Miracle Foundation’s 12 Rights of an Orphan Child

The Miracle Foundation has entitled its children to 12 basic rights, inspired by 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Our work revolves around these rights and delves into the intricacies and requisites of each of these rights.
