Profile: Norma Nashed, Dialogue with president and founder Norma Nashed


To meet Norma Nashed is to enter the eye of a hurricane. As the founder of the nonprofit organization Restore a Child, Nashed has an all-consuming passion for serving orphans around the world, and she’s not shy about enticing others to join her cause. Our initial introduction is barely completed before the rapid-fire questions begin: “Are you married? Yes? Do you have children? No? Good! Then you should have free time to volunteer with us.” Such audacity goes a long way toward explaining how Nashed has managed to coordinate Restore a Child’s outreach to thousands of children virtually single-handedly for the past 13 years. This is a woman whose own life has dramatically changed course and faced daunting challenges numerous times, yet she has steadfastly maintained an unshakeable faith in God and His leading.

RC’s President, Norma Nashed, featured in REVIEW magazine


October 14, 2010

Few dreams are realized or fullfilled. Fewer still exceed the expectations of the dreamer who strives earnestly to take a dream to fruition. But the story of Reaching Hearts for Kids (RHK), a Maryland-based nonprofit organization, is the story of how one woman lives her dream of selfless service to orphans in 13 countries. As the world observes World Orphans Day on November, 8, 2010, Norma Nashed, president and founder of Reaching Hearts for Kids, reminds Adventists around the world to unite with scores of organizations in fullfilling the command of the Lord to "visit the fatherless... in their affliction" (James 1:27, KJV).

Fox 5 News Features RHK as a Trusted Charity


Despite economy, many offer help to those in Haiti

January 18, 2010

Fox 5 News features RHK as a trusted charity for donations.
Nashed's charity supports orphanages in 13 countries, including Haiti. There, the Eden Garden orphanage survived. The difficulty now is trying to help the thousands that continue to come to them for aid. "They have a health clinic, where they are serving the injured people, they have a school and a bakery-- all they need is funds so they can feed people," said Nashed. Microgiving is changing the way charities run their campaigns. Today doesn't take a millionaire -- just millions of people giving small amounts -- to make a big difference.

The Gazette Community News: Out of the Ashes


January 17, 2008

The same day that Norma Nashed arrived in Ethiopia to build a home for orphaned children, she learned her Cherry Glen condominium was engulfed in flames. Going onto a news website, she cried as she watched her Beltsville condo burning, but she knew she couldn't leave-- she had a mission to complete. "I cried and couldn't sleeo for four days, but I still had to work," Nashed said. That work entailed completing the orphanage in Ambo, Ethiopia and finalizing the purchase of land planned for a village complete with a school and health clinic. The village would also include 10 homes with shelter for 10 children between the ages of three and 12 years old. Click here to read the full article,"Out of the Ashes, A Dream still Remains"

Norma Nashed works today in her tiny Maryland apartment as she guides the world-wide ministry of Reaching Hearts for Kids. The petite retiree speaks softly of God's leading in her life.
