Orphan Sponsorships


There are 140 million orphans globally and 1 in every 13 children in developing nations is an orphan. Of the 140 million orphans, 61 millions in Asia, 52 million in Africa, 10 million in Latin America and Caribbean, and 7.3 million in Eastern Europe. Most of these children lost both of their parents due to war, natural disaster, corruption, disease, economic disparity and pandemic like HIV/AIDS. Nearly half of the population of the world live on less than $2.5 a day and among them 1.3 billion are living in extreme poverty with less than $1.25 a day. This economic hardship makes the basic necessities such as nutrition, shelter and care for children unaffordable to parents. Apart from poverty, war contributes a major portion of orphan in the world. In the crisis like Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Sudan many children lost their parents and relatives. Houses and public shelters had been the prime target of warring factions.

 

Global Aid has been on the ground in many countries to help the orphans. You can also join us and with as little as £0.82p per day to feed, clothe and educate a young child in the world, who, without your help would be forced to fend for themselves in a world of horrors that no child should has to face.
