A Loaf of Bread and a Bag of Coal


What do your children dream of? New toys? Ponies?

Imagine if they lived in such extreme poverty that their only dreams were to have a day without hunger.

A day without work. A day without shivering from the cold.

How is it fair that these innocent children forced to live in tents within “camps” have so little that a loaf of bread is a dream?

Bread to eat and coal to stay warm.

On some days these things are achieved.

Most days they are not.
