No childhood should be one of silence.
When a baby in an orphanage cries nobody comes to comfort them. As a result, they learn not to cry; internalising their pain, causing lifelong mental and physical damage. Deprived of love, deprived of life. Left to grow up without laughter, without music, without hope. Left there, children will never experience the love and protection only a family can offer.
End the Silence, supported by YouTube, is asking everyone to share the most precious musical memories from their childhood. By joining the world’s leading music talent in adding your musical memory, you will be helping to end the silence for the 8million children confined to orphanages around the world.
Every pound donated to the End the Silence campaign before the 27th December will be doubled by the UK Government. Together we can look forward to a day when every child grows up surrounded by love, family and music.
Together we can End the Silence.
