Your overall health and quality of sleep are connected — when you don't get a good night's rest, you're more at risk for getting sick. Studies also show that children who sleep less have a greater risk of obesity and lower cognitive ability, which affect their performance in school.
In many impoverished communities around the world, kids must share small beds — sometimes just a mattress or pad — with their siblings or parents. Get a peek into the homes of some of our sponsored kids and where they sleep: https://www.children.org/stories/2016/…/where-children-dream
THANK YOU! From all of us on #TeamCI, for helping #createhope for girls in honor of International Women’s Day! Together, we reached our goal of giving life-changing opportunities to girls in need through child sponsorship. By coming together to support girls, we are helping them overcome the obstacles of poverty and gender inequality to build a stronger future and a better world.
