Why Give To Orphans?

Helping those who cannot help themselves

"Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfarer." (Muslim)

Who could be more deserving of our love, help and protection than the child who has no one?

There are more than 200 million orphaned children around the world and many of them already come from disadvantaged backgrounds. As well as losing a parent, these children also lose their right to an education, the sustenance of a nutritious meal, the protection of shelter and the love and guidance of an adult.

The responsibility of caring for the orphans falls on all of us.  Over the last two decades, we have developed a successful one-to-one sponsorship program that ensures an orphan child receives everything they need to thrive and flourish in their communities, including, vital health services, nutritious meals, and ongoing security and support. We work with a wide range of communities, each with their own culture, customs, and unique challenges, and tailor our care to meet the needs of each child.

How We Help

Our orphan sponsorship program ensures that each orphan has:

An empowering education

We believe that education is the key to unlocking lasting and powerful change that does not only benefit a child, but their wider family and entire community too. This is why we make sure every single one of our children is enrolled in school and we provide additional support where necessary.

The right support structures

We provide a range of services to support the welfare of our children, including crucial psycho-social counselling by dedicated staff to ensure that every child is healthy and happy.

Maintaining health and nutrition

We make sure that every child receives a healthy and filling meal every day and regular medical check-ups throughout the school year.
