Introduction about me:
I am Petrishia, from India. My interest to help for a child’s welfare arises from seeing many lives that are still in poverty, especially being brought up in a rural place in India, it became one of my passions and responsibilities to care for the life of children. Upon completing my undergraduate in India, I moved to the United Kingdom to pursue my Masters, where I was surprised to see many children suffers in poverty. This made me take decision that I must continue to do my help for child even in the UK
More than 10% of child in UK lives in poverty. The poverty level has been increased over time in the UK. Failing to address child’s poverty leads to affect the life of an child. Many charities and many government policies have come up to decrease the poverty line.

Importance of charity:
Everyone must be aware of charity, especially for the purpose of child charity, which can help a child’s life right from the early stage. By creating an environment to generously provide for the welfare of the supportless child. By dropping money in the charity boxes, by providing food for them are some of the ways to contribute to the children. Giving is more impactful than anything. Giving has the purpose to fulfill and satisfies the needs of others.
My contribution and what made me donate for charity:
Many children in various part of the world is affected by some kind of poverty. Due to the highly unaffordable condition of the family, the child end up not having proper education and even food. One of the places in India where I came across a girl who is taking care of flocks of ducks, when I went ahead and spoke to her I was overwhelmed with tears and got to know that she had never gone to school and only have food in one time a day. This was just one, there were many children in the same village with no parents, no food, no water, no education. That was the moment i decided to contribute my part for a good cause. Through my church in UK i sponsor a child in Uganda every month for her education, food and importantly for her bright future.
