For children living on the streets, hide and seek is a dangerous game.
Tonight, a young boy will lay a sheet of newspaper on the concrete floor of a dusty train station. His bed for the night. He can only hope he’s well hidden from the dangers that lurk in the shadows.
Child traffickers, violent gangs and sexual predators all prey on children who are alone, sleeping on the streets. This is no place for a child.
Children are forced to live on the streets for various reasons. Some are escaping violence at home, others have no home at all. They are all being forced to grow up too fast.
With your support, we can reach more children and protect them from the dangers of life on the streets.
You can help give these children the childhood they deserve – free from violence, abuse and harm.
