Every child needs a family
Some time ago, we proposed to a group of children from a residential institution to play a game – from a list of 10 persons, they had to choose 3 persons to be saved from a wild island. There was a pregnant woman among the 10 people, and we expected the children to have a special attitude towards the future mother and baby. We believed she would be saved first.A 12 years old boy, however, excluded the pregnant women first from the list, saying “anyway, she will give birth and will abandon the baby…”
For over 11 years, we at CCF Moldova (Child Community Family) have been trying to change this situation. We are working hard to bring about things that will lead to normality in our society, namely, the love between parents and children, affection, warmth, sympathy, and understanding in the home, and the well-being of families, even those experiencing severe poverty.
This is possible, but it is not easy. We need people, time, resources and the right attitude.
We believe that this story will convince you of a simple truth – Every Child needs a family! We believe in this change, and we also believe that we will only reach this goal by working together.
