Somewhere in the world, a child is orphaned every 22 seconds. It is unfortunate that many will have no choice but to make their way in the world on their own and could face abuse and exploitation. For an orphan who has gone through the pain of losing a parent, the least that could be done is to ensure that child’s life does not suffer because of a want of necessities. What can be done is ensure that the orphan is not lacking for food, shelter, education, healthcare and the general love and security they need for a stable upbringing.
‘Giving just $2 a day is a small price that will change a child’s life forever. It will not only provide them with the essentials of life but, just as importantly, will let them know there is someone who cares for them.’
