Planet sorrow

A Devastating Decision for Ill Ethiopian Mothers (

A world of sorrow.
...Six-year-old Radeat Behonegn used to spend hours at the window of the Hope for Children orphanage, waiting for her parents to return. They left her here two years ago, and soon afterward died of AIDS related illnesses...

...Children dropped off at the orphanage can grow hysterical, sending others into a panic. Recently, Tamrat had to start a new policy, telling parents they should bring their children in to play a few times and then, on the last day, just leave quietly. Later, the children are told that their parents are dying.
The fathers in these stories are often despicable. CARE is open for business.
