Would you want your child to grow up in an environment where 39% of them didn’t even have access to clean water? Drinking unclean water contaminated with faeces can lead to horrific diseases such as cholera causing severe dehydration through diarrhea and even death.
In a world where malnutrition is common place and less than one-fourth of them have access to adequate sanitation facilities.
A place where one in eight children will not reach their fifth birthday!
280,000 orphans with no hope or no future.
Young ones forced to work in exploitative and dangerous conditions.
Schools are undersupplied and overcrowded with up to one hundred students per classroom.
This is life for a child in Togo, a small country in West Africa. It has a long history of human rights abuse and political unrest, as well as being one of the poorest countries in the world.
Many poor families in Togo’s rural areas migrate to towns and cities like the capital, Lomé, in search of employment and a better way of life. They bring with them their children. What awaits them isn’t what they hoped for with the vast majority falling into desperate poverty. They end up living in makeshift shacks, creating a veritable hub of disease.
I want to help the children of Togo! Can you help me?
My name’s Fidelia and the thought of what these children are going through shakes me to my core. I want to do something about this. I’m raising funds to provide poor and homeless children with food and school supplies.
I want to help them to make a life instead of just becoming another statistic.
I’m so focused on this task that I’m currently starting my own charitable organization whose mission is to focus on educating children and helping to support women in the poorest areas of Togo.
At the end of this year I will be visiting Togo. Your support can make my visit significant to those in need.
This won’t just be a donation that you never hear anything about. I will be documenting my journey with photographs and videos so you can see exactly where your kind donations will go.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I genuinely hope you will consider donating and sharing the link.
Let’s make a difference!
Help spread the word!
