Scraping a Living

Description

Pray today for children who are facing oppressive circumstances.

Mining is one of the worst forms of child labor. The heavy work can permanently damage a growing child’s bones and muscles. Minerals mined are often hazardous and exposure to uranium and mercury can have profound health effects.

Psalm 129:1 “they have greatly oppressed me from my youth…”

Pray today for children who are facing oppressive circumstances.
