13 yrs old
This is Nafees.
He has lost both his parents.
He lost his father when he was just 3 years old, and his mother when he was only 5.
Since he lost his parents he has been living under the guardianship of his grandfather, who was previous a labourer but is now too old to work.
Due to his grandfather’s age and inability to financially support them both, Nafees had to leave school.
Now, thanks to sponsorship from Orphans in Need, all of this has changed…
Nafees’ school fees are now covered by Orphans in Need.
He’s now able to continue his education, and is also provided with food, clothing and other basic necessities.
Nafees is happier now. He says:
“I don’t see any future if the support from Orphans in Need stops. I will always be thankful to Orphans in Need for coming in to save me from living a life without any meaning.”
