Christian Charity set to spotlight World Children’s Day with virtual event

International Christian children’s charity, World Vision UK are partnering with Homecoming, a project run by national fostering and adoption charity Home for Good, to host a virtual forum to mark World Children’s Day.

The event, which will be held on the Friday 20 November at 10am, will shed light on the daily hardships children in the UK and around the world face – from education, mental health, food poverty, to protection and having a safe place to call home.

Event host Dr Krish Kandiah (Founding Director of Home for Good)will lead the discussion.

As well as hearing real-life testimonies from the children themselves, key experts will share insights to help Christian leaders understand and learn how to best serve the needs of children and young people today.

Mark Sheard, CEO World Vision UK said

“Children around the world continue to be disproportionately impacted by the aftershocks of the global pandemic. By listening to the voices of specialists and the children affected, we can better understand, empathise and be equipped to play our part in their flourishing.”

He continued

“At this uncertain time, it is important, now more than ever, to come together to share knowledge and insight, and pray for all vulnerable children around the world.”

To mitigate the immediate and longer-term impacts of COVID-19 on families and children, and to ensure the safety of children and communities, World Vision has adapted how it works with a number of essential services and supports now temporarily provided remotely where possible.

This includes remote case management, mental health and psycho-social support, gender-based violence prevention and response, parenting support, and remote learning resources and materials among other key interventions.

The global pandemic has shown that individuals, communities, and countries can face similar challenges, but these challenges are far graver in the developing world. To allow time to reflect on these experiences, World Vision UK encourages individuals, families and churches to immerse themselves in the Matthew 25 Challenge.

The week-long challenge brings to life Jesus’ call in Matthew 25: 35-40, and inspires participants to share in the experiences faced by vulnerable children and communities around the world – from sleeping on the floor as many refugees do, skipping a meal as hungry children do every day, and only drinking water as you learn about the global water crisis.
