It is estimated that 140 million children worldwide are orphans. (UNICEF). There were 19.5 million refugees in 2015; half of them were children (UNHCR).
These stats are just a small example of the plight of orphans around the world. In refugee camps like Buduburam, Ghana, thousands of children orphaned by the Liberian civil war, live in squalor – surviving with barely a roof over their heads.
As part of our #holdthespace campaign we will be raising funds to assist with building schools and housing complexes for refugee orphans from war-torn regions of the world.
