The purpose of iloveorphans.com and this project is to respond to the current crisis in Africa involving the enormous and overwhelming number of orphaned children. Approximately 1.6 million orphans currently live in Uganda, representing 18% of the estimated nine million children who live in Uganda . The number of orphans is expected to grow to over 2 million by the year 2008. Many children are left homeless and orphaned, as AIDS, malaria, and other diseases have ravaged their parents' generation. These children are exposed to diseases such as malaria, gastroenteritis, and tuberculosis; they often lose hope. Your gift will help bring hope to these children. This children's center will be a place of safety, a place of hope, and place of love to children who so desperately need all three.
