Creating a safe world for children may seem like an impossible task. Too many children suffer the brunt of neglect, risk and even death when natural disasters strike. They are frequently looked at as the “least of these”, people with little value or importance to society. In reality, children are extremely important for without them we would cease to exist. From a Christian perspective they are the image bearers of Christ to the next generation. For that reason, they are valuable beyond measure.
Sadly, many children from birth through adolescence are at risk. Our commitment to them must be clear and unambiguous. This commitment must be a pledge with both moral and practical obligations. In a moral sense, a commitment signifies a relationship of duty. In practical terms, a commitment binds those making it to a course of action.
A Child’s Hope Int’l is committed to reaching the least of these wherever and whenever the need arises, whether the need is a result of poverty, neglect, war, pestilence, natural disasters or failure of the family. Within our four bridges of care, humanitarian relief takes the form of:
• Hands Against Hunger food
• Clean drinking water
• Fresh water wells
• Medical supplies
• Rescue and rehabilitation from sexual predators
