All in support of Muslim Hands Street Child projects around the world.
There are estimated to be up to 150 million street children in the world today. In Pakistan alone, there are approximately 1.5 million. Stigmatised as criminals and shunned by their communities, they are the most difficult to reach with vital health, education and welfare services.
With no guardian to protect them and no home to shelter them, street children are left open to all manner of dangers.
The threat of violence, robbery and exposure to drug peddlers is constant and children have experienced abuse and exploitation.
As street children must provide for themselves, they are often exploited by employers who force them to work for long hours in hazardous conditions for very little pay. Perilous jobs like scavenging through rubbish for recyclable materials expose children to diseases, moving machinery and dangerous materials.
With you support, Muslim Hands will continue to provide food, shelter, hygiene kits, job training and drug therapy for street children around the world.
Established in 1993, Muslim Hands is an aid agency and NGO helping those affected by poverty, conflict and natural disaster in over 20 countries worldwide.
