One of Embrace Relief’s biggest priorities is to help orphans. There are more than 150 million orphans worldwide. Most of these orphans are neglected and need help. Every day more than 5700 kids become orphans. Most of these orphans are not adopted and spent around 10 years in orphanages. Every year 14 million orphans are released from orphanages because they reach the age of 18. Out of these released orphans, 70% of the boys become involved in serious offences like murder and robbery, while 60% of the girls become involved in prostitution.
Embrace Relief has worked to provide help to orphans in Haiti and Africa and has been continuing these efforts by providing schools supplies and food to orphanages.
