Over the past year, children have had to adapt to a new life in which their homes, families, friends, schools and almost everything else has changed forever.
Islamic Relief has been caring for orphans in Pakistan-administered Kashmir for years. This support was extended to many more children who lost one or both of their parents in the earthquake.
Through our one-to-one orphan sponsorship programme, individual donors are able to sponsor a child and meet his or her living costs including school fees and medical care. The child’s mother or guardian is also supported to ensure the child’s welfare is not compromised due to their vulnerable circumstances.
Islamic Relief donors around the world are now sponsoring 1,300 children in earthquake affected areas.
