Reunite children with families
LIGHT UP LIVES THIS FESTIVE SEASON
MILLIONS OF CHILDREN ARE GROWING UP WITHOUT A FAMILY
Around the world, there are over 5.4 million children living in orphanages and other harmful institutions. Separated from their families and communities, they are deprived of the love, attention and opportunities they need to thrive.
No child belongs in an orphanage. Every child taken away from their family and consigned to an orphanage tears the very fabric of a happy, healthy and resilient society. Every child deserves to grow up in a safe and loving family, surrounded by people who care.
By donating this holiday season, you’re lighting a path home for children separated from their loved ones and living in an orphanage. Your gift will help our work to protect more children and reunite more families.
It will also help us invest in services that prevent family separation, help reform care systems around the world, and help more children live at home, surrounded by love, rather than in an institution.
“What I love most about living with my parents is that we’re all together as a family – and we can spend time together.”
MARIA, REUNITED CHILD
“The thing we needed was the love and affection of someone who loved us… Like every family, we have problems, but what unites us is love.”
FELIPE, REUNITED TEENAGER
“What I like the most is that we spend time together. That we go out to the park. That we support each other.”
PABLO, REUNITED CHILD
