"Even when things were hard, I now realize how much that love, care and protection existed around me and strengthened me." Countless community-based organizations are extending emotional support to children and families not sufficiently reached by government or international agencies. This is a guest post by Jennifer Lentfer of how-matters.org on REPSSI's blog.

Acknowledgements: All children deserve love, care and protection. REPSSI works with NGOS and governments to lessen the devastating social & emotional (psychosocial) effects of poverty, conflict, HIV/AIDS among vulnerable children.
