The Rebuild Campaign. Are your childhood memories happy?

rebuild campaign

I was very lucky to have a happy childhood. This is a photo of me and my sister Tricia at my grandads house on our fabulous bikes that our Aunty Jane bought us for Christmas. So exciting to have your first bike!

This may seem a very typical picture of  happy childhood memory.

Many children don’t have childhoods filled with happy memories.

In the last decade 10 million children have been psychologically traumatised as a result of war. Many children die or become  ill as a result of living in conflict. ActionAid have launched a campaign to help rebuild the lives of thesechildren.

ActionAid’s child sponsorship programme enables the charity to do vital work in war-affected countries. This work  gives children the basics they need such as water, food and an education.

Throughout the Rebuild campaign they are hoping to secure more than 2,200 new UK child sponsors for children in war-affected countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia and Sierra Leone

Everyone has the right to a safe and happy childhood.

Even if you just want to join the conversation on Twitter @ActionAidUK and tell them you’re supporting #REBUILD www.actionaid.org.uk/child that would be great. The rebuild campaign needs your help.
