A CHILD’S LIFE IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR

A CHILD’S LIFE IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR

A child’s life is worth hoping for.

Too many children are dying, without reason:

A grandmother, standing outside the pediatric ward, cries. She was 30gdes (about $0.50) short of the money needed to buy her grandchild’s medicine. So she lost him.

A 4 year old’s parents look on as he frantically thrashes his arms around & gasps for oxygen. Nurses are tied to their seats by the assumption that the child’s parents are poor. He was already dead, in their eyes.

But a child’s life is worth hoping for! We must believe they can live. We must fight for them. A child’s life is worth hoping for.
