Who will care for the orphans?

Many of the poorest countries in the world also have thousands of orphaned children. Wars, disease, famines and other natural disasters have deprived them of their parents and relatives, leaving them alone and frightened to face a dangerous and uncertain future.

And in countries where others are already engaged in a daily struggle simply to survive, who is there to look after them. The answer is no-one. Every day many of these children die simply because they have no-one to provide for their needs.

Children at most risk

The terrible floods in Pakistan, earthquake in Haiti and conflicts in Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir and Afghanistan, continue to destroy lives and create appalling poverty in their wake. Inevitably children suffer the most.

It’s heartbreaking to see young children desperately trying to act as parents to their young brothers and sisters. Many end up scavenging for food on rubbish tips or turning to prostitution just to feed themselves.

Please make a donation today of £100 or whatever you can afford, so that one more vulnerable child can be saved from poverty.

Amina’s story

Just three years old, Amina was the youngest in a large family of children who were orphaned when their parents both died within a year of each other. They ended up begging for food from neighbours before being taken in at an orphanage in a nearby town.

Here Amina and her siblings were able to be vaccinated against disease and to be properly fed and cared for. At last they had some hope of a better future.

And the incredible thing is that it costs just 50p to vaccinate a child in Bangladesh. And just £2 to feed them for a week. It’s so little, yet it can mean the difference between life and death.

The Generation Project

Saving children’s lives is only the start of our journey with them. For example, our Generation Project was specially set up to help women and children to develop the necessary skills and have the resources to set up their own business to earn an income. Typically this involves skills like sewing, farming, selling vegetables or trading goods they have made themselves.

The income they make helps these people to overcome poverty and live with dignity, independence and freedom.

As you can see, it costs so little to save and improve the life of an orphaned child. Please give most generously today to help the children who have nothing. Thank you.
