Nelson Mandela when talking about children in need, once equated the world to a human body. He said in the same way a human body cannot deny the impact of gangrene on a limb, the world cannot ignore the plight of so many orphans in Africa. To do so is not just immoral, it imperils us all.
Mandela’s powerful analogy stands for why we must raise awareness of any situation in which children are put at risk or left alone to fend for themselves.
For meaningful, lasting action and change to take place, people across the globe must know and understand the issue.
CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to enrich the lives of children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors, through Small Acts, that can bring hope, support and comfort.
Spread the word
The second, and equally important, is to spread the message to the world through our growing community of Small Actors (those who commit to act on the children’s behalf), about those who run the grassroots organisations that look after the children in need.
Recognition and support
We also raise awareness by highlighting the extraordinary work being done around the world by these organisations, who with little assistance or presence, go to great lengths to help their children not only survive but thrive. They deserve our recognition and support.
