Any parent reading this knows what it feels like to see the light of understanding coming on in the eyes of their child. At Child Aid, we see that lightbulb I mourn for the lights going dark as these migrant children languish, separated from their parents and threatened with the cessation of the small opportunities they have to maintain hope and the small normalcy of educational activities.
Now is the time to spend our money, time and know-how reaching people in great need with tried and true interventions—including educational resources for children. This approach is a smarter and more sustainable plan forward than spending billions of dollars building a wall or terrorizing immigrants. It’s also more humane.
