Having a stable and loving family is, undoubtedly, the cornerstone of a happy and healthy childhood. However, too many children – for a variety of reasons – are left without parents well before they are old enough to care for themselves. The list of things that take parents away from children forever is long and, frankly, horrible. War, drug abuse, suicide, illness or even simple accidents can be the difference between a positive and happy childhood and a lifetime of uncertainty and fear, with effects that ripple far beyond the developmental years.
For the vast majority of orphans, there is no magical Hogwarts that will gift them with a chance to escape their situation. But that doesn’t mean that they’re beyond the help and advocacy they deserve. Whether you’re looking to offer international help or something a little closer to home, you can give something today that can really make a difference.
