Please jump for Lumos and help millions of children in institutions worldwide regain a family life.
Eight million children worldwide live in so-called orphanages, also known as institutions. Nearly all are NOT orphans but are separated from parents because of poverty, disability or their ethnic background. Children that are raised in institutions cannot develop properly and don't have the same opportunities in life. We help countries close the institutions, reunite children with their families and reform care services to support them. The children's needs - for love, care, a safe family home, good health and education - always come first. Growing up in a loving family environment will help them fulfil their potential and turn into happy and secure adults.
