Quro Orphanage appeal

About the Batam orphans

As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the local and wider community, Quro recently adopted an orphanage in Batam resulting in 12 Quro teachers and students visiting the orphans in April 2011. Accompanied by a team of carpenters and an IT expert, Quro owner Dean Haustead embarked on a long term project to manage the future of the orphanage and its 35 orphans, between the ages of 2 and 16 years old.

During their week-long trip, the Quro team helped to transform the orphanage, redecorating the bedrooms and communal areas, providing clothing and teaching materials, as well as setting up a computer terminal to provide the kids with access to the internet.

Dean Haustead commented, Following the Quro philosophy about giving back, we believe we will be able to make a lifelong difference to these orphans and their carers by taking over the financial running of the establishment in order to secure their future and ensure their schooling in particular continues.

Prior to our visit, these children faced hardships including running out of food and clothing, with plain rice featuring as their sole diet. Lack of funds also interrupted their schooling and it is precisely these disadvantages that we believe we can help and make a difference.
