We also believe in the power of collective action. Experience has shown us that when ordinary people -
people like you and me – join hands, there is no problem we can’t overcome, no task that is too difficult.
Working together we can achieve what mighty governments cannot.
You can help enable irreversible change in the lives of underprivileged children and ensure they enjoy their right to a happy and healthy childhood by joining CRY NY.
