CHILDREN AT RISK: united states
Every eight seconds another child is born in America. However, according to UNICEF, millions of children across the nation are facing issues of abuse, oppression, and other damaging situations. A vast percentage of children are facing disadvantages that are causing damages to their mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Given they are so young, these situations are contributing to them facing a lifetime of toxicity and developmental hardship. In order to make for a better nation we must give them the support and guidance they need to evolve and lead the healthy and happy lives they deserve. The efforts we make in order to help our children will determine not only their futures, but the state of humanities.
