Hidden from the newspaper headlines, millions of children are fighting to survive on a daily basis. But this isn’t a fair fight.
Children born into poverty are almost twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday. Almost 70% of children in South Africa live in poverty: 45% of children are “poor” and live on less than R620 a month; 22% are “extremely poor” living off less than R321 a month.
We are working to change these statistics. But we can’t do it on our own. Do something amazing! Become an activist. Your donations will change lives forever.
