There are an estimated 153 million orphans worldwide, with around 5,700 more children becoming orphans, every day. As the most vulnerable members of society, they often face hunger, disease, exploitation and extreme cycles of poverty they will never break out of.
Your sponsorship will help to give a child the opportunity all children deserve – a chance to be healthy, protected, and educated.
Our Little Human Appeal programme helps you to support an orphan in a big way. That’s because we offer one-to-one sponsorship, which means you really can change the world for a little one.
Continue the legacy of the prophet this Eid al-Adha by sponsoring an orphan, and benefit from the mercy and blessings of Dhul Hijjah.
Why sponsor through Human Appeal?
We’ve been helping supporters to sponsor orphans for 29 years. Currently, our supporters are sponsoring 12,000 orphans across nine countries. We’ve witnessed how one sponsorship can change a whole future, and we’ve learnt to develop a programme that puts the child’s needs first. All our work is overseen by our child protection specialist, who ensures that children are never put at further risk.
In order to qualify for child sponsorship, an orphaned child must remain in school, which safeguards their right to an education and a future, and helps to give them the tools to support themselves once they become young adults in the world.
Sponsoring an orphan is once of the most blessed and rewarding acts a Muslim can do. And it’s some of our most impactful and precious work, which we carry out with great care, and a sense of Amanah – the trust that you give to us when you sponsor an orphan, and the trust that that orphan puts in us, to make sure they are fed, warm, protected and cared for.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “I and the one who sponsors an orphan will be in Paradise like these two” – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them close together.In Islam, sponsoring an orphaned child is one of the most righteous deeds a Muslim can perform.
