A destitute child searches for food and anything of value at a tip



Here at Save An Orphan, we are committed to transforming the lives of orphaned children. We are leading the way in providing specialist and complete orphan care and recognise our responsibility towards vulnerable children, widows, and their communities. We are constantly working on helping to alleviate poverty and build brighter futures.

We are based in the UK but we operate extensively on a global scale. We reach out to orphans in impoverished places across the world, including Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Working on the principle of sustainability, we save orphans, widows and their children and we do so without compromising their future independence. In fact, a large amount of our work focuses on creating practical livelihood programmes in farming, sewing and livestock so the families of orphans can maintain a regular income and rebuild a healthy and stable life. Our work makes sure that orphan lives are not only saved, but revitalised, to keep them contented and free from poverty for the rest of their lives.

Your donation is fundamental to our work, and we want to demonstrate just how much we appreciate your help by making sure your donation goes towards credible, remarkable care solutions.

The prophet (saw) was reported to have said:

"The one who cares for an orphan and myself
will be together in Paradise like this", and he
held two fingers together.
