In Latin America and the Caribbean, 45% of children are affected by at least one moderate to severe deprivation, which means that almost 81 million people under age suffer from child poverty, according to a study by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Many of their families live with less than US$2 at day; this income is not enough to cover their basic needs.
Plan Regalo 2013
Many children in poverty condition around the world feel abandoned, neglected, and hopeless. They need to know someone cares about them, and that there is hope. A toy from you could reassure them that you care and wish happiness to these underprivileged families; with solidarity you can make a difference in a child’s life and family!
Our target goal for 2013 is to collect 2 containers full of donations; to distribute among children from Haiti and Dominican Republic.
