The children provide their own enthusiasm as they work toward new skills and the chance to reach their full potential. D. H., Long-time donor Our programs uphold strong, vital principles, which have been adapted from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: • • • • • gender equality environmental responsibility community ownership partnership ethical allocation of resources Precious health A child’s health is far too often compromised by poverty. To help, we provide clinics with medicines and supplies to treat illness and disease. We provide much-needed support to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS, and we offer disease prevention and health protection strategies through community and family education programs. Vital nourishment Hunger and malnourishment should not be an issue in this world, but it is. Having access to health-giving food is a child’s right that we fight to protect. Along with our long-term projects to improve a family’s ability to feed their children well and regularly, we provide immediate nutrition to overcome serious malnourishment, both in Canada and around the world. Family support Never does so little mean so much to children as when struggling parents are given a head start to generate income. Our programs give families a head start to generate income and find the means to safeguard their children’s health. For abandoned or orphaned children, we help provide solace, and all the support required to make a youngster feel safe, protected and valued.
