Millions of children around the world lack access to basic necessities, such as food, clean water, sanitation, medicine, shelter, education, books, fun, family, laughter, love - but there is hope. You can help poor children have a better future in a number of ways. Volunteering your time and efforts to children can make a very big impact. You could also raise money or donate goods to charity. If you are willing to make a commitment, you can become a personal advocate for a child in need through mentoring and fostering. No effort is too small or too large to make.
