In Liberia, the estimated 2,000 children who have lost both parents to Ebola now find themselves on the edges of society. Without a coordinated international response to the virus, the futures of an entire generation could be in jeopardy.
Half a million children in Guatemala are suffering from malnutrition. A drought has caused bean and corn crops to fail, and now their parents' coffee crops have been destroyed by coffee rust. They need help, or their development is in peril.
For children, growing up in poverty can mean missing out on necessities, such as a proper bed to sleep in, or clean clothes. Our Eat, Sleep, Learn, Play! programme addresses children's immediate needs, but also improves their futures. So far it's helped 30,000 children, but we need to reach more.
