More than one in five children in the United States lives in a family struggling with poverty. The situation is urgent for these 13 million American kids. As unemployment rises and safety networks fray, World Vision and its community partners are working tirelessly to help ensure children and families in the U.S. receive the vital basics they need to get back on their feet.
Your donation will help deliver top-quality donated products to struggling American families and single mothers — like Mary. To escape her violent and abusive husband, Mary fled with her three children and sought refuge at a World Vision-supported homeless shelter.
At the shelter, Mary and her children received medical supplies, hygiene products, and more, donated from World Vision. “I feel special,” said Mary when she received these basics. “I feel appreciated.”
Mary’s son also receives play therapy at the shelter, using arts and craft supplies donated through World Vision. The therapy is especially important, since Mary's son has been diagnosed with autism.
In response to the help she’s received, Mary is reaching out to others in need by volunteering at a nearby soup kitchen. “I like to help,” she says. “I like to give back.” Her efforts prove that despite the homelessness and abuse she’s faced, this single mother has found the courage to begin putting her life back together.
You can help more hardworking Americans like Mary with your gift today!
