This Giving Tuesday, we are excited to announce our new online gift catalog! The new store makes it simple to help a child in need for as little as $25. So how much good can $25 do for children? In the hands of our World of Children Honorees — a lot!
Thanks to their work, this Giving Tuesday — and every day — your $25 donation can help children around the world.
Adi Roche – Ukraine and Belarus
When a child is institutionalized, he or she is often deprived of the opportunity to experience family life, feel like a full member of society and develop in a normal environment. When that child has limited physical or mental abilities, his opportunities to thrive in an institutional environment are close to zero. Chernobyl Children International is pioneering an effort to enable children with severe disabilities to remain at home with their families by providing necessary medicine, supplies, and access to in-home medical care. Your gift provides all medicine and supplies for one family for a week, allowing them one more week at home with their precious child. Buy this gift »

Your gift provides pain medication for up to 250 child patients at the Friends Without a Border hospital in Laos and helps ensure that every patient has access to quality care. Buy this gift »
