The purpose of life has famously been said "to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well". The purpose of my birthday is to contibute to this purpose.
I therefore want to ask you to help me this year to contribute to "Save the Children", because children in need accross the globe really need our help.
In Yemen, in particular, due to a civil war since 2015, more than 24 million people — including 12.3 million children — need humanitarian assistance and protection. At least 400,000 (!) Yemeni children under 5 risk to die of starvation this year, not yet taking into account deaths resulting from bombing and diseases (not only covid-19 but also cholera and others).
While we, as individuals, are unable to stop the civil war, we have the power to help these children in need and avoid them suffering and dying from preventable causes. Help me achieve my goal for this year: for the children. Sometimes a little help really goes a long way.
