World Children’s Day

World Children’s Day is marked each year on November 20 to celebrate the date when world leaders made a promise to all children, giving them their own set of rights.

Rights exist to make sure everyone is treated fairly and has the basic support they need to survive.

Children already had the same human rights as everyone else, but in November 1989 the United Nations (UN) General Assembly adopted a new proposal, designed to improve child welfare and encourage all countries to work together to build a better world for children.

This special set of rights is made up of 54 articles and is called the Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

These include, the right to:

💖Life, survival and development
💖Medical care and nutritious food
💖Get information that is beneficial – from newspapers, social media, the radio or TV etc.
💖Receive help from their government
💖Rest and play
💖Not have to do work that is dangerous
💖Be raised by, or have a relationship with, their parents if it is safe to do so
💖Think for themselves
💖Protection from violence, abuse or neglect
💖An education
💖Express their opinions, be listened to and taken seriously

Heart Heroes Wales Hub

Meet Ella.

Ella will be running our Wales Heart Heroes Hub.

I decided to get involved with Heart Heroes, in particular their Welsh Hub as I myself have congenital heart disease. Recently I was fortunate to have a baby boy, who was born without CHD, it was a 1 in 10 chance of him being born with CHD. I realised how scary that must be for parents, having their child diagnosed with such an unpredictable illness that could never be cured. I wanted to give something back and support a good friend with her charity, Heart Heroes. On speaking to Kelly, we quickly realised the lack of provision within Wales, I live in Bridgend so have offered to help run the Wales Hub, where I run coffee mornings and will be looking to organise fundraising events.

 
Heart Heroes were not around when I was a child and I firmly believe had myself and my family had their support from a young age I would have coped better through my childhood and into my adulthood, as I would have had friends in a similar position to me, people to share my emotions and worries with. Instead I now struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder from all of my procedures and so I hope that by helping families to connect through Heart Heroes that we can reduce the impact that CHD had on everybody’s life.
