How much more TIME do we need to stop all these deaths.

Time to Act.

by tempeste

Every fifteen seconds a child under 5 dies
of hunger, its body covered in flies.

Every minute there is a child victim of violence,
of sex abuse, who suffers in silence.

In 2016 there were 75.000 children
victim of child labour, aged between five and eleven.

Today 400 million children live in war stricken zones,
their homes reduced to rubble and stones.

I don't want your vote but I do think we should all stop and seriously think about all those children that are suffering and dying.

The numbers are staggering ....we have so much , too much...let's not pretend they don't exist... let's donate to some charitable cause working to save them or even just say a prayer for these children.
