First and most importantly, in the wake of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic that is affecting our lives in such a tremendous way, I hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
I am writing to you today with an urgent request for help to support the children in our programs affected by COVID-19.
As you know, A Chance In Life works with the most vulnerable communities in Italy, Ethiopia, India and Latin America. We are committed to continuing our work helping at-risk youth in these deeply challenging times.
But as COVID-19 spreads rapidly across international borders, we are facing extreme challenges. The virus has now reached countries with weak health care systems, which are unprepared to combat the disease. Vulnerable children and those living in poverty will be hit hard by this outbreak.
As of today, an unprecedented number of children, youth and adults are not attending schools or universities because of COVID-19. Governments in 119 countries have announced or implemented the closure of educational institutions in an attempt to slow the spread of the disease. This is enormously affecting our programs.
Please make an immediate donation of $50 or more to support our work and help us respond to the consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak. Your gift will help us provide urgent aid to at-risk children and their vulnerable families and support our work in more than 10 countries worldwide.
Your donation of $50 can help us provide nutritious meals for a child for a month in Ethiopia, India, Italy or Latin America.
Our goal is to provide 3,000 meals a month to the young people we support for the duration of this crisis. Together, we can ensure that even in times of uncertainty, the world’s most vulnerable children are not forgotten.
Please respond today. We will get through this crisis. Together, anything is possible.
With much gratitude,
For 75 years, A Chance In Life has served at-risk youth around the world. A Chance In Life currently provides care and an education to over 3,000 children a year in Italy, Ethiopia, India and Latin America. We have received the highest possible ratings from Charity Navigator and Guidestar, the most-utilized evaluators of charities in the US.
