But for thousands of children in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who face hunger, lack of clean water, homelessness and poverty on a daily basis, the holiday season isn't something to celebrate, especially for children suffering the economic, physical and emotional impact of COVID-19.
They don’t put up Christmas trees or decorations, stay up late listening for sleigh bells, or wake up early to unwrap new Christmas presents of toys or gift cards. Feeling unloved and forgotten, these children may never know the true hope and joy that Christmas promises.
We believe that every child deserves happiness, food, clothing, shoes, and receive Christmas gifts. Thanks to donations from people like you to the Upright Kids Foundation, we would like to make sure that every child feels special on this Christmas Day. Your generosity to give back makes Christmas feel special to children living in poverty.
The gifts we give to the kids also help provide for essential needs, and may include items like:
