Orphan’s Tear Ministry

Most children living in orphanages worldwide have one or two living parents. Poverty, discrimination, lack of educational opportunities, family breakups, natural and manmade disasters, war, and other things cause children to be separated from their families. Orphanages can harm children by not adequately meeting their needs, putting them at risk to all forms of abuse, and leaving them unprepared for life beyond the institution.

The Plan

We believe that children belong in families. Our mission is to 1) help children stay in families, and 2) help children get back into families when not. We do this through three approaches.
