Lumos is a global children’s charity striving for a world where all children can grow up in a safe and loving family.
A staggering 5.4 million children are estimated to be trapped in orphanages around the world, and over 80% are not orphans. Hundreds of research reports show how harmful orphanages are to a child’s wellbeing. They are deprived of love, and at risk of abuse and neglect.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Donate to Lumos today and your gift will be doubled (up to a total of £100,000 in match funding), to help bring more children home for the holidays and beyond.
Lumos works with communities in countries like Colombia, Kenya, Moldova, and Ukraine where we demonstrate how community-based care is possible and beneficial for all. We help close orphanages, find safe and loving homes for thousands of children safe and loving homes, and work closely with local partners and governments to build the support systems and processes which put the needs of vulnerable children first.
Donate to Lumos today and you can help ensure all children have the chance to grow up in safe and loving families, where they belong. Thank you.
