Charities

The Penny Queen Charities Cor Jesu will be supporting are:

 
The Wendpouire Project

The Wendpouire Project works to aid struggling families and abandoned children in Burkina Faso, a country in Africa in which defected children are often left to die or mutilated because they are believed to be bad luck. Rebeccah Schroeder, the foundress of this foundation, has been living in a missionary there for several years. Wendpouire was a terminally ill child who needed immediate critical care, but was left to die because his family did not have the resources to take care of him. Becky (Rebeccah) adopted this child in order to transport him to the US to help him get some of the medical treatment he needed. Wendpouire improved dramatically and went to live another two years, loved by many and cared for in a way that had been seemingly impossible for any child facing illness in his village. Although he did pass, Becky continues this foundation in which she helps give children in Burkina Faso the treatment they need, including anything ranging from a wheelchair and baby formula, to transport to the US to receive skin grafts and heart transplants. Her tagline is "It matters to the one." This greatly reflects our charism of sharing the love of the heart of Christ because her belief in the importance of loving and caring for even just one child, whether they will heal as many of the children she treats do, or as they near the end of their life, as Wendpouire was.

The Covering House

The Covering House is a non-profit foundation founded in 2008 by a woman who was appalled by the reality of trafficking happening in our area without many resources available to help those affected. In 2014 The Covering House opened its first therapeutic home for girls between the ages of 13-17 who have experienced sexual trafficking or exploitation in the U.S. It has been widely reported that the St. Louis area is uniquely susceptible to sex trafficking. The Covering House also provides community based services for girls who have been involved in trafficking who are not in need of a home. Two other programs of vital importance are also provided: a supportive adults program and a reducing the risk program.
