Why the Orphans?
There are many children across the world that are left unprotected and vulnerable due to war, poverty and hunger. Thousands of children in Africa have been left orphaned due to the severe weather conditions, civil war and reasons alike. In regions like Aceh, Pakistan, Bangladesh natural disasters have destroyed almost everything, and have left children orphaned and without protection.
Orphan Project Regions
War Zones and Refugee Camps: Our work on orphans continue in active war zones and refugee camps. We prioritise the health and nutrition needs and provide our children with these as they are left neglected amid the insecurity caused by war. We ensure that the children that become orphans inside the refugee camps close to warzones are brought into contact with any relatives or family members within the same camps, or when this is not the case, we make sure we provide emotional and financial support for the child.
Natural Disaster Zones: In our Orphans project, our priority is to save lives at first. Emergency relief is then granted and children left orphaned identified, where we then make sure they reach safety and in proper contemporary shelter. We provide for the children until we identify family members. in cases where this is not possible, we work with local organisations and accommodate in finding sustainable shelter as a long term solution within the framework of the local structure.
Permanent Hunger and Poverty Zones: Our project includes all children affected by hunger and poverty, including those that have lost their parents due to hunger and famine.
