n Ecuador there are hundreds and hundreds of abandoned and disadvantaged children living in orphanages. Often these children are in the orphanages because of poverty, societal conditions and political unrest. The good-hearted staffs of these orphanages are struggling to meet the individual needs of these children because their limited resources are strained and they can’t provide everything they’d like to.

Cradle of Hope(Orphange) | Children Without Parental Care3 | Scoop.it

Having previously worked with street children in Brazil, Marjory and Jorge Vendramini have always committed themselves to working with children and youth. In 1993, after consulting with the Macau government of the time, Marjory and Jorge moved to Macau where they felt they could make a difference. Months passed before they read in a local newspaper about a one day old baby who was found in a trash can. Rats had bitten the baby and a cleaner hearing his cries had investigated and rescued him. Feeling compassion, Jorge and Marjory prayed for help for the baby and after contacting Macau Social Welfare, the then 2 month old baby was delivered to their home and stayed under their care until he was adopted into a loving family. This young boy would become the first of many children to be given the “Cradle of Hope” loving care.

Child protection from violence, exploitation and abuse.

Children sometimes lose their first line of protection – their parents. Reasons for separation include abduction, trafficking, migration, living on the street, being displaced, or recruited by armed forces; living in alternative care due to health issues, educational reasons, household violence, poverty, death of parents, or stigma.
