Some of the children in the Philippines orphanages have been left to die after being sent to the orphanage to be trained to be nurses.
The Philippines is home to more than 20,000 children.
Children are often sent there for training because they can be taught to speak and read, and the country is a relatively poor country.
But many have been sent there because their parents are too ill to care for them.
The children are taught the basics of nursing, and there are even programs to help them make a living.
“There’s a need for more trained nurses, but they’re too old for the training,” Dr Mary Ellen Reyes, head of the National Health and Welfare Agency (NHWA), told AFP news agency.
Children are often kept in the orphanages for a number of years before they are returned to their families, and many of the parents have been killed by the government.
When a child dies, it’s a big shock for the family.
But most orphans are sent to care homes and a few are also sent to orphanages, said Dr Reyes.
“So that’s why there are children dying,” she said.
More than 100,000 orphans are in care in the country, but there are no government officials who monitor them, nor does there seem to be a system for dealing with them, according to the NHWA.
But the orphanaged children have been forced to leave behind their parents.
In many cases, they are forced to marry young men from the local village who have been brought in to care them, and are often forced to do so by the father.
In some cases, it seems the children are forced by their families to be sex slaves.
There are no records on the number of children who have died in these care homes, but the Philippines government has denied there are more than 1,000.
Some of the orphaned children are being fed by other orphans who are paid by the orphanaging company, while others are being housed in foster care homes.
The government said it was “extremely concerned” about the situation in the care homes in Marawi City, where the first raid on the orphanations was carried out on April 30.
A man who was the first to enter the orphanaring area told AFP that he saw about 20 children at the centre, including about 5-year-olds.
“I saw them sitting in chairs, and I told my friend, ‘Look, we can’t have that here,'” he said.
