    CHILDREN/THE CHILDREN in orphanage were not treated well.

    This is not my homework.

    Which of the following is correct and, if the both are correct, is there any difference in meaning?

    1:-Children in orphanage were not treated well.
    2:-The children in orphanage were not treated well.


    Thanks for replying.

    Re: CHILDREN/THE CHILDREN in orphanage were not treated well.

    Both are correct with a "the" before "orphanage". They have the same meaning.
