Every 2 seconds an orphan dies of malnutrition.
Every 2.2 seconds a child ages out of the system (orphanage – age 16 and foster care age 18) and has no place to go, no skills, and no one to turn to. They are given about $20 and sometimes a ride to the shelter.
One study reported that of 15,000 orphans aging out of state-run institutions every year, about 1,000 committed suicide, 5,000 were unemployed, 6,000 were homeless and 3,000 were in prison within three years…
According to the “Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life,” in 2010 there were 2.18 billion Christians around the world, nearly a third of the global population.
So if there are so many Christians in the world, why are there so many orphans, and so many people alone and suffering????
Matthew 25: 35-36
For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you brought Me in and welcomed Me, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me.
