Life For Everyone Has Been Tough

The Duke of Sussex has said that vulnerable children shouldn’t be ignored amid the global COVID 19 crisis.

The father of one, who remains the patron of WellChild, a charity for seriously ill children, said he’s spoken with the families the organisation supports in a letter attached to their impact report for 2020.

The Duke said that life for everyone has been tough, but that as we continue to battle the health crisis, the current needs of vulnerable children shouldn’t be ignored.

The report details how last year, the charity provided more than 289,000 PPE items to families in the United Kingdom to ensure that carers could safely come to their homes, and how it adapted to provide digital resources for families who were forced to isolate.

Harry acknowledges that it’s taken a constant, coordinated effort across communities and countries to get themselves to a point where they can fight the virus.

He also said the charity’s response to the pandemic shows precisely why WellChild was so close to his heart.

He said that he was especially proud to say that WellChild had moved with urgency and determination to tackle the new challenges that children with complex needs and their families have endured because of the crisis.

He said that life for everyone has been tough, but for these families, it’s been tougher than most of us can imagine and that as the battle is continued because of the health crisis, the current needs of vulnerable children shouldn’t be forgotten.

He said that WellChild is a lifeline for so many people and has had to redirect much of its funding resources during the pandemic and that they must make sure that young people with serious health conditions continue to get the support they require as the country recovers, rebuilds and works to return to normal life.

WellChild lost 60 per cent of its projected income in 2020 because events were cancelled and financial constraints grew for sponsors.

In the Impact Report, one WellChild Children’s Nurse also wrote that this had been the hardest and saddest of years for lots of NHS workers, but on the days she’s feeling low and miss her friends and family, she reminds herself of the daily challenges children and young people with complex health needs and their families face.

WellChild provides a national network of children’s nurses, who work with families to ensure that children with complex care needs can leave the hospital and get the care they require at home.

However, if Harry was that concerned about these vulnerable children, he wouldn’t have spent $7,000 on a playhouse for his son Archie, but would have used that money more prudently for vulnerable children – his son could have played on a playhouse for $200 just as easily.

And why would any child need a playhouse, when they have a mansion to play in, and this just seems like another publicity stunt to keep him in the media.

But then maybe he does care for the children all over the world, not just in America and here in the United Kingdom, but let’s face it, he does have the best life he’s ever had, and he makes all the appropriate noises, saying what the public wants to hear – he’s a great self-promoter, but then his mother raised awareness and millions of pounds for numerous charities – he clearly takes after Diana, but would this man even have a clue about having it tough, I think not!

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
