Orphans are the most vulnerable in any society. After having lost one or both parents, these children are at risk of a life of poverty and sickness. In situations of conflict or natural disaster, the lack of access to basic necessities such as food, water and shelter results in displacement and a struggle to survive.
Our global efforts help sponsor over 85,000 orphans around the world, transforming their lives with opportunities and aid.
Islamic Relief’s Orphan Sponsorship Programme is one of the best in its field and targets numerous countries in need. This is simply because Islamic Relief believes in protecting and fulfilling the rights of children.
Our Orphan Sponsorship Programme allows for you to provide for the needs and wellbeing of an orphan, through a one-to-one model of ongoing holistic support.
For many orphaned children, the reality of poverty is a daily burden. Left wondering: where will my next meal come from? Where are we going to live? If we get sick and can’t afford medicine…will we survive? – every day is a challenge.
Deprived of much-needed educational support, health care and critical age-appropriate safe places to play and grow, these children are incredibly vulnerable and face a bleak future.
They need critical care and support – and that’s where Islamic Relief comes in.
Sponsor an orphan today.
In the case of death, sponsorship may be transferred to a sibling if they are of sponsorship age.
In each family, one child in every two can be sponsored, providing of course that sponsors can be found. This can be modified by the field office upon approval of the Child Welfare Department if there is a particular need for more children within a family to be supported.
