We urgently need you to help vulnerable children who will spend this Christmas exploited, forgotten and desperate.
Your gift can help children living in poverty to get back their freedom, their health and their joy. Thank you for giving what you can this Christmas.
Tania (pictured above) and so many vulnerable children in countries like Bangladesh, South Sudan and Ethiopia, have nowhere else to turn. Child labour, conflict, drought and flooding have taken so much from them.
In a desperate attempt to support her family, 14-year-old Tania has been working in dreadful conditions in the local fish depot. For eight hours during the night, she peels huge quantities of icy shrimps, cutting her aching fingers on the razor-sharp shells. The joy of being a child has been taken from her. Her right to be safe has gone. She cannot take much more.
Please help us to reach vulnerable children and families this Christmas.
We are working with Tania and children like her to change their futures. Tania is now attending a learning centre supported by World Vision. These centres give children a chance to play and catch-up on their education. Older children can learn new skills to help them make a decent living when the time comes. For Tania, her dream is to become a nurse so that she can help others.
Today, you can help us to re-write the futures of children like Tania. Thank you.
