Orphan Sponsorship

Orphan child

The Prophet (PBUH) promised closeness in Heaven to those who care for an orphan. Be a mercy to an orphaned child this Ramadan for £35 a month, and reap the endless rewards.

Sponsor an orphan

“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)

Care for an orphan today, and reap the blessings in the hereafter. Not only did the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) promise closeness to him in Heaven for the person who supports an orphan, but he also told us of the multiplied blessings for good deeds in Ramadan.

If you’ve been thinking of sponsoring an orphan, there’s no better time to secure your legacy than in the month of blessings.

There’s also never been a greater need for your care. Each day of Ramadan, another 5,700 children will wake up in fear, newly-orphaned and at risk.

They’re thrown into vulnerability suddenly, often facing hunger, disease, exploitation and extreme cycles of poverty that they need your help to break out of.

When you sponsor a child, you give them the opportunity that all children deserve – a chance to be healthy, protected, and educated. To qualify for our sponsorship, the child must stay in school, ensuring they gain the education and skills for a better tomorrow.

What will your sponsorship provide?

£35 per month (or £420 per year) helps to cover an orphan child’s:

  • food
  • shelter
  • clothes
  • healthcare
  • and school supplies

Importantly, it also makes sure they stay in school and aren’t forced to work to support themselves.

And it’s Zakat-applicable too!

Currently our sponsors are helping 18,495 orphans across nine countries, but we have thousands more who are registered with us and urgently waiting for someone to sponsor them.

Become a sponsor in this month of mercy, and help give a child a safer today, and a brighter tomorrow.

Why sponsor through Human Appeal?

We’ve been helping supporters to sponsor orphans for 30 years. Currently, our supporters are sponsoring 18,495 orphans across nine countries. It’s Zakat-applicable, allowing you to fulfil this beautiful Islamic duty, while reaping the blessings of Ramadan.

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.

Protection, safeguarding, and accountability

Our number one priority in all our sponsorship programme is protecting the rights, dignity and safety of the children we help. Our vigorous staff background checks and protocols, as well as our child protection officers and policies ensure that all children we work with are protected from harm.
