Abandoned and left to die. This is the fate of an increasing number of unwanted babies that end up in toilets and rubbish bins among other places. A few are found dead while others are saved in the nick of time.
With this in mind I'd like to share some info on OrphanCARE, an NGO dedicated to solving this issue.

What we do
OrphanCARE is working closely with the Ministry of Women, Family & Community Development to expedite the adoption process whereby abandoned and orphaned babies and children are quickly matched up and placed with suitable parents.
We undertake awareness programmes to make society recognise that orphans ans abandoned children should not be left permanently in orphanages or shelter homes.
We have a database of interested adoptive parents with complete background profiles and are working with orphanages, single mother shelter homes, hospitals and clinics to provide suitable families for orphans and unwanted or abandoned babies.
OrphanCARE is a non-profit organisation established in April 2008, under the patronage of HRH Sultanah Pahang Hajjah Kalsom. It aims to give every orphan and abandoned baby a chance to feel love and care in the security of a family in accordance to our tagline "Every child needs a family".
Most orphanages are often ill-resourced to provide children the kind of love, attention and security that could be offered by families. Orphans and children who spend large parts of their childhood in orphanages, in large number of cases grow up (unsurprisingly!) with low self-esteem resulting in behavioral problems, delinquency, and poor academic performance. Many leave orphanages at the age of 18 without a family support system, making it difficult for them to start a new life.
Unwed mothers whom abandon their babies are mostly young and come under pressure arising from social stigma and legal implications, compounded by a sense of hopelessness due to not knowing where to seek help. OrphanCARE was set up to discourage such women from abandoning their babies by providing the assurance that their babies would be placed in good homes.
