KARUANALAYA CHILDREN’S HOME

SOUTH ASIA

ORPHAN CRISIS IN SOUTH ASIA

This particular part of South Asia has the largest child population in the world. Unfortunately, the newest research shows that approximately 4% of the child population in this region are orphans. That’s 20 million children with no family, which is projected to increase over the next decade. Orphaned children face extreme vulnerabilities, including sex trafficking, forced child labor, HIV/ AIDS, and substance abuse. Many children have lost their parents because of abandonment due to poverty, illness, and death.

Even children with families in this region face unimaginable hardships. Most do not attend school regularly as they are pressured to go to work and earn money for their families. Health is also a struggle as early 2 million children born yearly do not live to the age of 5. These issues, combined with an unbalanced caste system, make orphaned children in South Asia most at risk.

ABOUT KARUANALAYA CHILDREN’S HOME

Karunalaya Children’s Home is committed to giving a home to the homeless and hope to the hopeless. The directors emphasize this place being a home, and not an orphanage. The directors have been involved in this ministry for over 17 years, and consider it a joy and honor to continue to serve these precious children.

Serving Orphans Worldwide travels to every orphanage we partner with to ensure needs are legitimate and 100% of funds distributed goes to the livelihood of the children.

PROMINENT ISSUES

ABANDONMENT

Child abandonment has become an increased issue in this part of South Asia. In most cases, these children are abandoned because of financial issues, relational problems, disabilities, gender preferences, or simply because they are unwanted.

CRIME

It’s been reported by the State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) that there is a 200% increase in reported crimes against children in this part of South Asia. Sexual assault tops this list.

ABUSE

Many of the children who come under the care of Karuanalaya have suffered physical or sexual abuse within their homes.
