Why should children suffer?

In this Little Stars short film we hear from leaders and experts in children’s palliative care from around the world who explain how this approach to caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening illness is more about LIVING than it is about dying. Children’s palliative care improves the quality of life of a child and that child’s family by forming a framework of support and providing the necessary expertise to ensure the child is comfortable and all their physical, social and emotional needs are addressed. Because…. why should children suffer?

We are using this film to help raise awareness of our push to establish children’s palliative care in Bangladesh through the Global Giving Gateway Challenge. Please consider a donation to help us to bring children’s palliative care to the 29 000 children who need it in Bangladesh.
