Newsletter: Abandoned Children

Abandoned Children (New Year 2003/2004)

tells of children fending for themselves in the face of danger and disease not only without adequate material resources but also without the love and emotional support that all human beings need to survive. But as well as of the horrors, articles tell of the work being done: the provision of refuges and day care for children in Brazil, Bolivia and Argentina, Burundi and Rwanda; the work of a church in Estonia to repair the building and use it as a centre for hungry and neglected children; the work of organisations in Scotland and England where even in such wealthy countries run away children and children in care need vital support.

Newsletter: Children and Work

Children and Work (Trinity 2003)

In 2003, the International Labour Organisation estimated there were 246 million working children aged between 5 and 17. Although some tasks can teach important skills, for millions their work is dangerous and destructive, depriving them of their childhood, if not their life. Articles from India, Malawi, Uganda, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Sri Lanka, China, USA, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and Scotland show the international nature of such exploitation of children and work being done - often linked with churches - to help them.
