Orphans & Vulnerable Children

The Problem: Children in Need

Tragically, approximately 143 million children are orphaned worldwide. Millions more who have parents live below the poverty line and suffer hunger, hardship and abuse. In many countries, thousands will die before the age of five from food shortages, polluted water, and lack of basic hygiene and medical care.

The Answer: Orphan's Promise

CBN is reaching out to orphans and vulnerable children through an innovative program called Orphan’s Promise. Our goal is to reach out with the love of Jesus and meet their physical, educational and spiritual needs through partnerships with local churches and other established ministries. In 2010 alone, thousands of children were helped in over 50 countries.
