Education of Orphans
Pakistan, an Islamic Country has a population of 207,736,046 as of today. Most of the people in Pakistan are living below the poverty line and are facing many problems, viz., lack of food, shelter, health care, education and un-employment and thus the people live in utter poverty. Poverty has always been recognized as the major cause of death and disability. Poverty brings on lack of safe Drinking Water, inadequate food, poor health care and poor education. All these will have effect on health.
The poverty situations in Pakistani context, reflects the State of Lahore in Punjab Province. The families in rural areas are normally large and often face the problems and the earning members of the family unable to cope up with the situations. Sometimes they may not get work to earn. Eventually they migrate to other places in search of livelihood or starve to meet death or disease. The struggle of the poor starts in the womb. The child in the womb suffers from the consequences of malnutrition in the mother.
The families that are living in rural areas are daily wages labourers. They are living in utter poverty. They are unable to fetch their square meal a day. Some of the parents admitting their children in private English medium schools. But they are unable to continue their children education because they are unable to pay the fees in the schools. That’s reason the children are dropped from the school.
Poverty has always been recognized as the major cause of disease, death and disability. Now the World Health Organization (WHO) came out with the statement that the Poverty is the “ruthless killer”. Large families in rural areas often face these problems and the earning members of the family unable to cope-up with the situations and survival becomes difficult. The relief often comes in the form of death leaving the children as orphans and destitute. These children starve without shelter, food and clothing and roam along the streets.
