In my last post HERE, I mentioned a horrific video showing the condition of children in orphanages in Bulgaria. Please understand this--I am not being melodramatic when I say that conditions compare to the worst concentration camps the Nazis maintained, but what's worse, all of the "inmates" are fatherless children.
I want to first show you a "teaser" below. If you speed up the video to the 1:52 mark, it's only eight minutes long. But I can assure you, it will be eight minutes that will change your life. I suggest you speed it up because the first part only shows an older orphan who is upset that another child broke her handbag.
After you watch this teaser, you can click on the next video, which is the full 89-minute version. "Bulgaria's Abandoned Children" is a BBC documentary produced by their reporter Kate Blewitt. Many of you may remember Kate from when she produced the documentary on "dying rooms" in China several years ago.
Kate spent nearly a year in Bulgaria so that she could depict an accurate account of daily life (and death) in these orphanages. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND WATCH THIS FULL VERSION. But be warned, there
are parts which may not be suitable for younger children.
In the full version, you will learn how many, many children enter the orphanage at infancy because of a disability like blindness, deafness, Down syndrome, or autism. Sadly, you will see how these children were healthy otherwise, but institutionalism has caused them to exhibit at best autistic tendencies and at worst, insanity or even death!
But for now, take a look at this teaser:
And now here is the full 89-minute version of the documentary:
Please know that this is not some freak occurrence. It is prevalent all over the face of the globe, whether the countries are developing or are first-world. You heard in the documentary that Bulgaria is a member of the European Union. Unheard of. Until now.
Spread the word, church, and spread the prayer!
