All children, particularly orphans, need a safe place to grow. Caring for orphans and nurturing them with the basics like food and clean clothes, and access to education increases the likelihood of them breaking the cycle of poverty and bringing change to impoverished communities.
Most of the time when a child's father dies and they are orphaned, they are left in orphanages because their widowed mothers cannot afford to take care of them. These widows put their trust in the orphanage to feed, clothe and educate their children and provide them with a stronger start in life. However, many orphanages are either too crowded or don't have enough supplies and resources for the orphans meaning, many children need more support.
Our Global Orphan Care Programme exists to support thousands of orphans on a global scale, giving aid to orphan homes that are already established but lack the support they need to care for the orphans they house. By giving aid to the orphan homes we work with, we will have a greater effect on the lives of more children. Read more about this, here.
The extent of Global Orphan Care goes beyond giving aid to orphan homes. It includes rescuing orphaned children who are sleeping in the streets and supporting unsponsored children and widowed families by providing them with life-saving food, medical care and much more.
An Orphan Rescue Kit takes a child off the streets. They are then registered with the local authorities and given a medical checkup and treatment if needed. They are given new clothes and shoes, and counselling treatment to help them overcome any trauma they’ve been through. It is the beginning of a better life for them and we will be here to continue to support them throughout their time in the orphan home.
A simple donation to Global Orphan Care can:
£42 per month can go towards improving all areas of a child’s life, providing what’s needed to create a stable and steady lifestyle such as clothing, medical care and education.
A donation of £150 pays for an orphan rescue kit, helping a child to get back on their feet and settle into life in a caring orphan home.
A £500 donation provides enough clothing for 100 orphans, ensuring they don’t go cold in the chilly winters and are comfortable during the hot summers.
We also offer Orphan Sponsorship from £30 a month and you can donate to our Widow and Orphan Food Parcel programme or support our flagship project, the Orphans Village. Your donations enable us to offer a brighter future for the members of society that commonly get left behind, you'll help widows and orphans rise out of poverty and live comfortably with the basic resources all human beings should have access to.
Without your contributions, we wouldn’t be able to help as many orphans and children in need as we do, and we are grateful for all our donors for funding our orphans and supporting our charity efforts. Together with your support, we hope to reach even more communities and provide hope for children in need across the world.
Please, give today and be the difference our orphan children need for a better future.
