Children are the most vulnerable among us. We must protect them.

Each day, millions of children across the world face incredible hardship. Struggling to survive against wars, disasters, drought, or disease–they all too often become orphaned as a result.

The world has not been kind to our children, but there is good news: children are resilient. They are sincere. They are survivors.

There is hope around the future for our children. As we envision a better world for them, we must continue to work together to make it a reality. Will you join us in this?

CHILDREN IN NEED

Improving children’s daily lives by safe-guarding them against illness; providing them with educational opportunities; and by giving them access to proper nutrition, water, and sanitation services can also provide a cushion that would help alleviate suffering in emergency situations. Perhaps most important, those basic resources can provide a world of hope to children for a brighter future.

Your investment in Islamic Relief’s Aid for Children In Need means that your support reaches children who just need an opportunity to break the chains of poverty around them. This fund is global, which allows IRUSA the flexibility to effectively send emergency aid or build innovative programs that address the unique needs of children in their communities. When the call for relief comes, your support here means we will be ready to serve with efficiency and immediacy.

PLEASE NOTE: Donations made to IRUSA's Children in Need fund may serve urgent or long-term programs that support children in the United States or across the world.

ORPHAN FAMILY SUPPORT

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 orphansupport@irusa.org.
