Today I want to tell you more about the Lorna Byrne Children’s Foundation. The reason I created this Foundation is that the angels always tell me that children of the world today really need our help. It is so important that we show children everywhere more empathy even though I know it can sometimes be hard in the world we live in. We must never forget that children are the future and that if we don’t help the children in our world, the cost will be incalculable, and will be paid for by future generations of humanity. I believe all children, no matter what their background, deserve to have a happy, safe childhood and a bright future. But thanks to your support, children’s lives have already been changed!
What does the Foundation do?
I started this Foundation a little over four years ago. Since then you’ve helped children in so many ways. You’ve given children a chance at an education, given their families seeds to regrow their future, lent a listening ear when they needed it most, brought them back to their families and so much more. You have been a big amazing unseen force of positive change sweeping through some very desperate situations.
Thanks to all of your wonderful help, the Lorna Byrne Children’s Foundation is a huge opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of children who right now are suffering due to war, devastation, poverty or illness. We fund amazing initiatives and projects in Ireland and across the globe, run by charities and grassroots organisations, which support children in extremely vulnerable and marginalised situations. These initiatives are changing the lives of vulnerable children around the world for the better. Let me tell you a little bit more about one of the projects we fund.
Narrative 4’s Empathy project in Limerick, Ireland
This programme is helping children to learn about empathy in two schools in extremely disadvantaged areas of Limerick. Through story exchange, they are learning how to understand each other, how to be kind and gentle, and ultimately make their communities a better place. I wanted to share with you the beautiful testimony of Alex, a previous student of this programme: “It’s definitely changed me, I definitely realise that other people are going through something and I wouldn’t have thought about that before”.
To read about all of our projects, past and present, and see how your wonderful support has already helped us, you can visit this page on the Foundation website.
