Tragically millions of children all over the globe have become orphaned for many reasons: war, famine, displacement, disease, or poverty. Of more than 155 million children classified as orphans, 15.1 million have lost both parents. Throughout Scripture, God had expressed his concern by asking that His people show concern and care for orphans. He pictures Himself as "A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation" (Psalms 68:5).
