These institutes are incapable of adequately caring for children, robbing them of their childhoods and their institutions, [...] Lumos works to transform systems of caring for children, closing institutions, reunited families, and preventing other children from being institutionalized at all. Your donation not only helps individual children now, but also ensures the future for generations to come.”
