Why are there so many orphans in the world?

A harsh question that begs an answer so we can do something to address this ever growing problem. Over the years I have visited many orphanages across the globe and have learned some of the reasons why we have so many orphans. My ever inquisitive mind wanted to better understand the “why” so I could learn how best to help. Through research and first hand knowledge I began to understand that the reasons are varied. I decided to create a video presentation of my findings. My hope is that by providing insights and statistics others can learn how to prevent this from happening and others can learn what they can do to help a child in need. I welcome you to to take a look at my video titled “Why are there so many orphans in the world?” [youtube]http://youtu.be/6EY_2ZhSvvc[/youtube]
