Bourne Relief currently supports:

 Brito Orphanages in Guatemala

Gifts of Love International purchased a plot of land in 2008 and are using it to house orphans and abused children placed with them by the courts. They now have three houses which will enable them to care for 70 children. We support the project with funds to help with the building work and for day-to-day expenses. Money raised through our sponsored events was used to pay for the installation of a commercial kitchen to feed the children and workers. The goal of the project is to build enough houses to provide homes for 150 children during the next five years so the funds raised will continue to be used for building projects

Bourne Family Project

We operate a family project from our premises in Kingswood, Bristol with a heart to serve our local community and to meet the needs of local families and individuals. We outwork this through adult counselling, play therapy and parenting courses. Play therapy helps children who have suffered from abuse or other difficulties, giving them the opportunity to express themselves and gain control of their world. The money raised from sponsored events is being used to fund an extra three play therapy sessions each week and money raised in 2016 will continue to be used to support the therapies we offer

Bristol Homeless Outreach

Through our project Bristol Homeless Outreach (BHO) a team of committed volunteers head to the streets of Bristol every 1st Wed of each month. We provide supplies of food and rough sleeping essentials such as sleeping bags, warm clothing and importantly give our time just to love, encourage and pray with our friends on the streets. Our work also involves signposting so that our friends are aware of services available for night shelter, medical attention, regular meals and all other essential support available through other local organisations.
