It is estimated by the ReliefWeb reports of last week that before the Quake that Haiti had 380,000 Orphans, and now that number is estimated to be close to ONE Million. Sadly these children now face much trying to survive, issues of Shelter,food,Medical Care and Schooling and Emotional Recovery. Sadly They also face much as a vulnerable population, including child slavery and child trafficking. The UN last week announced to Media that they are trying to register the Orphans as they find them, but more information is needed regarding actual shelter and protection of these thousands of children. If you would like to donate to some of the Organizations that are helping Children. Here are some of them....I will be updating this list as I get more information.
SOS Childrens Villages is one organization that is working hard on protection and care of new and existing orphans.
CARE is another organization that is on the ground working on taking care of the children, and orphans of Haiti.
Gods Littlest Angels is another smaller org that is doing and will be providing Orphan care in the years to come.
UNICEF is coping with a huge load and doing their part as well, and carrying on their highly respected work.
