A child needs more than food to grow up
Every child needs support not only with food, healthcare and shelter, but in order to grow up as a self led, stable individual with strong values, self esteem and the will to have a positive impact on its surroundings, a child also needs to be given the tools and support to develop on both an emotional and psychological level.
