Each of the children in our programs are living in poverty. For their mums, Christmas is a choice between presents or food. Your gift will mean these women don’t have to face that choice. It will be one less thing they have to worry about right now. And it will mean these kids don’t feel left out when they hear about the kinds of Christmas other families are having.
Family violence and homelessness can have a big impact on children. Living in a prolonged state of stress affects their social and emotional development. It can even alter the chemistry of their brain, making it harder for them to regulate their emotions and find calm.
Feeling spoilt, having fun, and taking a break from their worries, is exactly what these children need.
Please give to our Christmas appeal today.
