“When I am hungry it is not comfortable for me. I can’t concentrate on my lesson, and I don’t fit in with the children who are well and have enough to eat.” Halima Boru, 9, Kenya
The pictures coming out of East Africa have shocked us all. Thousands face starvation and sickness. And wherever hunger strikes, it’s the children who suffer the most.
Making a donation to an emergency appeal is vital. Yet to make a difference today, tomorrow and for the years ahead, there’s something you can do today that has an enormous effect. It’s called Child Sponsorship.
At the moment we have 5,069 children in Africa who are waiting for sponsors…and at the moment we simply do not have enough sponsors to help them. The situation is critical.
For £15 a month (just 50p a day) you can do so much to help a child. Your 50p a day can provide them with life-saving medicine and at least one decent, nutritious meal a day. The way we work means that their community will also gain access to education, healthcare, and water to help their crops grow again.
More than at any other time, ActionAid need you to become a sponsor. So please do it today.
Support a child. Transform a community. Change their world.
