Cerrie Burnell, as seen on CBeebies, is supporting Thai Children's Trust UK's new Junior Sponsorship campaign, which encourages children to sponsor an orphan in Thailand and teaches them the joy and experience of giving to those less fortunate than them.
“I am delighted to help Thai Children’s Trust with its Junior Sponsorship campaign to support orphaned, disadvantaged and vulnerable children in Thailand and surrounding countries,” said Cerrie. "The need for these abandoned children on the Thai Burma border is acute. Through no fault of their own they have had a tough start in life and, with love and care, can become valuable citizens of tomorrow.
“Every child deserves a happy childhood and children with no parental support need extra support to take part in and benefit from early years activities, song, music and movement, which all little ones enjoy.
“I’m sure having a sponsored friend on the other side of the world would be of benefit to British children. It would help them grow up with a real understanding of the life of another child her own age who lives in a very different part of the world.”
The Thai Children’s Trust is the largest UK charity focusing on Thailand, supporting projects in Pattaya, Rayong, Nong Khai, the south and the west of Thailand. Over 3,000 children rely on them for a home, education, a future, and most of all, for the knowledge that they are loved. They make sure these children get a chance in life.
