Pcdc is a Tyneside-based charity dedicated to serving children in crisis in the Holy Land, regardless of race, creed or colour. We give financial, practical, and prayer-aid through our child-sponsorship scheme.
Whilst in the Holy Land in 1996, a number of Christian friends learned of the needs of some poor children they met. These were children who were orphaned, abandoned or sick, and in need of love and care.
Today, through the kindness and prayers of our supporters, seven trustees oversee the sponsoring of over 300 children from desperately impoverished backgrounds in the Holy Land.
SPONSORING A CHILD:
We can arrange for you to sponsor a child. This commitment may be not only of cash, but also of prayer.
You may have direct contact through letters, cards and/or small gifts, or indirectly via the Co-ordinator, who will provide you with photographs and a report of the child’s progress.
Great care is taken to ‘match’ each child with their sponsor.

"The relief of poverty, sickness and distress and the advancement of education of children under the age of 18 (or in exceptional circumstances young people over 18 but under 25) who are in necessitous circumstances and resident in the lands of the Bible"
