“I and the one who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like these two” – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them close together.’’ (Bukhari)
In the midst of unimaginable violence in Gaza and the West Bank, it's the most vulnerable who bear the brunt. Children surviving the war face lasting trauma, while many will never see their parents again.
The ongoing bombardment, the deadliest Gaza has ever witnessed, has left thousands of orphans. Currently, 6,432 orphans are registered with Human Appeal, including over 1,500 in Palestine. Unfortunately, this number is expected to surge once the bombing ceases.
Every orphaned child deserves a caring sponsor to ensure their education, safe housing, and access to essentials like food and healthcare. Become a sponsor for a child in Palestine today. Your support will provide them with security and the chance for a better future.
Globally, an estimated 143 to 210 million children are orphaned, each bearing the traumatic loss of one or both parents, often in the harshest circumstances. Support these children and be a source of mercy in their lives.
