Guatemala tragedy shows orphanages must be scrapped

Friday, March 24, 2017


How could abuse and trafficking on the scale be permitted against Guatemala’s most vulnerable children that was highlighted by the recent fire tragedy?

Sadly, this is a situation found again and again among the estimated 8 million to 10 million children locked in orphanages and disability facilities around the world. After the terrible tragedy in Guatemala, it’s time to shut down orphanages that leave the world’s children exposed to danger and neglect.
