Our Process


Love One typically receives cases through referral by government officials, community liaisons, or parents of children who previously received care. Each child is assessed and assigned a level of severity based on their symptoms, overall health, and available resources. Most children brought to Love One would likely die without medical attention so they’re taken to the hospital for immediate treatment.


Once children are stable enough to discharge from the hospital, they come to the Love One Center for extended rehabilitation. Care includes daily assessment by a licensed pediatrician, a balanced diet based on an individualized nutrition plan, play and physiotherapy, and learning about Jesus. During the rehabilitation period, families are educated about their child’s nutrition, sanitation, and hygiene needs.


After rehabilitation, it’s time to resettle! Love One’s social workers develop a resettlement plan for each child to return to their family. The team evaluates the stability of the support network — does the child come from a healthy home? Is the family able to financially support him or her? Questions like these and many more are asked and answered to best set up the family for success. The Love One team follows up periodically to monitor the child’s physical progress and ensure that the family unit remains whole.

Additional Love

While the primary focus is rehabilitation and resettlement, Love One has two additional programs to provide both supplemental and preventative care.

Home-Based Care

In many cases, children cannot be admitted to the Love One Center due to contagious infection or a breastfeeding mother, or because the center has reached maximum capacity. Under these circumstances, Love One provides in-home medical care and nutritional support.

Community Outreach

As a preventative measure for malnutrition, the Love One team travels to communities to educate families on healthcare, hygiene, and nutrition.
