Children are very important asset of every nation. They are the most important part of the nation building activities. Children, in fact, are the one who builds the future of every nation. However, the unfortunate thing about children today is that they are not living their life the way they should do. The reason behind it is poverty. The poverty is the reason that there are limited resources for people all over the world. Due to these limited resources, the children are suffering in different ways. The children today are not growing well. The reason behind it is that children do not get enough food that is necessary for them to grow well. Moreover the children do not get nutritious food that is necessary for their health. They usually feed on the trash or leftover found on the road, that is the reason these children fall ill very often.

In order to help these children, there are some responsible people who are taking important steps. The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is also working for the children who suffer due to the increasing rate of poverty all over the world. As the name suggests, the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is working to help children who are suffering of different serious diseases. This research hospital was founded in 1962 by the entertainer Danny Thomas. The co-founders of this hospital were Dr Lemuel Diggs and Miami who was a close friend of Danny as well as Anthony Abraham. Danny was believer of God. He had a strong believe that there is huge power in praying. He believed if someone prays to God with all his hearth, he/she are blessed with it. He once promised St Jude that if he ever face success if his life, he will build a shrine of St Jude as a token of respect. After few years Danny was one of the most successful comedians and he realized it was time to fulfill his promise. That was the time when St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital came into being.
