No, not the Olympics, but the end of term for most of the UK’s school children. For my daughter and her friends, their biggest concern is whether it will stop raining long enough for them to play outside this summer.
But for children like Halima and her family, who don’t know even know where their next meal will come from, that kind of concern is an unimaginable luxury.
Lots of parents tell us that the reason they sponsor a child with ActionAid is to help their children understand how different their lives are to children their age living in poverty.
Writing letters to your sponsored child is something to keep them occupied even if it does keep raining!
Wouldn’t it be nice if Halima and other kids like her could enjoy a carefree childhood, with regular meals, a decent education and nothing more to worry about than waiting for the sun to come out so they can go for a nice bike ride?
This year, ActionAid hopes to find sponsors for 11,000 children from the poorest communities around the world. Could you be one?
