My family? With my father or my mother?

Step into the hearts of the children from broken families

 

Christmas is a festival of love and joy. Every child wishes to receive Christmas presents, be it a piece of toy or stationery, it is love that warms everyone’s heart. The way children express love is way more direct and simple than adults. When they care about you, they take the initiative to ask about you. When they love you, they give something precious to you. 

 

According to the statistics released by the Census and Statistics Department, there were 17,196 cases of divorces in 2016 and the divorce rate was 34.3%. With increasing number of divorced families, more children have to face disappointment and sadness alone. Ongoing conflicts between parents seriously affect children’s confidence and self-esteem.        

 

The Salvation Army Youth, Family & Community Services identifies families in crisis and provides timely and appropriate support and assistance. This appeal will present inner feelings of the children from broken families in various aspects. In each case, social workers help children to channel their emotions, their parents to understand their children’s needs and think about their role as parents.  

 

We invite you to support The Salvation Army community care services. Through a wide array of supports and counselling services, we provide assistance to families in crisis and take care of children from families in need. This will be a Christmas blessing filled with much love and happiness.
