Of the many vulnerable members of society, orphans are amongst the most helpless. This is particularly the case in Pakistan, kashmir and Afghanistan where there is little social support and social services are inadequate.
Poverty, and the desperation it brings, means that many orphaned children, with a mother and siblings to support, undertake hard labour to survive.
Apart from the full-time care afforded to over 600 orphans at the academy in Nowshera, Ummah Welfare Trust supports almost 1,970 orphans across Pakistan, kashmir and Afghanistan with monthly cash allowances.
Cash grants mitigate the pressures of labour, allowing children to focus on education and staying with their families. Grants are vital if families are to be compensated for their children being removed from work and sent to school. The sponsorship money covers food, education, clothing, and medical care of the child.
Provide an orphan with hope and sponsor one today from just £25 a month.
Under Ummah Welfare Trust (Pak) initiated Orphans Sponsorship project for the year 2017-18, 1,970 unprivileged and disadvantaged orphans of Afghanistan (500), Kashmir (124) and Pakistan (1,346) been supported to easily complete their education having no concerns regarding their educational expenses as the registered orphans received a monthly stipend of £25 as educational support.
Over the years, the project allowed the families of the sponsored orphans to apportion greater spending for their children’s schooling for improving their academic performance and allowing them to unlock their full potential for eliminating their financially vulnerabilities in the future.
500 more most-needy and deserving orphans will be registered during the upcoming project period from different regions of Afghanistan rising the number from 500 to 1,000, (Insha’Allah) which will increase the overall No’s from 1,970 to 2470.
