According to UNICEF, there were 143 millions orphans worldwide in 2004. Many orphans suffer the worst poverty and neglect that can be experienced. They are under fed, subject to filthy living conditions and susceptible to illness and disease.
At We Love Orphans, they believe it’s just not enough to visit orphanages and “drop-off” food and clothing! Their work to improve livig conditions has two goals.
- establish training facilities that supply cutting-edge technologies and research in aquaponics, aquaculture and animal husbandry.
- Prepare workers to implement these technologies at orphanages throughout the world.
We Love Orphans is training the personnel necessary to implement and establish these technologies. Their work extends to orphans in Asia and the Middle East, and are partnered with orphanages throughout the world.
If you would like to attend the October 8 benefit, more information can be found at WeLoveOrphans.org or on their facebook page. Donations toward the raffle can be made online, in increments of $25. In addition, those who attend the event can donate gently used clothing for the benefit sale.
If you are moved by the commercials you see on tv, but would also like to get rewarded for your donation and meet the people who put the plan into action, attend We Love Orphans benefit sale, raffle, art show and concert Saturday, October 8.
