Day 8: Safe Places

Imagine if your child didn’t have a place to play. In the developing world, the poorest families live in unsafe homes pieced together with scraps of plastic, cardboard or tin, and open sewage is often a problem. Children don’t have safe places to play, learn or study, and their parents work long hours.
