EveryChild is an international children's charity and we have a special focus. We work with children who are growing up alone, without parents to care from them. There are many reasons why children around the world end up alone, sometimes they are orphaned or are forced from their homes because of abuse but often it is the result of poverty. Whatever the reason, without the protection of a family these children are extremely vulnerable which is why we work hard to ensure they don't have to grow up alone. There are currently an estimated 24 million children struggling to survive without anyone to look after them, on the streets, in institutions, looking after their siblings or in employment. We urgently need your support to reach as many of them as possible.
