Caring for women and babies 

When a woman in Indonesia becomes pregnant outside of marriage, she is often rejected from her family. Abortion is illegal in most situations there and yet the abortion rate is high. Women can suffer greatly following unsafe abortions. RUTH House offers women an alternative and supports them during and after their pregnancies. Since RUTH House was founded in 2011, founder Devi and her husband Charles, along with a team of caregivers, have helped hundreds of women through pregnancy and life with a new baby. 

The RUTH Foundation also offers care to babies and children without a family at “Sam House”. Under Indonesian law, children over the age of five are not able to be adopted. “Sam House” refers to Samuel of the Bible who was entrusted to other caregivers by his mother. This sends a powerful message to the children living there, that they are not abandoned. There are currently 15 children in residence at Sam House and being assisted to attend mainstream school or special needs schools. 

Your gift can show the love of Christ to mums and babies without hope, transforming their future.
