When a family loses the first line of support the father or in worst cases both parents, not only do they have to cope with the tragedy of losing someone very dear, but also the loss of a regular source of income, which provided them the basic requirements in life.
Today there are millions of orphans around the world; they are amongst the most vulnerable in society as they do not have the same opportunities as other children. They are often forced into child labour in order to survive and miss out on a normal childhood. Needy orphans are usually deprived of food, clothing, sufficient healthcare and a good education. Perhaps the greatest tragedy of all is their lack of education.
Given the opportunity of going to school, these orphans could develop practical skills, which would enable their communities to break out of the cycle of poverty.ADT donors currently sponsor 250 orphans in the South of Somalia.
