After 70 years of communism in this nation, families crumbled with no faith in God. The godless nation has demoralized itself. The elderly are forced to beg for money as pensions are insufficient to survive. Streets continue to be filled with homeless children, while orphanages are underfunded and overflowing with orphans. Due to several societal issues, there are many “social orphans.” After a collapse in the government, many families found it financially difficult to support a child. Extreme drug abuse, alcoholism, and physical or emotional abuse affect the family and the children. A child might be removed or leave home on his or her own. With many orphanages overcrowded and lacking funds and staff, children don’t receive the attention and nurturing needed for healthy development.
