Human Appeal Orphan Sponsorship
A staggered 387 million children worldwide live in extreme poverty. Their families struggle to provide them with enough food to eat or basic healthcare. According to the latest figures from UNICEF, nearly 160 million children are stunted from poor nutrition.
For children who have lost one or both parents, life can be incredibly hard. There are more than 140 million orphans around the world, many of them living in abject poverty and forced to go to work. Orphans are far more livingly to be out of school or victims of child marriage. They are vulnerable to exploitation, abuse, malnutrition and disease. This is a global crisis.Sponsor an Orphan
At Human Appeal, we put orphans first
Human Appeal sponsors vulnerable orphans in 10 countries, including Syria, Palestine, Pakistan, Senegal, Sudan and Yemen. Our sponsorship programme safeguards innocent children and supports their basic monthly costs, providing them with vital necessities like food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and education.
What does Islam say about sponsoring an orphan?
By sponsoring an orphan, you can give an innocent little one the chance of a safe and happy childhood, and a brighter future as an adult.
In Islam, sponsoring an orphan is one of the most righteous deeds a Muslim can perform. 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 apart.
What can you expect when you sponsor an orphan?
At Human Appeal, we provide one-to-one sponsorships. You can receive information about your orphan and watch them flourish year after year. Just 83p a day or £25 will keep your orphan safe and help provide them with food, education, medicine and clothing.Sponsor an Orphan
“Hello! My name is Uzma. I live in District Rahim Yar Khan in Pakistan with my mother and four sisters and brothers. After my daddy died in 2008, we had nothing. There was a hole in our roof and the rain used to leak in.
“Thanks to my sponsor at Human Appeal, we have found a better place to live and I am receiving an education. In the holy month of Ramadan, we received a food pack and it was fantastic. Life is so much better now and I love going to school!”
Other ways to support vulnerable children
If you’re not able to commit to a monthly orphan sponsorship, there are plenty of other ways you can help to give innocent little ones a brighter future.
You can make a one off donation to our Orphans and Children Fund or give to our Education Fund to ensure that vulnerable children can go to school.
By donating to our Jerusalem Orphanage Fund, you can help to keep orphaned girls safe and provide them with a supportive and secure environment to grow up in.
