Humanity Gives supports Orphans
Humanity Gives supports Orphans and at present for 2018/19 we are focusing only on Morocco and Egypt. However, I tried a google search to get some facts and figures and the results have shocked even myself. For example, the numbers given were between 143,000,000 and 210,000,000 children are orphans. That’s 143 MILLION children. The last time I heard 143 million was for the Euro Lottery and that is a lot of money too much for most to comprehend.
These numbers were taken from a UNICEF report some years ago and with the global conflicts droughts famines (I have left out plagues but give it a few years and they’ll be back!!!) the number can and is probably much much higher.
Some more facts from Google: The population of the US is around is 300,000,000!!!
Google also explained that every 15 seconds, a child in AFRICA becomes an AIDS orphan.
There are more orphans in Sub-Sahara Africa than ALL of the children in Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Canada, and Sweden – combined!
Every day . . .5,760 children in the world become orphans.
I have to admit these are astonishing even paralysing numbers for me and what also demotivates me is that the numbers will only grow bigger and larger making ourselves realise the futility of Humanity before you ask what are the causes and to be honest I don’t know there is not one simple reason but many many complex ones however the fact remains that we as individuals members of this great thing called Humanity. We need to take a step back and realise how we can respond.
We have to focus on our own circles of influence don’t worry about the big things but focus on the small manageable chunks slowly and surely if each one of us was to focus on our own needs the needs of our immediate families and friends we can then meet the needs of others, strangers. So when we put our hands in our pockets or write a direct debit to our favourite charity remember every penny pound soon adds up. We have been collecting diligently and this can only happen with your support so I started this blog feeling deflated as I was looking at the global problem but once you localise this and realise that you are an important cog in the process of supporting Orphans, notice I said supporting as unfortunately being a realist this problem is never going to go away, however together with your support Humanity can deal with this malaise in a more meaningful way.
In summary look after yourself first, then your loved ones then and only when you are in a position to find some loose change an insignificant amount of money say a few pounds and then pass them on to a charity of your choosing you owe it to Humanity.
