Have You heard About the Payatas?

1 comments

The children living in the huge waste dump called Payatas in Philippines are some of the worst sufferers of the growth of mankind.

The landfill in Payatas, The Philippines, is notoriously known the world over as Smokey Mountain. For over 35 years, the smoking dump site has grown to become a stark and heart-tugging reminder of the desperate onditions of humanity.

On a daily basis, children pick through newly arrived garbage to collect material to sell. The earnings made by one child are not enough to even buy food for the day. Hence, entire families are forced to climb the mountain each day, hoping to earn enough to feed everyone. Children as young as four years old are forced to work in this daily struggle for survival.

In response to the plight of these children, Totedaddy.com is working with Lighthouse Center For Children Foundation to bring a little cheer to the children this Christmas.

Totedaddy.com has kicked off with a cash sponsorship of USD 10,000 to enable the children to celebrate Christmas. FusionExcel International has also pitched in a USD 5,000 in cash sponsorship. The money raised will help fund the projects already in place, and help fund additional projects aimed at providing better housing, and a means of livelihood for the Payatas community.

It is hoped that by creating better awareness to the plight of these children, more support can be garnered towards their betterment. Together we can bury poverty!

You can also join in this charity work and help make this christmas a better one for the Children of Payatas. The children live in such deplorable conditions that the infant mortality rate is as high as 30% . Many of them are unable to go to school or even get a decent life. This appeal goes to all those around the globe who can lend a helping hand. Join in with hoards of other prominent personalities who have put in a gesture of kindness. Help to make this Christmas For Payatas a memorable one.
