How to Sponsor a Child 28th February, 2017
Throughout the world, a child is orphaned every 22 seconds.
That is a staggering statistic that really makes you stop and think. Life can be difficult for orphans, but in certain parts of the world the necessary infrastructure just isn’t in place to be able to help these children and give them the support that they desperately need.
One of the best ways to help these orphans is through a dedicated campaign, like Islamic Help’s sponsor a child programme. Sponsoring a child provides essential supplies for children and orphans, including food, clothing, and shelter. Islamic Help also gives these children access to education with the aim of improving their future livelihood prospects.
Aims and Objectives
With your help, we are currently supporting more than 2500 orphans and providing them with the means to thrive and work their way out of poverty.
Islamic Help’s orphan sponsorship programme aims to:
- Organise proper shelter and accommodation with a family or in an orphanage
- Give children an education, including offering extra-curricular activities
- Provide support for children who have been victims of conflict or disaster
- Provide proper health care and immunisations to children
So Why Should You Sponsor a Child?
Aside from the benefits listed above, sponsoring a child is the ideal way to improve an orphan’s life and help to raise them up out of poverty. Family is one of the most important things in life, and when a child has to face growing up without their parents, understandably it can be a struggle. That is why the process of sponsoring orphans is so important – without family, it is our job to step in and provide for these children.
On a personal level, sponsoring a child is a real investment. Sacrificing your hard-earned money to help improve the life of another is an incredibly selfless act – and one which is sure to bring great rewards. Helping to build a brighter future for children who are stuck in poverty is essential, not just for the short term, but for the future too. These orphaned children are the next generation – they are our future, and it is our job to look after them. Just think – by supporting our child sponsorship campaign, you are not only investing in the future of one child, but you are also investing in the future of children around the world.
