Giving The Most Vulnerable Children A Chance To Succeed
Children living in a camp for displaced people in Myanmar’s Rakhine state love learning in their new school, built by Islamic Relief this year. The school, which also serves as an evacuation centre during cyclone season, is giving the community hope that their children may have a better future.
Also this year 400 children living with disabilities in Chechnya in the Russian Federation received free braille or sign language literacy classes – as well as maths lessons, sports and confidence
boosting counselling. In addition we continued to support 370 children at a boarding school in Nangarhar, Afghanistan. As a result 50 orphaned children received accommodation, three meals a day, access to healthcare, clothing, stationery, sports equipment and other items.
In total our education projects in 2019 helped nearly 57,600 children and adults to look forward to brighter futures.
