BAM InternationalGeorge's farewell
It is a sad fact of life that the most innocent and vulnerable tend to suffer the most in times of conflict, children. I am living proof of the generosity and compassion of strangers as my father was a conflict orphan at the age of 6.
We take our wellbeing and security for granted in the developed world mostly because we are not exposed to such hardship.
I would ask that anyone who is thinking about donating for a farewell gift to me should contribute this towards the War Child charity, a far worthier cause than myself.
I sincerely thank you for any contribution.
Instead of a gift, George prefers to support War Child, a Dutch charity organisation which works exclusively to improve the resilience and wellbeing of children living with violence and armed conflict. Unfortunately, the fund raising page is only in Dutch but please find below an explanation how to donate.
