Homes of Life
Homes to transform the lives of street children, child soldiers and children in need
“My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.” - Isaiah 32:18
WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO YOU?
For many of us, home means love, acceptance, and security. However for millions of children around the world home as we know it has never been a reality. One of ORA New Zealand’s priorities is providing safe homes for children in Moldova, Uganda and Myanmar. The need for safe homes in these countries is urgent; without a home, children are vulnerable to exploitation, trafficking and violence.
In Moldova, more than 5000 young children have disappeared from the streets in the last six years, many the victims of human trafficking rings. In Uganda an estimated 10,000 children live on the streets, unloved, uneducated and unprotected. And in Myanmar, there are more than 75,000 child soldiers, the largest concentration of child soldiers in the world.
These statistics are overwhelming, but you can start by helping a few children at a time. That is why we have started the Homes of Life appeal, to provide safe homes for children in Moldova, Uganda and Myanmar.
For us a home may mean love and acceptance, but for many children in Uganda, Moldova and Myanmar a home will mean the difference between life and death.
