Thank you so much for considering giving me a birthday present! ;) Sometimes we get a little too comfortable in our day to day routines and forget there are loads of people out there who need help. I thought this would be a good way to spread a little happiness on the day when I'm usually happiest! =)
But this can't be done without you. Check out the charities below, and spread a little love.
Charities Sanya is Supporting
Save the Children
Millions of people, most of them innocent children, are at risk in drought-stricken East Africa – at least until the rains come in about 100 days. Too many children – especially vulnerable to malnutrition and dehydration – have already perished.
Save the Children is providing emergency nourishment to save lives. Donate a dollar a day for 100 days to help save a child's life.
We're all the same - we need food, shelter, water, a little hope. Reading about the famine in East Africa and seeing pictures of starving, dying children in Somalia have given me a harsh reality check over the past couple of months . Can there really be over 29,000 children dead for want of food a few countries away? Can just a dollar be the difference between life and death? I choose to believe so. And children are the future, which is why I chose this charity. Can you help tip the scales for life instead of death?
Human Appeal International
Human Appeal International is an NGO dedicated to serving those in need, around the world, around the clock. Currently, they are taking donations for the emergency in East Africa, along with the Syrian refugee crisis.
I like the fact that this charity doesn't just provide emergency aid, but works to create sustainable and long-term projects to provide independence for the affected people. Yet, right now, the focus is on giving those in need in East Africa and those who have no homes in Syria. That's where the appeal is most urgent and that's where you and I can help and make a difference.
Vital Voices helps identify, invest in and bring visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities.
Dr Hawa Abdi was featured in Newsweek recently. I read about her extraordinary work caring for 90,000 displaced persons, mostly women and children, who survived the violence in war-ravaged Somalia. Dr Abdi's camp is currently supporting those who have been affected by the drought in the country and is working every day so that women can reclaim their freedoms and opportunities lost to war, famine and extremism.
