Supporting Orphans And Their Families
Islamic Relief’s orphan sponsorship programme ensures all the basic needs of a vulnerable child are met through a monthly donation. In 2019, we secured sponsorship for 9,000 additional children, bringing the total number of sponsored orphans up to 64,000.
At a global meeting of Islamic Relief partners and field offices in November 2019, we discussed future plans for the sponsorship model to ensure the wider community benefits as well as the child and their family. We also piloted a new method of capturing secure data through mobile tablets and a new application that monitors a child’s health, education and housing, improving the efficiency of our monitoring systems.
