An orphan is a child whose parents have died, are unknown, or have permanently abandoned them. In common usage, only a child who has lost both parents due to death is called an orphan. As foundation of Life our duty is to establish a connection and satisfy the needs of the orphaned children. We help by giving them food, shelter, clothing, school fees and other basic necessities of life. The Borgen Project have stated some of the facts and concerns of orphans living in Zimbabwe which include but are not limited to HIV/AIDS, Children are born with HIV/AIDS, Orphans can go to next of kin, but that is not always an option, Many run away after becoming orphaned etc.
Furthermore from our research we have established that orphans’ psychosocial problems ranged from fear, lack of parental love, trauma, stress and frustration. The emotional and psychological problems faced by the orphans also put them at higher risk for juvenile delinquency. Therefore as Foundation of Life we try by all means necessary to lend a helping hand whenever and wherever we can to help these children. Other than financial assistance we also offer emotional and psychological support to the orphans.
There are children in Zimbabwe who were born to some parents but are now left alone to fend for themselves. These children are either thrown in a dumpster or left to survive on their own, with no idea where and how to earn their bread and butter. It would be a good thing to empathise and care for such children and take affirmative action in some form. While there are several means to support them, one of the most trusted ways is to get associated with an NGO, like Foundation Of Life . Your donation for orphans through an us will ensure that the children are not shunted out to brave the streets without any help or support.
