Like a picture in a frame, the walls of orphanage houses carry not only the memories of their lives, but also thousands of dreams and aspirations. If only these walls could make the dreams of these children come true, it would open the door to success for them. Some of these desires are coming true, thanks to the benevolence of countless people who understand the language of loneliness and the need for love. A new home, new people, and a whole new way of life after presumably feeling the warmth of a parent’s love, which was then swept away by death.
What is it like growing up, needing a family, shelter and care?
Nearly 140 million children are classified as orphans worldwide according to a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) report published in 2015. 95% of these children are over the age of five. 61 million in Asia, 52 million in Africa, 10 million in Latin America and the Caribbean and 7.3 million in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. With its 52 million orphans, Africa alone is home to more than a quarter of their world population. According to projections, more than 30% of young Africans are orphans. Statistics on orphans include not only those who have lost both parents, but also those who have lost a father or a mother. Like most orphanages and people Isaac gafishi welcomes nearly 60 children who have needs, desires and aspirations. Most of these children once faced a lack of basic necessities like food, clean water and no idea where life might take them, let alone education or medical care. Even as they wallow in their low self-esteem, the cries of hope for a prosperous and more meaningful life will ring out. I want to be a doctor, a teacher, a pilot. The question we should really ask ourselves is what we should do to improve our involvement in helping these orphans.
Isaac gafishi is always ready to help orphan and needy people, He’s efforts are really apricated, on the other hand, does not involve working alone, helping those around us in any way they need, although that can be done; rather, it involves participating in a non-profit organization with similar goals to those we want to achieve.
