Prity Thankful for Her Seven Sisters!

Prity Thankful for Her Seven Sisters!

May 17, 2017

Prity was born into a Muslim family in south-western Bangladesh in an area called Bagerhat. When she was 3 years old her mother died and her father remarried. The new stepmother abused Prity and her father decided to sell her to another woman.

Shortly thereafter, the woman who had bought Prity also died. Suddenly there was no one to care for her. Some neighbors contacted Bangladesh Without Orphans [BWO] who took on Prity’s responsibility. Today Prity is living in the BWO Family Rescue Home with her foster parents and seven sisters, each of whom came from similar situations. Thank God with us that at last Prity has a loving home where she is thriving and is also able to attend school.

Alina: Proof that Kyrgyzstan Without Orphans is Making a Difference

April 28, 2017

In Kyrgyzstan, hundreds of children are abandoned in hospitals or left to the care of the state. Presently 11,000 children are living in institutions with no “adoptable” status. There are a myriad of factors that contribute to the vulnerability of children and families in this country, including challenging economic conditions, alcohol, and drug abuse. However, these trends are changing! Our partner, Kyrgyzstan Without Orphans, is an orphan care movement that is leading the way to a world without orphans through awareness-raising events, which frequently result in orphans finding loving Christian families in their home country. 

Alina who, like many children in Kyrgyzstan, was abandoned at birth. Her biological mother suffered from severe alcohol abuse that transpired into a life of homelessness. Alina was born without proper medical attention and her mother left her to the care of the state. Although Alina’s mother didn’t see or visit her daughter in the institution for three years, Alina didn’t have an “adoptable” status.

Alina’s now-adoptive parents, Elmira and Alexandr, deeply desired to adopt a child. They spoke to the local social services and were told there were no children available for adoption. 

Enter the Kyrgyzstan Without Orphan (KWO) team. They are working tirelessly with the local government to assist children like Alina to obtain an “adoptable” status when the parent(s) have given up their children to institutions. Through one of KWO’s awareness-raising initiatives, Elmira and Alexandr learned about the movement and began working with the local KWO team to find their future son or daughter. After meeting Alina, Elmira and Alexandr quickly fell in love and, with much thanks to the KWO team, Elmira and Alexandr received interim custody of Alina. For two years the team worked with the local government to obtain an “adoptable” status for Alina and, finally, Elmira and Alexandr officially adopted her! Praise God that He is able to work through movements like KWO to help find forever families for children like Alina!

At Last, Philip Knows a Father’s Love

At Last, Philip Knows a Father’s Love

April 13, 2017

Shortly after Philip was born in Jalirpar Gopalgonj (a southern region of Bangladesh), Philip’s father left for India, deserting his wife and son.

Philip’s mother managed to put food on the table by working in a local steel mill. But, sadly, in 2006 she died in a work accident. An uncle graciously took Philip in for a short time, but didn’t have enough resources to care for him long-term. In 2007 this uncle contacted Bangladesh Without Orphans (BWO) to find a new home for Philip. Thanks to the BWO foster care program, Philip now lives with a loving mother and father. He also has nine brothers who were all orphans before joining this amazing foster family! He is 11 years old and is in the sixth grade.

Praise God that Philip is thriving in his new family! Please pray that he will continue to do well and will soon come to know and love his Heavenly Father.

Join the Prayer Movement

At the present time, 153 million children in our world are orphans. If these children were counted as a single nation, they would compose the seventh largest nation on earth. Join us in praying that God provides a home for each of these precious little ones who long for a loving family!
