The average orphan spends about ten years in an orphanage or foster care. And those are the lucky ones. Others spend their lives abandoned with no one to care for them. Many end up as child-slaves. Whether in orphanages or abandoned, many orphans are exploited, abused, hungry and lonely. This is the plight of orphans in today’s world. And it cannot be ignored.
The Global Orphan Crisis, be the solution—change your world by Diane Lynn Elliot (Moody Publishers) divulges the atrocious dilemma that hundreds of thousands of children find themselves in—simply because they don’t have parents.
