The Yaysan PAK Orphanage provides a place for children who are (half-)orphaned or who come from either broken homes or families that are too poor to take care of their own children.
The orphanage offers the children a safe and comfortable place where they have the opportunity to receive an education, food, and good childhood experiences.
In additional to those benefits, the most important element of the Yaysan PAK Orphanage’s care is that the orphanage employees love the children and take care of them. Children of all backgrounds are welcome in the orphanage, as admission is based solely on need.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
