Our Story

To Children With Love Limited (incorporating To Russia With Love Ltd) is an Irish registered charity which was founded by Dublin woman Debbie Deegan in 1998. She met a group of wonderful abandoned children in Russia suffering from a severe lack of love and made a promise to them that she would be back to help. 18 years later and over 400 trips later and she is still there. To this day she continues to carry out that promise. Over the past year Debbie has become involved with deprived children in other areas of the world including Ireland and currently To Children With Love is planning to focus on a particular project for Irish disadvantaged children. This will not affect our ongoing projects in Russia, it simply means we are bringing some of our expertise home.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to help transform the lives of abandoned and disadvantaged children through programmes designed to enhance their self esteem, dignity, enabling them to feel equal to their peer group in society.

We do this through programmes designed to
– enhance children’s healthcare and education
– improve children’s living conditions
– help children overcome obstacles to achievement
– teach life skills for a brighter future

Through our child centred programmes we strive to build trust, dignity, self esteem, ability and confidence to empower children to participate as equal members of society.

We have changed our name because over the past year To Russia With Love have become involved in other projects as well as our ongoing work in Russia. This includes work in Nepal, India, Vietnam and in our own home Ireland. For this reason – we have changed the name to To Children With Love however our work in Russia continues as before, we still need the support of our wonderful sponsor families and donors. We hope to mirror the success of our Russian programmes in disadvantaged areas in Dublin. We are looking for companies to come on board and help us finance this innovative and successful programme in their local area. For more information please contact
