Run for our Orphan Sponsorship Programme

Today, another 5,700 more children in the world became orphans, facing hunger, disease, exploitation, and extreme cycles of poverty. You can help break that vicious cycle by raising money to cover the cost of food, shelter, clothes, healthcare, and school learning materials.

Human Appeal has been sponsoring orphans for some 30 years. Thanks to our donors, we currently support over 22,000 orphans across nine countries, including Iraq, Lebanon, Macedonia, Palestine, Pakistan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Syria, and Yemen. We know sponsorship can change a whole future, and our programme has been developed to put the child’s needs first.

The Messenger (PBUH) promised to be close in heaven to the one who cares for an orphan: “Whoever embraces an orphan of two Muslim parents by feeding him and giving him drink until he is independent of him, Paradise will certainly be necessary for him.” (Malik ibn Al-Harith)
