The plight of Syrian children

save_the_children_syriaRiding a bicycle and surviving the perils of a brutal civil war are two very different experiences. The first I have chosen to do when I cycle the End-to-End of New Zealand in January and February of 2013. The second is an experience that can’t be avoided by thousands of people fleeing the disastrous situation in Syria. My experience will be the result of freedom of choice. The suffering of the Children in Syria is the result of an ideological conflict that they cannot control.

I feel privileged to be able to make my choices. I also feel privileged to

I hate my life.....

I hate my life…..

live in a society that has such powerful humanitarian movements like Save the Children, who facilitate care for so many millions of children around the world who do not enjoy the benefits of a peaceful environment, where their basic needs of health, love, education and nutrition are met.

After a little more than a week of fundraising for the Children in Syria, we have managed to raise £777, which represents 25% of the targeted £3000 we want to raise as a final total. I am greatly encouraged by this response. Many people are taking the cause of Syrian children to heart, and I want to thank them for their generosity.
