Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
Though the effects of Covid-19 are the main focus at the present time, there are many children living a life that was full of struggles before the pandemic, and sadly, will continue after it is all over. The areas in these children's lives that were able to be helped when times were good have taken a hit due to the pandemic. With your help, we can continue to work towards putting smiles on the faces of kids who are going through tough times that they do not deserve
