Mission Statement

Angel Covers is a volunteer run organization dedicated to caring for orphaned and destitute children around the world. We believe that each and every child deserves access to quality medical care, education, nutrition, and housing.

Description

Angel Covers believes that every child is invaluable and deserves to have their basic nutrition, housing, medical and educational needs met so they can grow into their potential.

Angel Covers believes that a holistic approach to meeting these needs will lead to long term self sufficiency in order to break the cycle of poverty.

We believe that Angel Covers can best accomplish its mission by developing and using an all volunteer force including its staff, board of directors and all others working on behalf of Angel Covers. All of those who work for Angel Covers do so not out of obligation, but because they have a deep and compelling interest in helping under privileged children.

At Angel Covers, we value the donations made by our supporters and seek to maximize the value of the funds entrusted to us. We actively seek to minimize overhead so that as much money as possible is used to directly care for the children in our programs and provide tangible benefits for those we serve. We are proud that since the founding of the organization at least 97% of our donations have directly benefited the children and programs with which we work.
