Why doesn’t OrphanCare support children being in orphanages since the children will be given food and shelter?

OrphanCare believes every child needs a family.

Research has shown that children especially young babies separated from their families and living in institutions are inhibited socially, mentally and emotionally. They have a lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem.

Living long term in an institution will have a negative impact on their personal growth and development, physically and psychologically.
