Children without parental support are some of the world’s most vulnerable citizens. They are at risk of poverty, homelessness, exploitation, and abuse. Many do not attend school or have access to healthcare. Millions end up on the streets with no safety nets and protection. For just over a dollar per day, you can make sure a child who has already lost so much start to rebuild their lives in a caring and positive environment.
Families around the world are more vulnerable today than ever before. Poverty, in particular, presents overwhelming challenges for single parents, who struggle to make ends meet. Their children are often forced to leave school to help support their family. Other times, parents are forced to make the difficult decision to abandon their children.
