The Mingi Children

These amazing faces in this video are of children who were supposed to be murdered. Their tribe thinks they are cursed and will curse the whole tribe if they are on the land. So the children are to be tied up and tossed into the river to drown. Bale, the first child saved, simply had her top teeth grown in before her bottom. That was her "crime".

This fabulous organization is doing everything they can to help save these children. They have started an orphanage for the children rescued. Even if you do nothing else, just pray for the children and the organization that is trying to save these children from being murdered for absolutely no reason.
