Ministry To Children, Youth and Young Women, most of whom are vulnerable and at-risk; “Ministry to At-risk Children, Youth & Young Women”

The Facts:

  • 2.2 billion children in the world
  • 640 million are without adequate shelter (1 in 3)
  • 400 million are without safe water (1 in 5)
  • 270 million are with no access to health services (1 in 7)
  • 121 million children without access to education
  • 15 million children orphaned due to HIV/AIDS (same as population of the U.K.)
  • 10.6 million children died before they reached the age of 5 in 2003 (same as the population in France, Greece, Germany and Italy
  • According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children

The Rationale:
Children and youth are our future. Jesus said to suffer the little children to come unto Him, Matthew 19:14. If we do not reach and rescue the children and the vulnerable and at-risk, when we know how and have the means to do so, we are insuring their destruction and the degradation of our world. That would be injustice in its purest form.
