Dear Volunteer

This animated video from Forget Me Not and The Umbrella Foundation, tells the story of a young child placed in an orphanage and highlights the pain and trauma of family separation, the impacts of a revolving door of volunteers on children in institutions, and the ways in which volunteering fuels the orphanage industry. It is addressed to those who volunteer in orphanages, calling on people to reconsider their decisions and do their research before volunteering. "Dear Volunteer," says the video description, "it's time to end orphanage volunteering and reunite more children with their families."
