Today, 1 in 5 children live in poverty in our country. Millions of these kids have difficulty getting to a doctor for the basic vaccinations they need to attend school or for the antibiotics that can quickly clear up an illness. As a parent, imagine having to rush your child every couple of weeks to a crowded emergency room for asthma attacks because you don’t have a pediatrician to turn to.
The health and well-being of America’s children are at stake, and they need our help.
This election season, help us to urge both Presidential candidates to ensure that every child has access to proper health care and basic services.
Show your support for vulnerable children by sending a clear message to our leaders: Our children will take care of the world tomorrow, but only if we take care of them today.
