Everyone feels connected to an innocent, sinless and pure child. Representing more than 70% of the global population, children are quite special as they bring sunshine and laughter into our lives.
But it is quite disturbing to know that a large number of children die due to hunger and poverty every day. Yes every single day, we lose lives of quite a few lives who could contribute towards growth of the world in their future.
According to UNICEF, about 22,000 children die every day due to poverty and related reasons. It goes without saying that children are our future. They therefore cannot be ignored, must be raised with care, love, and knowledge.
