The cause

Carrol with his family

Always family. Never orphanages.
Children like Uwera, pictured above, always belong in a family. But unfortunately for Uwera, her first precious years of life were spent confined to a crowded orphanage with no one to hold her, comfort her or love her. Left for days on end in the same filthy nappy, she slept on the floor and was fed just once every 24 hours. Shouted at if she made a noise, she stayed silent. By the time Uwera was two and half years old, she couldn’t walk or talk, and she was tiny for her age.

Sadly, Uwera’s story is not unusual. There is now decades of research to prove that orphanages do not protect children, they harm them.

Orphanages expose children to neglect and abuse and damage their development. Because the last thing that any orphanage can provide is the first thing that every child needs: someone to love them. Children never belong in orphanages.
