Changing the Face of the Future, One Child at a Time
November 10, 2017
Our Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner!
highly celebrated and cherished America tradition is only two weeks away. It is a reminder of the kindness of Native Americans toward early European refugees who had escaped
prosecution in the hopes of finding a better life.
To celebrate, the Child Foundation is teaming up with local charities in a virtual Thanksgiving dinner to help refugees in six different countries. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we invite you to help us support the children in these countries:
Afghanistan: Help Afghan refugees who escaped Taliban prosecution and live in tents in Afghanistan's Faryab province.
Cambodia: Help children in a country with over one million orphans and 20,000 street children in the capital, Phnom Phen.
Iran: Help children of Fonooj, one of the most underprivileged regions of Iran, where the schools are man-made huts built with date palm.
Myanmar: Help the stateless, impoverished Rohingya children who have escaped the atrocities of their home country in Myanmar.
Syria: Help newly-arrived Syrian refugees who lack many provisions and live in temporary camps.
Uganda: Help the Batwa indigenous people who had been moved forcefully by the government, leaving them homeless and vulnerable.
I cordially invite you to join us in our virtual Thanksgiving dinner in an effort to extend a helping hand to those who are in dire need. This is a safe and secure opportunity to send your tax-deducible contribution to the virtual dinner of choice.
Let's enjoy this Thanksgiving with the children of the world!
