We serve the needs of orphans and vulerable children around the world. Many of these orphans are on the brink because of war, famine, abandonment, rape, poverty, and disease.
Every 14 seconds a child is orphaned because of war, natural disaster, poverty, or disease. Right now, there are 15 million orphans due to AIDS alone. The children often survive alone, without the nurturing they need. Many have suffered the trauma of seeing one or both parents die as a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It's estimated that less than 1% of the world's orphans will be adopted into loving homes.
Veronica's Story is helping to care for these children.
1. Veronica's Story is helping to care for orphans and empower women and girls to help bring an end to the orphan crisis.

3. "Veronica" was the Founder's first adopted daughter who died of AIDS. She met her while shooting a documentary for Fox 5 News, in South Africa.
