Veronica's Story is a nonpartisan 501c(3) recognized organization under the articles of the IRS. We advocate for orphans and vulnerable children. We help educate and empower women and girls around the world. Veronica's Story has created a tradition of trust with a completely volunteer effort that began in a Washington, DC newsroom several years ago.
World Book Month is the perfect time to donate books to children in need and to encourage good reading habits, but our efforts can't stop there.
The need for quality reading skills continues year round. Below you can see one way funds are being used.
Above, children at a CARE facility and a local library receive their new books. All part of a donation of over 5000 new books made possible by Veronica's Story, First Book and African Diaspora for Change.
Thank you to our generous supporters. Without you, this donation would not have been possible!!
Every 14 seconds a child is orphaned because of war, natural disaster, poverty, or disease. Right now, there are 15 million orphans due to AIDS alone. The children often survive alone, without the nurturing they need. Many have suffered the trauma of seeing one or both parents die as a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It's estimated that less than 1% of the world's orphans will be adopted into loving homes.
Veronica's Story is helping to care for these children and empower girls and women to help bring an end to the orphan crisis. But, it is a monumental task. You can help ease the pain of orphans and AIDS-affected children by giving a gift to Veronica's Story.
Your gift will help provide:
- Nutrition and Clean Water
- Medicine and Health Care
- and Shelter
Special Thanks to Fox 5 Television (DC) and the Pat McGee Band

Today I did something that I haven't really done before, I shared part of my own personal adoption story with some of the children I serve. It was a way to build trust and to my surprise, it built something in me too. "
