Mission Statement

Friends of the Orphans is the American fundraising organization for Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos International (NPH) Spanish for Our Little Brothers & Sisters . Together we have opened orphanages in nine developing countries, as well as a free-of-cost hospital in Port-au-Prince , Haiti , the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere . Friends of the Orphans aims to get Americans involved in supporting the orphanages, allow the children to grow up in their domestic culture, and to remain with any existing family, despite the family's inability to provide financial support. Since the founding of NPH, hundreds of staff, volunteers and generous Friends have helped provide loving and stable homes to over 15,000 children. Today, thousands of these pequeños are now self-sufficient adults with families of their own. NPH outreach programs, including hospitals and clinics, serve over 30,000 adults and children each year.

About Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos International (NPH) - NPH has been in existence for over 50 years, operating orphanages in Latin America and the Caribbean . With the help of their European, Canadian, and American funding, NPH is currently supporting 3,000 children in Bolivia , the Dominican Republic , El Salvador , Mexico , Guatemala , Haiti , Honduras , Nicaragua , and Peru . NPH provides children with an alternative to poverty and international adoption. In each of its nine countries, NPH works to provide a safe, secure loving home for children who have nowhere else to go. These children live healthy family lives, learning household chores, taking care of each other and receiving an education and learning a vocation, while remaining within their own culture.
