When Umm Hassan's son died in a tragic accident, the grief was all-encompassing. Little did she know that he would bring her glad tidings in a dream.
Umm Hassan is just one of many widows who need your help to raise their children out of a world of poverty and uncertainty. Her story shows that when a child is orphaned, everyone, from their family right through to their community, is affected.
As well as giving access to an education, food and medical check-ups, our sponsorship scheme provides orphan families with a dedicated orphan care worker who provides much needed mental, emotional and practical support not only to the orphans themselves, but to other family members affected by the loss of a parent and spouse.
