Every day 5,760 more children become orphans.
In Ukraine alone, there are over 100,000 orphans.
Children typically age out of the orphanage system around age 15 or 16--unprepared for the life outside. They have no family to go to and no place to call home.
After release, studies have shown that 60% of the girls become prostitutes, 70% of the boys become hardened criminals, and 10%-15% of these children commit suicide before they reach age eighteen.
We may not be able to save all the orphans in the world (although Mark has always wanted a large family...), but we can make a difference in one or two of these children's lives.
