Orphan Sponsorship

Sponsor an orphan and build a legacy

"I and the one who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like these two." – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them close together. (Bukhari)

When you sponsor an orphan with Human Appeal, you enable a child to go to school, eat well, and stay safe, warm, and healthy, providing the foundations needed for a brighter future. It gives a child some of the life supporting benefits of being in a family, however far away.

Give monthly for $50, or annually for $600 – that’s 12 months of blessings packed into a single donation. Plus, our orphan sponsorship program is Zakat-eligible, so you can fulfill this pillar of Islam whilst helping a vulnerable child.

The worldwide orphan crisis

There are over 100 million orphans worldwide, with 5,700 children becoming orphans every day due to war, natural disaster, poverty, disease, and lack of access to medical care.

Every year, 14,050,000 orphans grow up without ever having been part of a loving family. Every 2.2 seconds a child leaves an orphanage or foster care with no family to belong to and no place to call home.

With less than 1% of all orphan children adopted into loving families, the rest of the world’s millions of orphaned, abandoned, and homeless children need our support.

Honor a Prophetic tradition

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) - himself an orphan - emphasized caring for orphans and promised those who did so a special place in Jannah. It's a testament to the beauty of supporting the world’s most vulnerable - the children who have lost their caregivers.

When you adopt an orphan in our sponsorship program, you’ll receive two reports each year (we’re the only charity to do this). You’ll learn about their housing, education, favorite subjects, and hobbies. You’ll even receive a drawing or letter from them.

Trust our experience and child-focused care

Trust Human Appeal’s 32 years of expertise in nurturing orphaned children. Across all 14 countries where we sponsor orphans, we have a dedicated child safeguarding officer in place. All staff working with children receive comprehensive training in child protection. Our local staff check in on all sponsored orphans to make sure they are well, in school, and receiving the care you intended, and we transparently report back to you how the child is in your biannual reports.

We also train mothers and caregivers on child protection, helping them to protect these orphans from common risks. We also work to help families with orphans in other ways, such as training widowed mothers to create a livelihood to support her orphaned children.

Today, our adopters sponsor 23,000 orphans in 14 countries, including Albania, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Nigeria, North Macedonia, Pakistan, Palestine, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, and Yemen.

Human Appeal is committed to providing aid in the country or program that you select. In the event we complete the program, exceed the required funds, or are denied access to a particular country for reasons beyond our control, Human Appeal reserves the right to reallocate your donation to another program where it is needed most.
