Child-headed households in Rwanda
Compassion's Highly Vulnerable Child Specialist in Rwanda asks us to pray for child-headed households.¬†
Rwanda has the highest proportion of orphans and child-headed households in the world.¬†These are children who have lost their parents to HIV and AIDS, young people who lost families during the 1994 genocide and children whose relatives have been imprisoned for genocide-related crimes. UNICEF estimates that more than 100,000 orphans live in child-headed households in the country.¬†
- Please pray for God to provide his peace, grace and wisdom for those growing up in such challenging environments.
- Pray for the provision of foster homes and foster parents for children and young people in need.
