Orphan and Child Welfare
Losing one or both parents is traumatic for any child in any situation. However, in countries where war, famine and AIDS are a part of everyday life, millions of children are orphaned and left to struggle for survival.
Islamic Relief's Orphan Programme is aimed at alleviating the plight of child poverty in the world's poorest communities. This is done through a comprehensive and integrated one-to-one orphan sponsorship programme that takes care of the needs of orphans i.e. health, education and social welfare.
Islamic Relief has been working with orphans since 1986 and now has Orphan programmes, in over 30 countries, supporting more than 30,000 children worldwide. With your help, we can continue to give these vulnerable children the care they need, providing them with food, shelter, healthcare, education and emotional support.
