You might sometimes wonder how children grow up with so much violence and deprivation in their lives. But again and again, we’re amazed at the resilience of children and the impact caring adults can make—parents, teachers, our partners in Palestine and Lebanon, along with supporters like you.

Please take a moment to look at MECA’s 10 favorite photos from this year. We hope to inspire you and show you how your support makes a real impact on children and families living in difficult circumstances.

Many thanks from all of us at MECA!
