11 yrs old
This is Hamza.
His father died when he was 3 years old.
His mother was left with no financial support and struggled to take care of Hamza and his two brothers, Mohammed and Ahmed.
After losing his father, life became very hard for Hamza. With no sole breadwinner to keep the family afloat, he missed out necessities such as food and clothing. Games, gifts and the equipment needed for school were impossible to afford.
Now, thanks to sponsorship from Orphans in Need, all of this has changed…
Orphans in Need now cover Hamza’s school fees and also provide food and clothing. This means he has a happier family life, and can therefore he can concentrate on his school work. His grades are excellent and he really enjoys going to school, where he has made a lot of friends.
