An open letter ......
ACCV has always been very personal for me, right from the start...
I'm just a mum, who relates to other mum's, who have sick or blind children, and very limited options. When the going gets tough, and sometimes it does, I imagine that if I was living in poverty and I met this Australian women with access to resources to help my child, I'd want her to keep going and do what she had to do to help us.
I had no idea that ACCV would grow as it has, or that we would meet more than 700 children with chronic diseases such as Diabetes & CAH going untreated. Due to poverty.
This is just astounding. A couple of weeks ago a little girl we sponsor died from untreated diabetes, aged 8.
We have met many children suffering with CAH because they are not receiving the necessary medication.
We are trying to connect the people who can help with the people who need help. So I have written this open letter.
Please pass it along to anyone you think may be interested.
