As heartbreaking as this sounds, it’s a harsh reality that orphans all over the world are being deprived of education, healthcare, and a decent home.
Unfortunately, nowadays, more children than ever face several problems, such as malnutrition, infant and child mortality, HIV/AIDS, child abuse, and neglect. It’s estimated that over 1 billion children do not receive enough food. The child mortality rate in India is 55%. Fewer than 50% of kids living in some regions of Africa are immunized against important diseases like measles.
So, if you’re looking for ways to play your role in helping the underprivileged kids, and donate to charity for orphans in India, the Philippines, and Africa, now is the time!
If you want to make a difference on this special day, here are some ways to do so:
1. Help feed hungry children through your workplace, church, or school
It’s easy to forget that many children around the world are not just hungry but also malnourished. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 120 million children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition.
You can help by making donations to organizations such as Orphan Life Foundation as we promise to provide food for these children. Your valuable donations will go towards buying food and other essentials, such as clothes and toys for the children in need.
2. Provide access to education to underprivileged children
World Children’s Day is a great occasion for helping children around the world who are less fortunate than others, especially those living in poverty or without adequate education. This is a perfect opportunity for donors and supporters of charity organizations to give back to society. The donations will improve their lives and help them excel in their future careers, and make them less vulnerable to other social problems.
3. Protect children from abuse, exploitation, and neglect
Child protection laws are in place to protect children from abuse. But these laws are often not enforced properly. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) estimates that nearly 1 million children die every year because of preventable causes related to poverty and conflict-related violence around the world. In addition to this, more than 20 million children go through physical and sexual violence each year due to poverty and marginalization.
So, if you’re able to help an abused child, you can make a difference.
4. Support orphanages and other institutions that care for vulnerable children
Around the world, there are millions of children who are vulnerable to abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Others die from preventable diseases that could be treated if they had access to basic health care.
Your donation to Orphan Life Foundation will enable many children to avoid the deadly illness and ensure they have access to food, housing, and other necessities to be healthy and secure.
