,Voice of 8 million ORPHANS’, who are forced to live their lives on streets: Save me
Orphan: Every year there are millions of kids in world who are forced to live their lives either on streets or in some Orphanage. The situation is critical the only thing how do we see it. I have tried to pen down some pain areas they have. Constantly I will write on this topic “Save me”, as I consider one of the brother among them.
I was among one of the blessed child, who never waited long to get want I wanted. So every time I walk to my parents and make a wish to get what I wished for. Every time they were there in hard and good times to support me in ups and down of life. In fact till a certain age I was not aware of the hard work required to get something I wished for. The same story goes for most of us until you look up to someone who at a very small age working hard to earn a bread for him/herself or don’t even know what a wish means despite of us fighting for religion, caste and color.
What are we talking about?
Yes you are right I am talking about ORPHAN’s. Small word but impact unimaginative for any of us blessed with parents. Just imagine life without parents, how would it be?
So a study done by Unicef tells us that there are 8 million orphans in India. Before I tell you further let us understand who is an Orphan?
A child/adult whose biological parents are deceased or otherwise unable or unwilling to take care of them due to which they are forced to live their lives in darkness in either ways is an orphan. They do not have any religion, caste or color nor are they for any party or country. They look for a hand to hold them and tell “Beta I am there for you every time.”
So 8 million Indian kids are forced to live their life either in orphanage or on streets where we don’t even give a dam to look at them.
So it is not that everything is a problem yes there are so many institutions working for orphans. Most institutional orphanages are overcrowded and dilapidated, some rife with corruption, neglect and abuse. Even when managed by people with good intentions. Orphanages often lack the necessary funds, resources and knowledge to properly provide for the children in their care. The fact is, most of the children in these institutions don’t stand much of a chance of breaking out of the cycle of poverty and thriving as independent adults.
So what is the solution?
Solution is very simple let us join hands and adopts an orphan. Yes so good news is that for every 9th couple. There is one orphan to be adopted but who is that 9th couple is to be decided.
Decision is yours you want to wait for that 9th couple to take a step ahead with if not adopting then start helping or spending out some Quality time from our busy schedule.
