“When I had to flee my country, I only had the clothes I am wearing, not even a pair of sandals. I came here with nothing.” Taslima, age 10, Rohingya refugee
When emergency strikes, children like Taslima lose everything. Separated from their parents, family and friends. Displaced from their homes. Deprived of their childhoods.
There are millions of children around the world who are living in communities affected by war, civil violence and natural disasters. They urgently need your help.
The festive season is a time when we come together to celebrate Christmas with our loved ones. But while we are counting our blessings, there will be children who are suffering, their lives torn apart by emergencies like the Rohingya refugee crisis in Myanmar or the recent earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.
After the immediate emergency response, the crisis doesn’t end for children like Taslima. Often, they find themselves in desperate circumstances, at risk of hunger, cold, disease, and violence. Your donation can change that this Christmas.
All that’s left for children in crisis is a daily battle for survival. For some children, the festive season will be a time of hunger, fear and sadness, not of joy and hope – but you can help make sure children in crisis survive, and thrive.
