Helping Children Living in Extreme Poverty in the
United States, Venezuela, and Globally
Grow Up Healthy, Happy and Safe
We the Children is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children who are living in extremely poor conditions to recover their health, happiness, and hope. The economic difficulties are affecting the most vulnerable – children and youth.
Our Mission is to provide food, medicine, and medical care to vulnerable children in poverty and to help them to grow healthy and happy.
Our Vision is to see children grow up healthy, happy and safe.
In the United States
For over ten years, We the Children has helped children with cancer and life-threatening illnesses receive the medical care they need. In addition, we help children in poverty in the United States through donations of food, clothing, and other essentials.
We the Children is responding to the dire situation of extreme poverty around the world. We provide food, milk, supplements, water, medicine and vaccinations, and medical assistance to help families and children overcome crises and poverty and grow up healthy. We the Children sends children meals with the nutrients and calories necessary for their development and growth, provides clothing and supplies to children in need, and helps children access medical care. We currently assist children in Venezuela, Chad, Lebanon, Mali, Albania, Uganda, and El Salvador.
Transforming Lives in Venezuela
The situation in Venezuela is dire – the country is experiencing a severe economic crisis, hyperinflation, frequent power outages, water shortages, and chronic and severe food and medicine shortages. This situation is taking an extreme toll on the most vulnerable children and youth in Venezuela. We are saving and transforming children’s lives, minimizing children’s risk, and fighting against illness and childhood poverty in Venezuela.
