If we talk about Orphans in South Asia and Pakistan, as a part of the society, suffer the most because of lack of governmental programs to address their needs and welfare. Often, orphans in these regions are supported by local communities at a bare minimum survival stage. A good number of them may be very intelligent but, because of lack of financial support, they cannot develop and utilize their skills through education and are unable to avail the opportunities around them.
When we talk about the Christian orphans the situation becomes worst as the orphanages which are working in Pakistan are mainly managed and administered by the Muslims, and even more
On this they are run by religion groups of the society. When a Christian orphan needs to be sent in any orphanage the management of the orphanage starts to make lame excuses that they are already over burdened and there is no room for new children so the child have to face difficulty and risk his future and life by the refusal.
Some orphanages are kind enough to adopt a Christian child but they have some special and hidden policies for Christian orphans, when they take them in their orphanage they start to convert them to Islam, they preach Islam and force them to offer Muslim prayers, even more they prepare them to be Islamic warriors in different places to fight against non Muslims.
“Leave your orphans; I will protect their lives .Your widows too can trust in me.”
Among a very few local orphanages in Pakistan we tried our best to identified hundreds of orphans, from all kinds of backgrounds such as due to mass destruction of last earth quick the Christian Orphans were on risk. The extreemist organizations can washed their brain and used them for suicide bombing.These children can be used in child traficing or bonded child labour.Same as in 2010 flood During our visit we have observed that the Government Officials were refusing or ignoring these religious minorities in relief and giving priority to Muslim communities.However all kinds of backgrounds and have experienced terrible tragedies and hardships in their short lives. Without our intervention they have little hope of a future. Their choices are very limited if they even make it to adulthood at all.
