Orphan Sponsorship

The Prophet (PBUH) promised closeness in Heaven to those who care for an orphan. Be a mercy to an orphaned child for £35 a month (as little as £1.15 per day) or £420 per year, and reap the endless rewards.

Sponsor a child

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)

In his lifetime, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) cared for orphans, and promised a unique reward for those who did the same.

Currently, we have 6,432 orphans registered with us, and urgently awaiting support. Please help us to care for them by becoming their sponsor. Care for an orphan today, and reap the blessings in the hereafter.

There’s also never been a greater need for your care. As we rise each morning to a world of increasing hunger and insecurity, another 5,700 children will wake up in fear, newly-orphaned and at risk.

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

Your one-to-one sponsorship will help a child to break that cycle, and 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 19,996 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.

Charity brings protection

It’s an incredible blessing to be able to give, no matter how little, as charity offers blessings and protection in this life and the hereafter, and transforms the lives of people facing hardship around the world.

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

Give, and spread mercy to a child who depends on the Ummah for protection, and reap the unique blessings of charity.

Why sponsor through Human Appeal?

We’ve been helping supporters to sponsor orphans for 30 years. Currently, our supporters are sponsoring over 19,996 orphans across nine countries. It’s Zakat-applicable, allowing you to fulfil this beautiful Islamic duty, while helping to change young lives.

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 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.
