We recently posted some extracts from Lumos‘s annual review for 2013 (an extract is quoted above). Now, the charity has released an infographic, recording in numbers what the charity has achieved in 2013.
From the press release:
The growing global momentum to free children from harmful institutionalised and orphanage care was boosted this week (5-8 August) when over 40 senior government figures from ten countries around the globe come to London to learn how to transform their care systems.

It looks like the charity is making a difference, helped by the support of all of you out there – let’s hope that Lumos can continue to make a difference!
