Illness, bereavement, discrimination and poverty can make life perilously tough for children and their families. Children are at risk of malnutrition, dropping out of school, whilst those with long term illnesses such as HIV are at risk of deteriorating health. Children are at risk of neglect, abandonment and abuse.
Right Now for children works with the most vulnerable children and their families. We help children and families in tribal villages who are living in extreme poverty escape the cycle of poverty, and we support children infected with HIV who are suffering ill health and malnutrition. We provide health, nutritional and educational support for children. Supporting them so that they are healthy, can go to school and stay in the care of their families.
