Each year thousands of children and teenagers are left to cope with multiple issues around death without the support they need and deserve. Who can measure the impact of this on their education and wider social, emotional and spiritual development? That’s why the work of AtaLoss.org is so important: acknowledging their pain, working to meet their need and helping them move forward.
