Stephanie’s Story

Stephanie Fast is the name she was given in America. She does not know her original name, birth date, or place of birth, other than that she is Korean. Because she is biracial, Stephanie Fast was abandoned, left in a strange place to fend for herself, likely to die of starvation, disease—or worse.

Stephanie has made it her life’s work to try to help rescue every orphan out there—terrified, hungry, hurting, abused. If you believe that how we treat the most vulnerable among us determines our own humanity you will want to read Stephanie’s book—you will want to get to know Stephanie’s story.

Learn More About Orphans

There are three countries in Asia where 10% or more of their children are orphans: Afghanistan 12%, Lao People's Democratic Republic 10%, Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) 10%.*

The proportion of children who are orphans generally increases with age with just over half of orphans above the age of 12. However, 12% of orphaned children 0-18 years of age are under 5. These are the most vulnerable children.*

There are more than 87 million orphans in Asia, double sub-Saharan Africa's more than 43 million.*

A conservative estimate of orphans in the world is 143 million.* Some organizations place it currently as high as 153 million or more.

More current Orphan statistics and information can be found through a simple search on Google or the search engine of your choice. We purposely used older statistics so as not to embellish the orphan crisis. At the same time, these statistics have largely not improved. Millions of children become orphans each year. There is much to be done!
