Lumos is a charity fighting for every child’s right to a family, by transforming care systems around the world. Globally, we estimate that there are more than 5 million children living in orphanages or other institutions, yet shockingly, 80% of them have at least one living parent. Research confirms that institutions harm a child’s growth and development. Institutions deprive children of a loving family.
The Coronavirus pandemic puts children and families at even greater risk of separation due to poverty. Lumos is working hard to ensure that children in institutions and vulnerable families are not forgotten during this crisis. We are providing support on the ground for families such as emergency food supplies and hygiene kits. Join us in the fight for every child’s right to a loving and safe family – so all children can have the brighter future they deserve.
Your support will help us to ACT NOW.
