|Orphans living in poverty can be exploited by unscrupulous criminals who take advantage of their situation. Children receive pennies for working long days in often dangerous circumstances. But they have no choice. The alternative is starvation.|
|Orphans in Need sponsors thousands of orphans around the world. The generosity of our donors pays for food, clothing, education and medicine for these vulnerable children who may live in: Gaza (Palestine), Somalia, Gambia, Iraq, India, Kashmir, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.|
Many of the children in our care have received no formal education. We give them the support they need to get an education and gain qualifications, as more fortunate children are able to. They are encouraged to reach their full potential and to go to college or university for further education. We help finance orphans to attain professional qualifications. Hopefully they will then go on to become doctors, lawyers, teachers, civil servants or into another vocation they choose.
Many more children need our help and do not yet have a sponsor. Orphans in Need have over 2,000 children waiting to be sponsored.
|Sponsoring a child for £30 a month(or £360 per year) could provide:|
