Joy and gratefulness should accompany with the birth of each child. Care, love and education are supposed to be rights that every child may enjoy. However, hundreds of millions of children must fight against the odds of various types of risk, illness, poverty and exploitation from birth. These poor children have become helpless among the frequent natural disasters and wars.
Causes of poverty are very complicated. In order to better serve the needs of the children, help them rid all yokes and grow freely in a safe and healthy environment, CEDAR’s ‘Join Hands Join Hearts’ Children Ministry Scheme supports community based programs in Myanmar, India, Ethiopia nad Zimbabwe, helping raise the living standard and transform the lives of these children, their families and their communities.
