Almost 30,000 children die each and every day from preventable diseases and malnutrition. Others go neglected, without a place to live, food to eat, medical care, the chance to go to school, loving parents, and so many other basic life necessities. In a world filled with immeasurable resources, no one should be forced to go without–especially not the most innocent and helpless of all people our world’s children.
Why Support Orphans in Bangladesh?
Bangladesh has been one of the poorest countries of the world since its inception in 1971. This country is overcrowded with poverty-stricken and disease-ridden people who daily deal with rampant unemployment and corruption. To understand how populated this country is, consider half the population of the entire United States living in a space equivalent to Iowa. The government of Bangladesh does not allow adoption in this country, so the only way to help support the underprivileged children is through orphanages and boarding schools.
When their families can’t afford to provide for them or their parents die of malnutrition or disease, thousands of children take to the streets. In fact, one in every 15 children born in Bangladesh end up on the streets to fend for themselves.
They often live in conditions that are unthinkable. Their bleak outlook, lack of proper nutrition, adequate water, shelter, and sanitation often leave these children vulnerable to the devastating influence of drugs and the ravages of disease.
We realize that everyone of us feels the need to do something meaningful for the orphans who live in dire conditions around the world. The complexities of daily living may not allow us to get involved directly. However, your financial support plays a big role in the equation of making lives better for orphans.
With many warm regards and blessings,
