You may have heard the saying ‘children’s brains are like sponges’? It’s true – there’s no more important period in a child’s life than the first 1,000 days. Their brains develop faster than at any other time, which means how healthy they are as toddlers will determine their future. In poor countries, as many as one in three children are malnourished and the effects are irreversible.
Poverty is not inevitable. Together we can change it.
CARE International has been leading the fight to end poverty in more than 70 of the most vulnerable countries in the world. Our team has been rising to the challenge since the end of WW2, helping to reduce the number of people living in extreme poverty. And we won’t stop until the work is done.
When children have enough to eat, they grow up healthy, do better in school, and earn more as adults. Our Life2Live appeal is raising vital funds to help families give their children a healthy and secure start in life.
Will you join us with a gift of £8 a month, or whatever you can afford?
Every child deserves a life to live.
