One heart

Hi, my name is Aya and l'm starting a fundraiser to help kids in Tanzania. According to UNICEF estimates, 356 million children are living in extreme poverty. Around 1 billion children are thought to be lacking at least one basic need, such as a place to live, regular food, or clean water. Children are more than twice as likely as adults to live in poverty, and when compared to their wealthier peers, the poorest children have a double the chance of dying before the age of 5. Children from low-income families (often orphans) are raised with limited or non-existent resources. Africa is losing the battle against extreme poverty; 27 of the world's 28 poorest countries are in Sub-saharan Africa. I'm volunteering to go help kids in Tanzania, which is the reason why I'm starting this fundraiser aimed at providing underprivileged kids with food, clothing, shelter and school essentials; a lack of which often results in four main negative effects: death, poor physical health, mental health issues, and a low sense of wellbeing. If you're looking to play your part in the fight against poverty and illnesses, feel free to send in your donations here. Remember, no matter how big or small, your help can go a long way. Together, let's make a difference!
