Abandoned Children - Alpha Component

Sniffing GlueThere are over 100 million abandoned children struggling to survive on the streets of many of the developing nations of Central and South America, Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia. The exact statistics on the number of these children who live on their streets is difficult to ascertain because not all of the births are registered with government. states that every hour:

  • 1,625 children are forced to live on the streets due to the death or abuse of an adult
  • 1.667 children under the age of five die from malnutrition and vaccine-preventable diseases
  • 115 children become prostitutes
  • 66 children under 15 are infected with HIV
  • 257 children are orphaned because of HIV/AIDS

These orphaned/ abandoned children are under the age of fifteen and are:

  • Sleeping on, streets, sewers and dumps every night
  • Scavenging garbage for rotting morsels and scraps to eat
  • Huffing glue and other substances in order to numb hunger and pain
  • Prostituting themselves for basic food and shelter
  • Trafficked and sold into sexual bondage, even at five years old and younger
  • Abused and brutalized by sexual predators, local gangs, and corrupt police officers
  • Victimized by HIV/AIDS-infected men, some who believe that sleeping with young virgins can cure the disease
  • Recruited into lives of thievery, smuggling and drug dealing
  • Abducted to serve as child soldiers or the sex slaves of soldiers
  • Executed by local businessmen and officials who view them as a dirty pests interfering with trade and commerce
  • Sacrificed in occult/ witchcraft rituals
  • Worst of all abandoned children are robbed of any hope!

It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. (Luke 17:2 NIV)
