10 Ways You Can Care for an Orphan or Waiting Child- Day 5

5. PROTECT them from harm.
9 The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows,
but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
~Psalm 146

Orphans and foster kids are IN DANGER.
Orphans girls are in danger of human trafficking (85% of orphan girls will be sold through human trafficking once they age out from the orphanage).
Orphan boys are in danger of all kinds of violence (75% of orphan boys will turn to drugs, crime, or be sold through human trafficking once they age out from the orphanage).
Foster kids are being abused. Right now.
They need to be protected.
Do you care? Really. Consider it. What is the truthful answer to that question?
  • Become a foster parent or emergancy foster parent.
  • Raise money to build a children's home to help provide shelter to kids on the street. Visit WorldOrphans.org for details.

This is one of the worst trafficking areas, because of the international border. --So alarming and so scary. You are awesome in all you're doing! I know this will go so well for you.
