"My contribution is a drop in an ocean of distress, but I know that that drop changes the lives of many children in need. I joined Terre des hommes to fight for more justice and dignity for those children, who are so vulnerable and yet exploited so mercilessly. It is a righteous cause and I encourage you to join it with conviction, responsibility and compassion.
At Terre des hommes, each child we help has a face, a name, a history and a family. They are not just a piece of paper in a pile. Our work is a commitment, based on respect, from one human being to another. I have seen this for myself on visits to Bangladesh and India.
As a volunteer, I firmly believe that my actions really serve the cause of children in need and my greatest wish is for a maximum of them to grow up in the same conditions as our own children."
