Let's Have Some Fun!
For many children in disaster zones and underserved communities, they face stressors beyond their age. When not properly addressed, these stressors can have a long-term effect on children's health and psychological development.

Research has shown, providing children with psychosocial activities for children to express their feelings, be kids, and have fun can help children deal with the difficulties they face. 
Bringing Water to Ghana
70% of all diseases in Ghana are caused by unsafe water & poor sanitation.

In Ghana, close to six million people rely on surface water to meet their daily water needs, leaving them vulnerable to water-related illness and disease. 

Water is the foundation to the first steps of development and has immediate impact on every part of rural life. Each of our wells can serve up to 2,000 people’s basic daily needs. 
Jordan Medical Campaign
In Jordan, 90% of refugee families and orphaned children who live in underserved and poor communities, cannot afford the cost of medical care and vaccinations. The Mercy Without Limits team in Jordan conducted an assessment to find out the best ways to support and give children access to medical services.
Daraa Emergency Relief
On June 19, airstrikes, shelling, and ground attacks tore into Daraa, destroying hospitals, targeting civilians, and displacing more than 330,000 Syrians — the largest displacement since the Syrian war began. According to reports, 159 civilians were killed, including 33 children. Over 350,000 civilians fled to the boarders which were sealed. 
 
Meanwhile, hundreds of families found themselves without shelter, sleeping in the desert under the open sky without sufficient food, drinkable water, or medical access.
