Romania Without Orphans Alliance (ARFO)
A family for every child
Vulnerability is a vicious circle. Whenever things get more difficult for any society, the vulnerable become even more vulnerable.
Over 50.000 children are in the social care system in Romania.
Loose 1-2 IQ points per month in residential care (according to Harvard)
Are up to 10x more likely to be trafficked (according to FBI data)
Are 4 times more likely to commit suicide in teenage years (Pilowsky & Wu, 2006)
ARFO addresses the problem collaboratively and systemically
We don’t only need to change lives, we need to change the system and eliminate the vulnerability of orphanhood in children.
ARFO unites NGOs, churches, companies, public and private persons, all having a single purpose:
That each child should benefit from the love, support and safety of belonging to a family..
