Kid's At Home Of Hope
Studies have consistently shown that orphanage care often exposes children to serious harm, neglect and abuse, can seriously impact a child’s physical and psychological development, and is often much.
AIDS and other diseases, armed conflict, natural disasters, forced displacement and extreme poverty leave millions of children orphaned, separated, or on the brink of family breakdown.
Moments With Our At Home Of Hope
Orphans, or the young children who have lost both their parents to death, and have been left to fend for themselves are truly among the most vulnerable in our society. Even worse are the children who have been abandoned by their parents, forced to live the life of orphans despite having living parents. As young kids, most people enjoy the privilege of being nurtured, loved, and cared for by their mother and father—a luxury denied to the orphans who struggle to rebuild their young lives without any parental support.
