Make orphanages history

According to Lancet (2022) there are 5.4 million children growing up in institutions around the world. More than 80% of the children are not orphans, but have been unnecessarily separated from their families due to poverty and discrimination. Several decades of research have demonstrated that orphanages are harmful to children and expose them to a number of forms of abuse and trafficking. We can prevent this from happening by donating to organizations that support children growing up with their families. In addition, we can support causes that help strengthen social structures so that children can remain with their families. In addition, we can strengthen communities so that vulnerable and poor families can receive the services they need.
