Double Your Gift This Mother’s Day

Imagine a sprawling, broken and dirty city road dotted with storefronts full of trinkets being sold by men shooting leering looks in your direction. You tug the scarf a little tighter around your chin and grab your tiny child’s hand, walking quickly towards the little vendor down the block, dodging motorcycles and mangy dogs scrounging through garbage in the street. The men’s stares follow you the whole way.

 

Your child’s eyes look up to meet yours, “Mama, can we buy some eggs today?”

 

The innocent face nearly breaks your heart because you know the cost of a dozen eggs is more than you make in an entire day. You clutch in your hand your meager bit of money as you try to forget about the bleak meal you’ll be feeding your child once again. You wonder, “What has life come to? How will I ever provide for my child without stooping to desperate measures?”

 

MILLIONS OF MOTHERS FACE THIS TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCE EVERY DAY.

 

 

This scenario is not uncommon for young, at-risk mothers around the world. Unable to provide for their child’s basic needs, desperate choices are made to survive. Rarely will these mothers ever be able to lift themselves and their children out of hopeless poverty.

 

BUT THROUGH SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU—LIVES ARE CHANGING.
