They need a warrior.

There are 200+ kids listed on Reece's Rainbow, some in great orphanages where they are loved by the nannies & directors, some in "In between" orphanages where the children aren't ignored but they don't get very much attention, then there are those "few" orphanages where the kids or ignored & only touched when their cribs need changing & when they are fed.  Which isn't very often.  The kids in "The Bad Place"  are VERY small & malnourished like Miss Penny. 

Penny, 11 years old & weighs 21 pounds. 
Very small, thin, & malnourished.  The kids in "The Bad Place"  are fed maybe once a day, they are fed a few (litteraly a few 2-3) spoon fulls of gross bitter mush, & are lucky if their diapers are changed once.   Then they lay alone in cribs, banging their heads against the rails, biting their hands, inflicting any pain on them selves so they can at least feel something.  Kids like Penny or Payton...

Payton, is 8 years old & weighs 17 pounds.

Get me thinking.   When your child gets a diaper rash you put ointment on it & it clears up with in a week or so right?  Well imagine what it's like for these kids who sit in nasty dirty diapers all day long.  They don't have any one to make sure their diaper is changed the second it's dirty to help the rash heal.  But instead they have to sit in the dirty diaper as the rash worsens.  How about when your child gets sick, you give them medicine & have them lay down until they are better, depending on what they have they are usally better with in a week or so right?  Well imagine what it's like for these kids who have no medical attention what-so-ever.   When they are sick, well that's just it they are sick.  There is no medicine given or love shown.  With how malnourished they are just imagine how terrible their immune systems are.  I'm sure they are sick quite often!  
Like little Marsha, she needs a shunt for her hydrocephalus, to drain the fluid around her brain.  But she wont get that in "The Bad Place" 

Marsha, in need of medical attention. 

This is why these kids NEED warriors!  They need someone to speak  yell, for them!  For their lives, so that they can be saved & have a second chance at life!  So that they can know what love is like!  These kids need us!  So I will not rest until they are saved & LOVED! :)  Will you join with us in shouting for these kids?  Will YOU be their warrior?
