Problems Millions of Children Face Each Day

The modern technological world is an amazing place filled with innovative comforts and advancements – but only for some. Millions of children fight each day just to stay alive in a world they find filled with obstacles. Here are just three of the many problems millions of children face every day.

Water

Children throughout the world lack clean water. When they do find a water source, it is often filled with bacteria, larvae, or animal feces. The kids are even forced to share watering holes where animals are bathing as children are drinking the water. There are charities that focus on bringing clean water to those youngsters. If you have a few extra dollars each month, save a child.

Food

In a world filled with so much abundance and prosperity, it is difficult to believe that children lack ample food, but it is true. There are over 16 million American children that go to school hungry every day. Although those starving children may have one meal a day during the school year, what about the children that aren’t in school yet – and the babies. Donate to a food bank if you can.

Homelessness

They may be invisible, but there are homeless children that live a transient life filled with lack. The children often don’t go to school, can’t read or write, and they lack basic social skills. What will become of the millions of homeless kids? When Eyal Gutentag heard about the homeless children in Los Angeles, his charity sprang to action to help. You can help too by making a donation to a shelter or charity.
Children are supposed to be the hope of the future, but if they are not given the basic requirements of life, there is no future for many of them. Your world may be filled with amazing modern advancements and tech toys, but for millions of children, the day simply means finding enough food to eat and a warm place to stay out of the horrible weather. Can you help?
