christs teaching to love our neighbour.  Our faith is what motivates us to support the broken-hearted, through compassion and creativity.

  • We believe everyone should be free form fear.  We believe the past does not define who you are, and that pain can be turned into a purpose of hope for a better future.

  • We stand together with the most vulnerable in times of crisis and for the longer term.

  • We respect differences and culture and aim to work together with children and their families to relieve suffering.
