Biological parents, and sometimes biological grandparents, are legally responsible for supporting children but in the absence of these or other relatives willing to care for the children, they become a ward of the state, and orphanages are one way of providing for their care, housing and education.
An orphan is a child whose parents are dead and have abandoned them permanently. In common usage, only a child who has lost both parents is called an orphan. When a child losses his father or mother or both, the future of the child becomes uncertain. Food crises, extreme impoverishment, natural calamities, shortage of rainfall, malaria and AIDS are some of the factors contributing to the distressed condition of the people of the country.
