Happy Monday! Today is 4 April and hence a chance to showcase the letter “C” as part of this month’s A-to-Z Challenge! I am so glad to be participating in this programme for the first (and hopefully not last time) this year. With a heavy topic such as I have chosen — to shed light on Child Abuse & Sexual Assault Awareness — today seems a perfect day to showcase a couple of the many (!) charities that bring awareness to the ongoing abuse and work to lower the number of victims.

#1World Vision

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian non-profit dedicated to “building a better world for children” by tackling poverty, providing emergency services, advocating for justice and sponsoring individual children in 97 countries.

I will let World Vision share their passion for “child protection” with their own words (from their site):

World Vision seeks to create a protective environment around children, such that they not only survive but thrive in their communities. World Vision’s programs strive to ensure that physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of the most vulnerable children are met within caring and protective families and communities — focusing on activities that prevent them from falling into crisis or harmful situations; protect those who are in immediate danger through responsive care and improved capacity of service providers to respond; and restore child survivors of abuse, exploitation, or violence through appropriate community-based care.

Celebrities who have previously & currently served as ambassadors for World Vision, bringing attention to the charity, include: President Bill Clinton, actor Hugh Jackman and The Property Brothers (Jonathan & Drew Scott).

UNICEF is short for the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund. The fund provides humanitarian care for children and their mothers in over 36 countries and territories.

The fund works to provide children with safety, education, nutrition and sanitation while bringing awareness to the world! As celebrity ambassador Tom Hiddleston said,

Children, whether those journeying as refugees through Europe or living in conflicts like South Sudan, deserve a chance of a childhood.

The Joyous Living: Tom Hiddleston supports UNICEF.
Other celebrity ambassadors for UNICEF include: Sir Roger Moore, Presenter Cat Deeley and footballer David Beckham OBE.

If you are looking to support our world’s children, these are just two of the many charities doing good. Might I suggest you do some research for a charity that interests you. For less than $2 a day you can support an individual child, helping them receive food, healthcare, education, etc.! You can also make a one-time donation to any of these lovely charities to help the greater good be accomplished.

    Important topic! There are so many children living in extreme poverty, needing our help. The charities I support are both Christian organizations: Samaratin's Purse and Compassion International.

    Samaritan's Purse sends "Operation Christmas Child" gift boxes in December, but all through the year there are other opportunities to donate.

    Compassion International is one of those organizations where you can sponsor a child, to pay for their education and other needs. I'm sponsoring an 8 year old girl living in Chiapas, Mexico. I'm so in love with that organization. There are other secular organizations that also help children through sponsorship.

    Anyhow, great post. Thanks for raising awareness for children's charities.

    World Vision is a wonderful organization! We've been sponsoring a child through them for at least the last 8 or so years 🙂

    That's a great thought. Today's Children are the future of our world. It is important for everyone of us to make this world a better place for them with whatever we can do.

    The more you give, the more you will receive.
    There are far too many children who are deprived of basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing.
    Today's children are tomorrow's leaders. It's scary to think what the future holds in store for humanity, and what will happen if we don't help the kids.
    Thank you for showcasing these charitable organizations at your blog today!

    Charity is a great theme for a blog post, however, I would have loved to hear about charities who help people with orphan diseases and charity that are less common, less people.

    There’s no better gift than charity. It helps to give people a chance at life. It’s always a joy to help people in need.

    These are fantastic suggestions! It’s horrible how many charities spend so much of your donation on things other than their actual cause. Great to see a vetted list of good ones!

    World Vision has done so much to help the children live a life they deserve. It makes me sad to hear of news of children in other parts of the world living in dire straits, in conditions that put their lives at risk, and the lack of food and safe drinking water. I will do my part and help too.

    When I was working in Korea, our church also supports World Vision. Now that I’m in the Philippines, I’m the one asking for sponsorship to support my advocacy: Eliminate Online Sexual Exploitation of Children.
