While our tables are filled with sumptuous feast.. while we open our splendor gifts.. while we savor the glitz and glamour of this yuletide season...There are 1 billion children worldwide living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. 870 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat. The World Food Programme says,“The poor are hungry and their hunger traps them in poverty.” Hunger is the number 1 cause of death in the world, killing more than HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined.
And this Christmas, we can all send a little help by giving a little, sharing a little.. We can all be humanitarians by caring even a little... which is a lot to so many.. We at the WCH urge everyone to make this Christmas different and make it count to the lives of the underprivileged..
WE WISH EVERYONE A MERRY HUMANITARIAN CHRISTMAS 2014!
