Millions of orphan children were kidnapped. Most of the kidnapped children are girls. They are making money over these children.  We must give our hands to these children. If we do not own them, others do and use them in various ways. We say let every family and organization have an orphan. As missionary foundations reach their hands to millions of orphans why don’t us own millions of orphans?”
