There are now more than 150 million orphaned children in the world suffering poverty, hunger or homelessness alone.
At Save an Orphan we specialise in complete orphan care. We operate one-to-one orphan sponsorships throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa that rescue young children orphaned by war, disease, drought or famine.
Each sponsorship lifts an orphan out of poverty, providing a child with a nurturing home, a dedicated foster mother, a balanced diet and a place at a local school where they can thrive as children.
As a registered charity we distribute emergency food packs to widowed families who have lost their main provider, helping impoverished mothers feed, clothe and support their children.
Our aid programmes are designed to deliver long-term sustainable solutions that break the cycle of poverty, providing the basic necessities of life that transform the lives of thousands of families.
We build hand-pump water wells in drought-stricken communities to provide clean, fresh water to drink, wash, cook and grow their own crops for life.
We teach trade skills and organise livelihood programmes that empower families to stand on their own two feet and escape the crippling effects of poverty and malnutrition.
Our work provides an essential lifeline for some of the world’s most neglected children and families. Please explore our main appeals and choose an aid project that means the most to you.
