Orphan Family Support
50,000 orphans currently sponsored by the global Islamic Relief community masha’Allah!
Caring for orphans is especially important to the Islamic Relief family. Islamic Relief USA has dedicated programs to do just that: Orphan
Orphan Family Support means you help uplift an orphan and his or her family into self-reliance and independence by giving them the tools they need to thrive! What’s more: The family gets the medical and psychological support they need, all while building a sustainable living so that they can break the chains of poverty, and rely on themselves for years beyond what a traditional sponsorship would offer. And donations toward Orphan Support are flexible—you can offer support whenever you’re ready, and as often as you like.
Join the thousands of dedicated, caring humanitarians who are caring for orphans today! In Gaza, Palestine, our donors’ support focuses on education and vocational training, along with monthly financial support. For just over $2/day ($800/year), you can give an orphan and her entire family tools they can use to thrive — for life!
In our Bangladesh program, all of the school-age orphans are attending school, and all of their guardians — often widowed mothers — have received training and started businesses so they can support their children on their own. This gives them the incredible gift of self-sufficiency. Local staff report that many of them are breaking free of the cycle of poverty.
Of course, every country is different, and, sometimes, programs for orphans are customized to meet particular conditions. For details, please connect with us at 1-855-447-1001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
