Universal Children's Day was on November, 20th
Every three seconds the world loses a child. Again, this year many children will not see their fifth birthday. The reasons for this tragedy are diverse; hunger, malnutrition, dirty water or the absence of vaccine protection.

International Children's Fund helps those children in need, especially in Africa.
With your donation (https://www.icfaid.com/pages/DonateNow) we can continue our work and help stop the world from needlessly losing many children every year. Thank you for your support.
And we want to give special thanks to the boy's choir Wuppertaler Kurrende (http://www.wuppertaler-kurrende.com) for supporting the idea.
This song is now available on itunes: http://bit.ly/S9zTDJ !
