MIA Prayer Intention: for Children in Need
Today UNICEF launched thir flagship report, The State of the World’s Children 2016: A fair chance for every child.
- Over 165 million children will live on no more than US$1.90 a day, nine out of 10 of them in sub-Saharan Africa.
- Almost 70 million children under the age of 5 will die of largely preventable causes.
- 750 million women will have been married as children, perpetuating inter-generational cycles of disadvantage.
We pray for the needs of the world's children, especially those in countries enduring war, civil unrest, flood, famine and drought.
