Pastoral care to the marginalized with special reference to orphanaged children
The plight of the marginalised was the point of departure for this research, with special emphasis on orphan boys. The specific circumstances under which the child was removed from his negative circumstances, his past, his adoption in the children’s home and the special needs and problems he has in the children’s home are explored. In this article, Biblical principles for the care of orphanaged children were generated and specific attention was given to God’s emphasis on and passion for the marginalised – with special reference to orphanaged children. Attention is given to the Biblical mandate, respon- sibility and command to the church to be involved in the lives of orphanaged children. Conclusions are derived from the lite- rature study as well as from a limited phenomenological study which was done through analyses of questionnaires designed to address the research hypotheses. It is hoped that reasons for the lack of interest in and involvement with orphanaged children will be revealed.
