WHY VULNERABLE CHILDREN BECOME ORPHANS
The most frequent causes of separation of children from parental care include poverty, lack of access to basic services, abuse, neglect, disease, disabilities, and emergencies. Many vulnerable children can continue to live with family at home with programs designed to provide hope and stability.
THE COST OF BEING ORPHANED
Lack of ability to make deep social and emotional connections to others.
Diminished individuality and lack of ability to see how God uniquely created them.
Not prepared as a parent, spouse or worker when they're too old for institutional care.
