world over as
site has grown to become a stark and heart-tugging reminder of the
desperate conditions of humanity.
On a daily basis, children pick through newly arrived garbage to
collect material to sell. The earnings made by one child are not
enough to even buy food for the day. Hence, entire families are forced
to climb the mountain each day, hoping to earn enough to feed
everyone. Children as young as four years old are forced to work in
this daily struggle for survival.
In response to the plight of these children, Totedaddy.com is working
with Lighthouse Center For Children Foundation to bring a little cheer
to the children this Christmas.
Totedaddy.com has kicked off with a cash sponsorship of USD 10,000 to
enable the children to celebrate Christmas. FusionExcel International
has also pitched in a USD 5,000 in cash sponsorship. The money raised
will help fund the projects already in place, and help fund additional
projects aimed at providing better housing, and a means of livelihood
for the Payatas community.
It is hoped that by creating better awareness to the plight of these
children, more support can be garnered towards their betterment.
Together we can bury poverty!
