amazing speech. interesting details:
* approx 80% of children in orphanages are not orphans
* children raised in orphanages are 500x more likely to commit suicide, and 40x more likely to have a criminal record.
* even assuming the very best orphanage, these children re-experience the cycle of abandonment every 8 hours when workers go off-shift
With a happy ending involving family-based care.
Cambodia won’t be faced with the false dilemma of leaving kids in orphanages vs shipping them out to other countries. Do watch the whole thing.
