1.2 Million Children are trafficked every year
that is simply
1,200,000 children bought, sold, exploited, abused, forced to work, hope destroyed, unable to run.
unable to run
And its not just about poor and developing countries, no, it is happening everywhere.
And it has to END
Sometimes people ask why I run. The answer is complex, but part of it is “I run because others can’t”
Hope for Children is a great charity, and they don’t just work with child exploitation, but more generally towards a world where children’s rights are realised and they can reach their full potential. They actively identify disadvantaged children and communities by working with local partners. This means the work they do results in life long and sustained good.
So I have entered the Hope24Run and have set up a sponsors page – all I ask is that as I set about training over the next 6 months you might think about the issues of child exploitation and as a response donate to Hope for Children via my giving page. If you do this, you can be confident that this money will directly contribute to improving the lives of children and their communities. That’s not much to ask is it? Thanks.
Grace and peace
