Support A Child
Here Are 8 Ways You Can Easily Support a Child in Need
South Africa has often been described as the land of opportunities; as a nation with great potential; as a country with the ability to be a major player on a global level.
For the just shy of 60 million people calling South Africa home, these views should hold promise of a bright future, but the stark reality of our daily lives tell a very different story. We live in the most unequal country in the world according to the World Bank database. Children are often the ones who suffer most in this environment. This is an uncomfortable truth, which you may wish to change.
BUT! Where would you even start to address this situation? Will it truly make a difference to support a child in need?
Faced with the immense challenge such as childhood poverty in South Africa today, it is no wonder that so many of us are feeling overwhelmed to the point of inaction.
It is estimated at last calculation that almost 34% of the population is under the age of 18, translating to almost 20 million children in the country. Of these, UNICEF estimates that just over 60% (or six out of every ten) children are multi-dimensionally poor. Would it make a difference if you could support one child in need? It would have no impact on that figure whatsoever.
The answer is, of course, that your support of that single child in need would change their entire world. It would give them an opportunity to live a better life. Each child that receives support helps to break the poverty cycle for that individual, for their family, for their community… and so the impact grows.
Even with the odds stacked against us and the situation we face seemingly insurmountable, it’s much easier to make a difference than you may realise.
