Give a child like Emma the chance to finally feel safe.

Emma* and her mum had to flee their home, fast. On Christmas Day, her father began drinking heavily again. After attacking her mum, he passed out from the alcohol. When he fell asleep, Emma and her mum fled for safety. There was no time to pack Emma's Christmas presents, her beloved books or even her toothbrush.

But when Emma and her mother arrived at the refuge, there was a special Buddy Bag waiting for her. It showed Emma she was welcome and cared for. And let her know she was finally safe.

That's the difference your gift can make – helping children like Emma finally feel safe. Please donate today.
*This is a true account, but the names have been changes to protect Emma's safety and privacy.
