We Must Be Their FamilyJuly 28, 2011
By: Staff member at A Better World Children’s Home
In Cameroon alone there are over a million orphans from AIDS. A generation of children growing up without their parents, leaving aged grandparents to try and support 10 or more grandchildren. Many times there are no surviving relatives and that is why A Better World Children’s Home was born.
No community in Cameroon is immune to the ravages of AIDS, no village free from its devastating effects. As members of the world community we are not exempt from the responsibilities this human tragedy brings. Spiritually, emotionally, physically, and medically it is one of the deadliest diseases, if not the deadliest, ever to strike the human race.
We must see that the story of AIDS is not about epidemiology, economics, or statistics. Rather, it is the story of guilt, pain, fear and neglect.
These orphaned children did not ask to be brought into the world only to be completely abandoned, with nowhere to go and no one to turn to.
We must be their family.
We can give them a chance, a home, and education and the emotional stability to grow up to become leaders in society.
That is our goal.
Our orphanage project is giving care and education to 44 orphans and we want to do more. Join and support us today to make the world a better and a safer place for these kids.
