There are around 140 million children across the globe who have lost both of their parents and have been forced to live with other family members such as grandparents or in some case they have no option but to turn to the street.
Almost 10,000 children become orphans every day!
Estimates suggest 61 million children are orphaned in Asia and a further 52 million in Africa.Not only do these children have to bear their parents' losses, but have to tackle extreme poverty, this makes gaining an education, having healthy meals and having a comfortable childhood impossible. This poverty limits their access to education, proper shelter, clothing, and food and in some cases forces them to become homeless, where they are extremely vulnerable.
Give a vulnerable orphan the chance to break out of poverty today.
"Pakistan is home to 4.2 million orphaned children.Kashmir earthquake in 2005 raised this figure to maximum. The current adoption process in Pakistan discourages the taking in of orphans, who are left to the mercy of the state, or private charities.
