Help Children in Poor Countries

There are many ways you can help children in poor countries. The tough part is choosing how or which way you want to help them out. Here are several suggestions on how you can contribute and make a difference in the life of a child in poor country.

Give money for women’s sanitary products in Zimbabwe or another disadvantaged country where women do not have access to feminine products. You can buy products from the campaign on their web site and learn other ways in which you can help provide these products to women in need. The campaign is called Dignity! Period. This has direct effect on a woman or teenage girl.

Sponsor a child through a reputable non-profit organization. You could use Christian’s Children’s Fund, which has been around for a very long time and is very well known. Their commercials are always the tear-jerkers showing children starving, living in filthy huts and walking miles to get fresh water. To sponsor a child is really not that expensive. For 80 cents a day you can sponsor a child and help give them a chance to escape poverty by providing them with some basic needs. You can provide them with education, health care and nutritious food. They’ll even send you a picture of the child you sponsor as well as their location and story. You don’t have to necessarily sponsor a child. You can make a one time or ongoing donations to the children’s fund. You can also purchase “gifts of love” which range from things like seeds and tools for a vegetable farm in Mexico to a solar lantern for a child in India.

It is a scary thought to think that a 20 children die daily because of simple illnesses that most think are eradicated. People in the industrialized world no longer die from these simple illnesses. If these children had access to the proper immunizations or medication they would not die. You can help provide low cost medications and basic supplies to children in need. An organization known as Child First Meds helps by providing low cost medications to children in poor countries. You can help by making an ongoing monthly donation, a one time donation or an annual donation. For more information on how you can help give medicine for the better health of children go to their site at: http://www.childfirstmeds.org/donate.html

Hunger is another killer that kills too many children every year. Feed the children is a good organization to get involved with to help feed children around the world. You can help them out in several different ways. You can make a cash donation, you can donate a car, and you can sponsor a child, sponsor through your church or work, go on a mission or start a special project fundraiser.
