Mozambique Refugee Camps - Be A Hero

Recurring drought, flooding during rainy seasons with 5 inch plus thick mud that regularly closes roads and makes it virtually impossible to move around, water pollution from urban waste such as sewerage and industrial wastes; degradation of water quality from increased use of pesticides and fertilizers; water hyacinth infestation in Lake Victoria; deforestation; soil erosion; desertification; poaching, just a few of the challenges the Kenyans face each day of their life. To face having to drink water that you can visibly see disease floating in is an everyday reality, a bottle of water is a luxury they can not imagine.

What is Be A HERO?
Be A HERO is an international charity working to raise up an Army of Heroes for an urgent global crisis – endangered children. We believe that everyone has a dream of doing something significant with his or her life. We connect everyday, ordinary people with opportunities to change the world, in small ways, and in large ways - one child at a time.

Be A HERO is a not-for-profit organisation with a mandate to educate, inspire, equip and facilitate people of all ages to “Be A HERO” to the 1.2 billion children at risk due to poverty, homelessness, child labour, slavery, sexual exploitation, aids and plagues, war and religious persecution.

Who Can Be A HERO?
We want to enlist everyone to the mission of mercy and social justice – caring for children suffering as a result of poverty, child labour, slavery, homelessness, sexual exploitation, aids and plagues, and war.

As Mother Theresa said, "We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."

Be A HERO representatives worldwide present the plight of children at risk to hundreds of audiences, large and small, every year, supported by our offices in Canada, USA, Australia, and the Philippines.

Be A HERO provides compassionate people with step-by-step directions on

  • how to gather those in their sphere of influence and, together,
  • do something life-saving and life-transforming! Today, many ‘heroes’ all around the world are making a significant difference in the lives of those in crisis by a myriad of positive contributions.  Be A Hero will re-ignite the latent desire within every human being to "Be a Hero" in the lives of those who are less fortunate, and create a continuing movement of volunteerism on behalf of those who are dear to the heart of God - the poorest of the poor
