I National Children's Home I I HELP THE ORPHANS. I I Arrangements have been made for a house-to- house collection in Brecon during next week on be- half of the work of the National Children's Home and Orphanage. This Home was founded 46 years ago by Dr. T. Bowman Stephenson. It be- gan with the rescue of two boys, and it has grown to be one of the largest child-saving institutions in the country. While its primary purpose is the saving and training of destitute children, provision is also made for those who are orphaned, crip- pled aifd otherwise afflicted. The children are received irrespective of creed or locality, need be- ing the determining factor in respect of their ad- mission. The Home has received motherless children of soldiers, who have been called to the front, children of Belgian Refugees, and the orphans of soldiers and sailors who have fallen in the service of their country. Applications for the admission of such children are being received daily, and the committee is anxious to help to the usmost these bereft little ones. The erection of a sanatorium at Harpenden, a. recent development of the work, has already pro- ved of incalculable benefit to a number of child- ren threatened with consumption. The Principal, Rev. W. Hodson Smith, will be pleased to supply reports and particulars to any friends making application to him at the chief offices, 104-122, City Road, London, E.C., or Mr J. Thomas, 13, Lion Street, Brecon, who is the lofcal honorary secretary, will also \be pleased to give information respecting the work of the Home, and also to welcome such assistance as friends may be able to give. 300 children have been ad- mitted inta the if?z-e from Wales and Monmouth- sb ire.. 624
