Sponsor an Orphan Today

Give vulnerable orphans the love and care they need to thrive

There are 140 million orphans across the world. These children have experienced more heartbreak in their short lives than most of us could ever imagine – and for millions of children in developing countries, losing one or both parents almost always leads to a life of poverty and abuse. 

You can sponsor a child for just 50p a day could provide them with nutritious meals, clothes, essential healthcare and education.

With your support, we can make sure that orphans and vulnerable children get all the opportunities you'd want for your own children. 

Penny Appeal has received over 55,000 orphan sponsorships – thank you!

Build an Orphan Home

Help build a new orphan home and you'll provide a safe, loving home for countless orphans for years to come.


We don’t like to use the word orphanage. Orphanages conjure up Victorian workhouses serving gruel for dinner… our orphan homes are nothing like that. 

They are real homes, with foster mothers, nutritious meals, new clothes, healthcare and access to the best education in the area. Help us build a new orphan home in Gambia and you'll provide a safe, loving home for countless orphans in need for years to come.

Muslim Orphans

Sponsoring an Orphan in Islam

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 his two fingers together to illustrate.

The Qur’an couldn’t be clearer about our responsibility as Muslims to show compassion and care for orphans; orphan charity is one of the most blessed ways to honour Allah and give vulnerable children all the opportunities and love they deserve.

The Legacy of OrphanKind


There are 140 million orphans around the world. Many of these children have no one. 

Any child is vulnerable; but none more so than a child without the protection of parents or guardians.

Many orphans fall prey to petty crime, child labour or human trafficking.

The legacy of being orphaned can be poverty, crime and extreme trauma. 

But the legacy of being OrphanKind? 

That’s a legacy of a child overcoming the odds, being loved and cared for and building a better future for themselves and their communities. 

When you sponsor an orphan with OrphanKind, you will change a child’s life forever, and gain Sadaqah Jariyah – ongoing rewards – throughout your life and in the Hereafter. 

It's a beautiful gift to care for a child, so please sponsor an orphan today! 

OrphanKind helps orphans all around the world
