Children are important
You believe, as we do, that every child deserves a future.
The world has made great progress for children. More children are alive and thriving today than ever before.
But in South Sudan, millions of children still aren't getting what they deserve. We're talking about children in need. Dying, when the world knows how to save them. Vulnerable children in poverty. Denied an education. Forced to flee violence. Orphaned, abused, abandoned. Children with no reason to smile. No hope for the future.
