Help Street Child support thousands of EBola-affected children
We’re sure you remember the tragic scenes in West Africa caused by Ebola last summer; just over a year later and around 15,000 children have been orphaned and thousands more left traumatised and vulnerable to exploitation. Without the chance to go to school, young children – girls in particular - run a higher risk of being forced into parenthood or even prostitution.
Street Child Ambassador Nick Hewer recently launched our Legacy of Ebola Appeal through interviews like this one on ITV's Loose Women. Now he's asking the incredible mums of Mumsnet and your families to help these vulnerable children regain their childhood. Children are amazing, surprising and resilient… but they also need support, guidance and love.
Watch our film to understand more (it's very emotional) and, if you feel inspired, please consider donating to this worthwhile appeal.

Your gift can have a huge impact on our projects in West Africa:
+ As little as £15 would help us provide emergency feeding for a child at risk of reduced food security
+ £5 a month will help us send a child to school for a year
+ £10 a month would be enough to help a family create a small business to look after their child long into the future
