In Cameroon same as many countries around the world, there are millions of children who don't know their parents, who've lost their parents and have no other family or relative(s) to take care of them. The people of orphanages takes care of them, volunteers accept to help these children, donors accept to help these children in different ways to better their lives and make them feel at home wherever their orphanage is found. Staying with other children and growing is building a new family, staying with them everyday playing, studying etc... makes it more than their first homes. Some will not want to leave the orphanage to go anywhere because they are happy with the rest.
This video shows the case of Rhema Grace Orphanage in Ombe, Tiko SW of Cameroon, where I short a documentary. I could not stop wiping tears off my eyes when I saw different children with all kinds of problems: half blind, deaf, sick, lack of food, clean water, plates to eat from, etc... and the very little ones who play with each other as if their parents are still to come and collect them.
Many National and International organizations, volunteers and donors are doing all to help these children live a better life like every other child. That's why Engineers Without Borders - USA University of Anchorage, Alaska chapter is doing all they can with the help of donors to change the lives of these orphans at the Rhema Grace Orphanage.
