The number of orphans worldwide – more than twice the population of the UK. That’s 153 million children without one or both parents to give them a home, safety…and, most importantly, love.
For many orphans, the threat of poverty is constant: where will the next meal come from? Where are we going to live? If we get sick and can’t afford medicine…will we survive?
And if they make it through this childhood of hunger, poverty and insecurity, they have little hope for a better life. Without an education and the tools to support themselves, there is small chance of a brighter future ahead.
Your sponsorship could mean the world.
Your ongoing assistance ensures that they have a roof over their head, and food on their plates. It will enable them to attend school with books and stationery, as well as provide healthcare when they become ill.
We don’t just take care of their physical wellbeing – like all children, they deserve to be safe and happy too. Your sponsorship will mean they receive Eid presents and attend summer camps, sports classes and fun day trips. A social worker will visit regularly to ensure that everything is going well.
In other words, when you sponsor an orphan, you’re not just giving a gift…you’re giving them an entire childhood.
Islamic Relief already supports over 37,000 orphans around the world – will you join us?
