Orphan Aid

Losing parents places a heavy burden on the lives of orphans, whether it is caused by man or nature. Orphans are most vulnerable to being exploited and mistreated due to their lack of protection and finances. Many get sold off as cheap slave labour, or worse.

Most orphans have no access to adequate housing, sanitation, food, clean water or an education. If you have not seen the situation with your own eyes it is hard to imagine the wretched conditions in which many children in Africa grow up. There are a great number of single mothers who barely manage to raise enough money to live on, as well as hundreds of thousands of orphans whose parents have died from HIV/AIDS  and other various diseases. Many of these children are adopted by relatives, whose financial means are insufficient to enable the children to be educated. Children without relatives mostly live on the streets.
