Helping and protecting children in Britain. Overview of charitable organizations

Stratford Editorial 26th Aug, 2022   0

Every child in the world should have a dignified, safe and happy childhood. Unfortunately, the modern world cannot provide 100% protection for the children and their future, especially those born under difficult financial conditions. Serious illness, poverty, humiliation, aggression are what up to 30% of children in Britain can experience. But only some of them can get appropriate help. In order to raise the level of social protection of children, hundreds of charitable foundations have been created to take care of those who need it. Most likely, you already know about the existence of such funds as Save the Children, UNICEF, National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) – these are the largest and most popular children’s aid funds in the UK.

And apart from them, there are those who do the same, but are considerably limited in human and financial resources. There is now a strong need for volunteers who can spend at least a small portion of their time helping children.

Why should you help charitable foundations?

Each of us aspires to live in the world, with the awareness that absolutely every person has equal opportunities and can be the creator of his or her life. Children are the least protected group, and their future is more often shaped by the childhood they spend. Many children in Britain have not found themselves in the best conditions, but each of us can be the creator of their second chance for salvation and good development.
