The plight of children in Nepal is desperate. Many are without food, on the streets and/or unable to go to school because they are too poor. Fifty percent of the children are malnourished and only a quarter of them live with adequate sanitation. There are 2.6 million child laborers in Nepal.
Medical care is often nonexistent and many children do not attend school at all or drop out before finishing high school equivalent. Due to the increasingly economy and devastating effects of the recent political conflict and civil war, there are more children without parents to care for them.
The needs of children are great in Nepal and there is much to do to help. The Mitrata motto is “Children First, They are our Future”. Please join the Mitrata family and help save the life of a child in Nepal. You can truly make a difference!
