Father's House International (FHI), incorporated as CAIRD, is a Canadian-based charity making an impact in the relief of poverty by assisting orphaned and abandoned children in Romania and South Africa.
We are not your typical orphanage. We don't have a large facility with many children and care givers who work in shifts. We place our children with committed families in their own countries. They are raised by a loving mother and father. They go to school, play with neighbours and help with chores. They grow up knowing what it is like to be part of a family. We provide educational assistance, nutritional counselling, medical support and even parenting classes in order to help these children to grow up to be strong, healthy, contributing members of their community. Our goal is to teach these children what it means to be part of a healthy family so that as adults they can break the cycles of abuse and abandonment and raise children in healthy families of their own.

Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's Son, born of the virgin Mary, died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose from the grave and ascended to the right hand of the Father.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that anyone who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.
We believe that Christians are motivated by love to grow in Godly character and to serve the Lord through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the ministry of evangelism is a responsibility of both the church and each Christian.
