Romanian Orphan

Any given day in Oradea, Romania: 70+ abandoned babies & toddlers left at the hospital.
Over 9000 babies are abandoned yearly,
Over 150,000 orphans in Romania right now,
Around 50000 of these children are in 940 orphanages,
Leaving over 50% with no place to live,
Many of these orphans have a «disease» called Failure to Thrive…
A disease caused by a lack of love and attention, causing the babies’ bodies to shut down.
