“The work of Defense for Children is important to me because DCI works on issues that are not necessarily ‘sexy’, yet are the core of children’s safety and wellbeing. Demanding policymakers to take responsibility of what’s happening to children who on the move, or in prison. These children they need to be heard and their rights need to be upheld. The fact that DCI works both at micro and at macro level, e.g. with individual migrant children as well as give input to policy making at a global level, makes them unique. What they do is far from easy, but they keep at it, with dogged determination. With people on the ground, many of them volunteers, they gather these stories and data from all over the world and report on it. I admire them and have decided to support DCI’s mission by contributing some of my time and money. I hope many people will join me in supporting them. Because every child has a right to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment, to use her/his voice and to lead a fulfilling life. …”
