When you think about orphans, what comes to mind? Maybe you think of kids living in orphanages who have no parents or family. Maybe you think of this as a global problem, not affecting the United States. And maybe you think this is a problem that is simply too big to be solved. In today’s episode of the Q Ideas Podcast, Lindsay Hadley and Elli Oswald dispel each of these myths with the truth about the global orphan crisis—and they share how we can help be part of the solution. Together, they are part of Orphan Myth, a campaign that unites NGOs, child advocacy specialists, influencers, faith leaders and businesses dedicated to help every child belong in a safe loving family.
