2020 has challenged us in ways we never imagined. But here’s an opportunity to make this year memorable for all the right reasons!
By taking part in the ChildFund Choose Your Challenge 2020, you can set your own challenge, fundraise and make a difference for vulnerable children around the globe which 2020 has challenged more than ever.
For children in poor communities like one-year-old Max in Papua New Guinea (pictured, right), the impact of COVID-19 is just as big a risk as the virus itself.
School closures, food shortages, gaps in healthcare, job losses, and an increase in domestic violence are just some of the ways the pandemic is affecting children in developing communities.
By fundraising as part of our 2020 Challenge, you can help more children like Max during this time of significant upheaval in their lives.
Choose any challenge around a goal of 20. You can read 20 books to your children, commit 20 acts of kindness in your community, plant 20 seedlings or complete a 20km run or hike.

Here’s a few from the ChildFund team:
