OUR THEMES

THEME

ORPHAN CARE

The classic definition of an orphan is a child (under the age of eighteen) who has lost both parents. The World Health Organization and the United Nations now include children who have lost only one parent. Today, there are approximately 153 million orphans worldwide (18 million are double orphans). These numbers are highest in regions affected by armed conflict and/or with little access to medical care. In these places, children lose one or both parents due to violence, illness, or accidental death. Orphans in these circumstances are often left to fend for themselves, or become the caregivers of their siblings at a very young age. 

Awareness and assistance can help orphans to become healthy, contributing members of society. In the month of Agust Kutoa will be partnering with organizations that seek to provide children with an education, healthcare, food services, shelter, and practical work skills. These resources/tools will help them to become successful adults.
