Anyone whose heart goes out to those on the planet less fortunate than we are can only be in awe of the program put into action by David Dionisi. With Children of Compassion, a non-profit organization, David involves American school kids in the life-changing experience of rescuing children in Africa. Some of these children in Liberia and Sierra Leone are suffering from the aftermath of the Ebola epidemic which wiped out entire families. What I got to witness on November 3rd was for me the memorable event of a lifetime: Imagine, seeing happy Liberians singing and dancing, as if in the same room with Roseville High School students who, through their heart-warming efforts, had brought them food supplies and wheelchairs.
The Children of Compassion books come with discussion guides, lesson plans for teachers, a video version of the book, and the option to interact with people in Africa. Click here to see the complete list of books.

Due to the kindness of students in the United States, Prince Queewon received his first wheelchair. Shown on the left is Prince dragging himself on the ground. He moved in this way his entire life until November 2017 when he received the wheelchair shown on the right.
A community of disabled people in Liberia, Africa were struggling to survive. When students at Roseville High School learned about this, they raised money to deliver an emergency aid package. Shown in the picture is the food delivered!
