Orphanages

Orphanages represent the first line of defense for the children whose parents are no longer a part of their lives. These young ones are the indirect victims of war, of disease, of the economic and social pressures that have left them abandoned and without direction, unable to fend for themselves. The people and organizations providing care and nurturing to these kids give of themselves every day to help as many as they can, and there are always too many children and never enough space, food or resources to meet the need. Orphanages treat the symptoms of political corruption, lack of medicine and treatment, and injustice, and our Partner Orphanages will always be the best place to start rebuilding people, villages and cultures.
