Dear Friends,

The team and families of Partnership for Every Child are thrilled to count you among our supporters! Partnership for Every Child envisions a world in which every child lives in a safe and loving family which is supported to meet the childs' needs and develop the the childs' abilities and potential. This is our vision, but we need the support and partnership of people like you to help us achieve this!

Our Short Breaks programme matches families with children to caring temporary foster families who offer love, affection and a home at a time when their parents most need respite.  Your contribution to this programme made a real difference in the lives of families and children in need. With your assistance, the Short Breaks programme services were expanded to include 123 children from 101 families, with 75 families using the Short Breaks therapeutic serivces on a regular basis. In the last month of 2012 our GlobalGiving campaign raised $5,140 USD which enabled us to expand respite care services to 20 more children in need!

We will keep you informed of our progress on a regular basis and are so pleased to count you among those who want to help families in crisis stay together!

With friendship and thanks!
