Children at Risk Foundation CARF

I have been following the work of

Gregory Smith

, who is a documentary photographer for the Children at Risk Foundation CARF. His photos of street children are beautiful and a sad reminder that so many of these kids face rather uncertain futures. Where it not for the efforts of organizations such as CARF, one wonders how many a life would end prematurely. I am always thrilled when I see an image of a child that has been given an opportunity to go to school, have a home and given an opportunity for a better future.

Brazil has an unaccounted number of kids living on its streets. A good figure is: thousands too many.
They are exposed to all sorts of violence: drugs; sex abuse, murder.
Every new day these children wake up to a nightmare.
You can change much of that sad World record.
Our beloved Hummingbird Project works to prevent street boys and street girls from happening.
Hummingbird assists almost 600 at-risk community children and former street kids.
Its been around for 14 years.
They provide food, art and education, health, culture, sports, love and a new life to those kids.

Around Christmas time there are thousands of organizations that ask for donations, but I am going to add this here just in case someone is willing to forgo the large cup of gourmet coffee at Starbucks and instead spend at least $10 for a good cause....

It's a sad, sad world...

These are images of the kids who have nothing to smile about.

Please make a

donation!
