The children need your help!
The pandemic has made it nearly impossible for us
to do any fundraising, and yet so many of the chil-
dren we help to stay in school need our assistance
more than ever. Most of them live in overcrowded
slums. Their families are constantly struggling to
secure food and basic necessities. And now, they
also all must endure the constant threat of serious
illness, possibly death, from the still uncontrolled
pandemic. Never in our 34-year history have we
seen all these dire circumstances conspire to create
a truly devastating environment for the most vul-
nerable members of society. No young mind should
be left defenseless against malnutrition, the loss of
family income, threats of crimes against children
and, now, catastrophic illness. PLEASE HELP SAVE
