Homeless Be A HERO

Poverty leads to orphans and homelessness.

  • 150 million children live on the street.
  • Action International says that by 2020 there will be 800 million homeless children.
  • The UN says that the street children situation is one of the worst crises facing the nations of the world.
  • This is a disaster

“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” – Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 25, par. 1

Extreme Poverty Be A HEROAverage Gross National Income for every man, women, and child in America is $35,060. World Development Bank, 2003.

  • Of the 24 mostly Western Developed Nations (including NA, Western Europe, Australia & New Zealand etc.)  Population of 900 million, the GNI is $27,000 USD
  • Compare this to the fact that 1.2 billion people live on under $1.00 a day and 2.7 billion people live on under $2.00 USD a day.
  • 500 million people are hungry and another 500 million are so poor that they don’t consume enough food to render them productive.
  • Because of poverty 33,000 children (mostly under-five-year-olds) die every day due to preventable diseases – diarrhea, measles, malaria, and malnutrition – that is more than one child dying every 3 seconds.
  • 55% of all child deaths (17 million deaths a year) are just because the children are hungry.
  • Poverty is at the root of most of that which contributes to 'children becoming at risk'.

Mexico Rancho San Juan Bosco Tecate Be A HERODonate Button Small NA

City: Tecate, Mexico
Project:  Orphanage
Partner: Rancho San Juan Bosco
Number of Children: 35

Description: RSJB was established for boys only and at this time can accommodate up to 40 children ranging in age from 4 to 17. Expansion plans are underway to increase their capacity to 80 children including infants. They have also just opened a medical clinic to treat the boys as well as surrounding neighbors. RSJB rehabilitates street children and attempts to reunite them with any existing family or a new family. The main goal is to provide Christ-centered stability in the lives of children by teaching them about the love of a heavenly father who will never abandon them. The orphanage is not supported by the Mexican government and is not affiliated with any national denomination or church group. They are completely dependent upon the generosity of others, both locally and in other countries.

Mexicao Orphanage - Colima Be A HERODonate Button Small NA

City: Colima, Mexico
Project: Orphanage
Partner: Hogar de Amor
Number of Children: 100

Hogar de Amor was founded with the desire to help orphans, homeless and mistreated children, giving them all the support that they should normally have in their own home - support not only in their physical needs but also in their spiritual and emotional needs as well. With this in mind, we provide a couple to take care of 15 children by supplying them with all their basic needs such as love, security, acceptance, and identity, which will enable them to develop normally. Every child we receive brings feelings which are contrary to those previously mentioned, which gives us a big task to help them to trust in God, in themselves, and in those around them. What is of most importance to us is that they will live and learn in a practical way, something invaluable: "the love of Jesus," and they may begin a deep personal relationship with Him that will completely transform their lives.

Orphans

Orphans 2 Be A HERO

Every day 5,760 more children become orphans

UNICEF and global partners define an orphan as a child who has lost one or both parents.

By this definition there were over 132 million orphans in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean in 2005.

This large figure represents not only children who have lost both parents, but also those who have lost a father but have a surviving mother or have lost their mother but have a surviving father.

Of the more than 132 million children classified as orphans, only 13 million have lost both parents. Evidence clearly shows that the vast majority of orphans are living with a surviving parent grandparent, or other family member. 95 per cent of all orphans are over the age of five.
