A Homeless Boy With A Big Heart

A homeless 13-year-old Filipino won a very prestigious award for his commitment to improving the lives of fellow street kids. Cris "Kesz" Valdez, who lived off a trash dump and slept in an open tomb for the majority of his childhood, was awarded last year's International Children's Peace Prize in The Hague on September 19, receiving $130,000 in prize money.

At the age of seven, Kesz Valdez founded "Championing Community Children," a charity that raises funds to hand out necessities to street kids in Cavite City. The Championing Community Children has handed out more than 5,000 gifts, including sandals, clothes, candy and toys, to poor children living in the slums around Manila.

Kesz's message to the children of the world; "Our health is our wealth! Being healthy will enable you to play, to think clearly, to get up and go to school and love the people around you in so many ways. To everyone in the world, please remember that every day, 6,000 children die from diseases associated with poor sanitation, poor hygiene, and we can do something about it! Please join me in helping street children achieve better health and better lives.
