Orphans

These women and children are the future of Nepal, but their future is bleak.

GIVE THEM A HOME, AND YOU’LL GIVE THEM A FUTURE.

Marcus was born to a single mother in the southern region of Nepal. Unskilled and uneducated, his mother came from extreme poverty with no financial means to care for Marcus.

There wasn’t enough food for her or Marcus.

His mother didn’t know what to do. She was desperate.

Only 57.4% of Nepalese adults can read. Such a high rate of illiteracy makes escaping poverty next to impossible.

Mentally unstable, Marcus’ mother came to the conclusion that the best thing to do was to kill her little boy.

She tried several times in different ways, but miraculously, Marcus survived them all. In her last attempt, she brought little Marcus to the edge of a bridge over the river.

As Marcus’ mother struggled to throw her helpless son into the icy current, a woman passing by saw what she was about to do and grabbed Marcus out of her arms.

In addition to the children abandoned due to poverty, 1 million Nepali children were left at risk of hunger, exposure, disease, and child trafficking after the 2015 Nepal Earthquakes.

The mother gave up Marcus to the lady who had rescued him. Marcus soon found his way to one of  the WMOO supported children’s homes.

No one knows the whereabouts of Marcus’ mother or father, but now he’s surrounded by loving adults, playful brothers and sisters, has a safe, warm bed to sleep in every night and is receiving an education.

Today, Marcus is growing and doing remarkably well. He is the youngest child in the home and gets the attention from everyone.

You can help children like Marcus escape a life of poverty, or even death, by supporting our orphan care program at WMOO.

Help them feel that they are loved, wanted, and cared for. They’re not a burden or an accident!

When you give a gift to WMOO’s orphan care program, you’re giving children without hope or future the chance to live in a home with people who care about them, go to school, and get proper nutrition every day.

You’re giving them another chance at the life every little boy and girl deserves in this world.
