The truth is quite simple… the future of this world lies in the hands of the children of today. But the harsh reality is that there is an entire generation of innocent children growing up right now without any prospects for thier future.. these children are affected by displacement due to serious conflict and emergencies in thier various regions. When families are forced to leave their homes due to violence, persecution, natural disasters, they are torn apart and it’s the children that end up suffering the most. The numbers are staggering, yes… but we have to continue to stand for them, in whatever capacity we can as individuals. They are the future and we need to help.
