The majority of countiries, nowadays struggling with economic and social issues, do not have the opportunity to achieve proper education. We can see this situation as a girl who is orphaned due to the civil war in Africa and has to cut her school in the middle, and sometimes as a boy whose dream is not realized since the school was closed due to financial situations and political pressures in Central Asia.
We believe that every child must have the best opportunity to learn education. Economic, social, physical, geographical or any individual situation of the person should not interfere with education. As APCF, we aimed to provide this opportunity to all those who demand education without discrimination.
With a focus on sustainability our programmes give support to the most needy. Orphans in Need believe that every child, everywhere, has the right to a happy and healthy life. This means we work hard to find solutions that are sustainable. Sponsoring an orphaned child bestows the gift of a new life and brighter future for children who may be left helpless and alone. Orphan sponsorship is a vital lifeline for many vulnerable young children. All over the world there are children who do not have the loving support of a family. Children whose only shelter is a piece of plastic sheeting or a cardboard box, living day to day with the risk of abuse, neglect and exploitation.
For just £30, that’s around a third of your average weekly shopping bill, we can feed a family of five for an entire month Orphans in Need provides food parcels to help widows and orphans affected by poverty. Many widows in the fourteen countries we work in across throughout Asia and Africa, rely on your generosity to feed their families month by month. In 2019 your donations meant we were able to provide over 8.5 million meals to needy widows and orphans, with your help we aim to provide even more this year.
