Children Around the World

I am always online reading the news around the world and see different ways that students can volunteer to help the less fortunate children around the world. This time I came across an article written about the children around the world and picture attached of their bedroom, and I have to say it was pretty uneasy to see and very eye opening.  I feel that it is our duty to help one another through the difficult situations, we as students, the future of the world to come, to rise and try to make a change for this kids.  I believe that once we have enough support, then we can make a change for the children.  One of the kids was Alex and he was from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and he was 9 years old, and his bedroom is simply a ripped couch outside. When we think of a bedroom we think of a safe place, inside in the warmth.

Another child was Bilal, 6 years old from Wadi Adu Hindi, West Bank.


Bilal, 6, Wadi Abu Hindi, The West Bank    Bilal does not even have a bed, and his room is made up of wires that act like walls.

Lamine, 12, Bounkiling village, Senegal

This is Lamine and he’s 12 years old from Senegal and his bedroom consists of a flat woods put together and many blankets.  There were many more pictures of children from different countries but these were the ones that really stuck out the most. It is important that we help to bring awareness around our schools and our communities in order for us to donate blankets or necessary things needed. It is important to put all selfishness aside and try to help these kids.  Contact UNICEF, bring up a conversation with someone about it, talk to different fundraiser to promote the awareness, etc.. One person can make a difference, but a group of people can make a BIG difference!
