Mercy Home for Boys & Girls is all about improving the welfare of children in need — it’s our number one priority. Our safe, nurturing home helps kids heal from years of abuse and neglect, so they can go on to lead healthy, productive lives.
That’s why, today, we celebrate Universal Children’s Day — a day to promote international awareness and togetherness in effort to improve the lives of children the world over. This days encourages children of different backgrounds to spend time together and appreciate each other’s differences. The day also urges governments to pay closer attention to the welfare of their youngest citizens.
Founded by the United Nations in 1954, Universal Children’s Day offers an inspirational point of entry to advocate and promote children’s rights. Hopefully, these initiatives spark conversations and actions that lead to a better future for children.
So, take time today to celebrate the children in your life and do something special with them — maybe a trip to their favorite museum, the zoo, or their favorite playground.
Or, consider a truly meaningful action that will leave lasting impact by donating to Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.
