Every child wants a safe, loving family to grow up in. But over 8 million children, confined to orphanages and other forms of institutional care around the world are being denied this, often with catastrophic effects.

Orphanages do not protect children. They harm them. Children in orphanages are often subject to high levels of abuse and neglect. Without family to care for them, or friends to play alongside they live in a world without love. The impact of this can last a lifetime. Some don’t survive at all.

Hope and Homes for Children is recognised as a global expert in the field of deinstitutionalisation. By closing orphanages, supporting children into loving families and preventing family break down, we are working towards a day where orphanages have been eradicated for good.

For example, when we started our work in Romania in 1999 there were 100,000 children in orphanages, now there are less than 10,000. We believe we can end the injustice of the institutionalisation of children. A gift in your Will can help this happen.
