World Orphans Day 2011

 

The pandemic of homeless and orphaned children is exponentially growing, leaving 145 million children orphaned or displaced globally.

143 million children are suffering from malnutrition, and 400 thousand of those will die this year.
HIV and AIDS is devastating global communities and millions are facing the horror of war and abuse EVERY day. 
 
All of these things mean that every TWO SECONDS another child is orphaned.
