Global Patron 
We are proud to introduce Laura, who lives in Florida, USA. Laura has been a supporter of Eye of the Child for five years. 

“I donate because it takes so little to make a difference in the lives of boys and girls. The work of Eye of the Child helps change the trajectory of the lives of so many. Somewhere in the survivors are doctors, scientists, teachers and more. I hope to help them reach their potential.”
