Africa is a large continent which consist of many different countries, 54 in number to be precise. Also, it has a large population of about one billion. Africa is a beautiful country which is extremely rich in minerals and other such resources like diamonds.
However, Africa is very closely linked to dangerous situations like economical and political instability, prolonged wars and deadly epidemics. But the most hazardous of them all is the overflowing amounts of immigrants and orphans. About 25 million people are estimated to be affected with HIV, with 1.6 million added to them each year. Also, another shocking fact is that due to HIV outbursts, about 12 million children are orphaned. Note that this figure doesn’t include those whose parents die because of other calamities like wars or other epidemics. In total, there are about 60 million orphaned children living in Africa.
Who will protect these children?
As seen above, those orphaned children living in Africa are very vulnerable to mishaps like war and epidemics occurring around them. If they are not protected, they’ll become victims of these mishaps and will perish.
It is every individual’s duty as a human being that he or she must protect and care for their fellow humans. Only our efforts can save those innocent children from being homeless. However, we aren’t alone in this. Many non-governmental organisations can collaborate with us to provide services to the needy. These organisations have a beautiful vision of Africa without any poverty or orphans. One of the best of these organisations is the Amitofo Care Centre Australia (ACC). More
