Across the world, due to war, illness or natural disaster, many children have lost their family. Grieving and traumatised, they now have to fend for themselves, often living in extreme poverty.
In countries around the globe, many children have been born into conflict and poverty. Many have lost their parents and wider family and are now living in conditions where their basic needs cannot be met. Essential human rights such as food, clean water, clothing, shelter or education are denied to them. Instead, they may find themselves pulled into working on the streets, sexual exploitation, crime or abuse in order to find enough to eat each day. This is not the childhood they deserve.
Children in need require not just physical aid in order to survive. Emotional support and education are essential for healthy development and a chance of a bright future – especially for children who have experienced difficulties, grown up in war-torn areas or poverty. For many, whether they live with extended family or alone, most of all they need security and stability.
Regular sponsorship can provide them with a reliable source of income to pay for food, healthcare and education. It can also connect them with emotional counselling to nurture and heal them from the trauma they have experienced.
Our Rainbow Family programme has been running since 2007 in countries around the world, facilitating sponsorship of thousands of children.
