You don’t have to go far to find a child who needs your help.
Harry isn’t like other children. The flat where he lives with his Mum and Dad has no heating. There’s no food in the cupboards. Right now Harry feels very sad and very small. And he is small – he’s just five years old.
It would be easy to pass Harry off as someone else’s problem. But you know, and I know, that this just wouldn’t be right. Because Harry is just a child. And a child in need is the responsibility of every one of us.
Harry could live in your street
Severe poverty, drug and alcohol problems, mental health issues, family breakdown. They can all lead to children living in conditions you’d find hard to believe.
It happens everywhere.
Blythswood Care runs nine foodbank centres, providing emergency food, a listening ear and putting people in touch with others who can help them.
But that cannot happen without the support of people like you.
So please, make the simple, but life-transforming decision to support a vulnerable child through our Family Appeal today.
