Your involvement in FDSF means that you’re making a decision to transform the lives of those who are in need. With this decision you are making a difference in someone’s life and even if they don’t personally get a chance to thank you, your help gives you a feeling of empowerment and compassion.

100% of all donations we receive are used for specific programs and services.
