Esther, pictured below, was a newborn when her mother died shortly after childbirth. At that time, Esther’s father was mentally and financially unable to raise his daughter and left her in her aunt’s care. Tragically, when Esther was only 11 months old, her aunt died. She wound up in the care of a local Christian children’s home.
A common myth about orphans is that they have no living parents or relatives to care for them when tragedy strikes. However, “children are often separated from their families because of poverty. An estimated 80% of children in orphanages have at least one living parent. With the right support, many could be reunified with their families.” (Orphan Myth)
(Orphan Myth is a group of NGOs, child advocacy specialists, influencers, faith-leaders, and businesses dedicated to help every child belong in a safe, loving family.)
YOU REUNITED THIS FAMILY!
After two years of treatment, counseling, and steady employment, Esther’s father desperately desired to be reunited with his daughter. Partners in India were able to pour into this family and bring this daughter and father back together securely and properly.
