Mc dermottdaniel vis1 Mc dermottdaniel vis1 Presentation Transcript

  • In 2005 the United Nations estimated that there are 500 million children under 14 living in Africa.
  • Unfortunately, about 120 thousand of these children have been taken from their homes, brainwashed, and turned into ruthless killers, or what we call child soldiers.
  • Many are also encouraged to drink and do drugs so that they are more impervious to fear on the battlefield.
  • After their ‘training’ is finished the real horror begins when they are unleashed into battle.
  • Organizations like Invisible Children and Amnesty International have programs that can be donated to that rehabilitate children and help prevent atrocities like this from happening in the future.
    However, there is hope.
  • As Americans, we have the means and moral duty to help.
    Donate now.
