【Save the Children】中環PMQ:救助兒童會100周年活動


也許我們知道幸福非必然,但慶幸我們還可以選擇──我們也許不知道沒有選擇的未來是怎樣的未來。界各地,有無數兒童活在衝突頻繁的地區,戰火摧毀了他們對未來的選擇權。

Happiness is not inevitable, yet we can still strive for it. Can you imagine a future without choices? Countless children in the world live in conflict-prone areas, and the flames of war have deprived them of their choice of future mercilessly.

在香港,我們也可以出一分力,了解他們多一點,盡一分力讓世界看見。今年是Save the Children救助兒童會成立100周年,一個世紀以來,該組織在全球保護了數以百萬計的兒童讓他們有機會發展個人潛能
為紀念此一里程碑,今年特別舉行「停戰.童希望」活動,希望透過多元方式,帶大家走到戰火最前沿,了解戰地裡兒童所面對的困境。

In Hong Kong, we can help making a difference, by understanding them a little more and raising the issue to the world. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of establishment of Save the Children. For a century, the organization has protected hundreds of millions of children around the world and given them the chance to realize their potential.
This year, the organization has dedicated a special event “Stop the War on Children” to commemorate the milestone. It is hoped that the event is able to take the public to the forefront of the war, and understand the difficult situation these children are facing in the conflict zones

 

 

停戰童希望多元體驗活動介紹

Save the Children創辦人埃格蘭泰恩.傑布(Eglantyne Jebb)曾說:每場戰爭都是對兒童的戰爭。

100年前,救助兒童會為幫助受戰禍影響的兒童而成立。百年過去,世界各地依然烽煙不絕,許多兒童過著黑暗童年。救助兒童會在成立100周年之際,特別舉行「停戰.童希望」活動,希望透過多元方式,帶大家走到戰火最前沿,了解戰地裡兒童所面對的困境。
距離或遠,境況或異,只要用心感受,就能栽下改變的種子。
