Unicef claims that there are as many as 32 million children living on the streets in Africa. These children have no home to go to at the end of the day and no family to show them love. Their only water supply is a muddy sewer, their food is often food in rubbish tips and their bed is wherever they can find to shelter them from their harsh reality. Help us give them shelter and a chance at life!
We would love to have you involved with the Fast4Africa! (Remember you don't have to fast, you can choose another event)
Research from The Children's Mutual found that 41 per cent of toys and presents given to children at Christmas are broken by March, with children on average receiving 10 presents in addition to those provided by their parents.
Research by LloydsTSB Insurance found that the average child owns £1,720 of toys in their bedroom and 90 per cent of parents who were questioned in December 2007 said they were planning to spend up to £500 on their children at Christmas.
