Program Development Africa
There are nearly 150 million children in Africa today that live in extreme poverty. Each year, almost 20% of children die before they turn 5 years old. These are just a few of the astonishing numbers that outline this impoverished region. Other key problems of this region include child trafficking, HIV/AIDS, and poor governance providing inadequate services to the public.
Program Development Poland
Poland is one of the countries in Eastern Europe where many children still grow up in orphanages, in Polish called “Dom Dziecka” meaning Child’s Home. In reality these are not homes. Although people working there try to keep it clean, safe, warm, and even attractive, an orphanage is not a home. It’s just a public institution where children are coming to from very different circumstances.
Program Development Latin America (Haiti)
Latin America and the Caribbean are widespread in poverty. Although poverty has slowed down in the past decade, distribution of wealth has developed extreme poverty among the poorest people in these regions. A region of over 225 million, 10% of the people receives 48% of all income, while the poorest receive nearly 2% of all earning income. HIV/AIDS also continues to affect this region of the world.
Where Most Needed
The 21st Century dawns onto a world where millions of orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children are living without food, without education and without hope. Most of these children will not be adopted, some of them cannot be adopted, but not one of them should be forgotten. By donating to where most needed, you are helping us give hope and spread the message of Christ.
