Sponsor an Orphan in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sudan, Gambia or Gaza.
There are over 243 million orphans worldwide and close to half of these don’t even have a home.
OrphanKind, Penny Appeal’s orphan sponsorship programme, helps to address the positive changes that are needed in orphans’ lives to enable them to thrive, develop and ultimately break free from poverty.
We provide nutritious meals, clothing and a high standard of education, which is combined with comprehensive medical care. We also make sure that every orphan child has a loving home and dedicated foster mother.
We opened our first orphanage Mera Apna Ghar (My Own Home) in Sohawa, Pakistan in January 2012. Since then, we’ve built another orphanage and supported homes in Africa, and have taken on thousands of orphan sponsorships across the world which urgently need your support.
Areeba Bi is 5 years old. In 2009 her father who was a labourer died from kidney failure leaving Areeba’s Mother without any income to pay for food, shelter or education. In April 2012, Areeba was able to find a new home at Penny Appeal’s Mera Apna Ghar (My Own Home) orphanage in Sohawa. Areeba now attends school and is cared for by one of the foster mothers at the orphanage.
Areeba says she enjoys playing with her dolls and watching cartoons. She recently scored 95% overall in her exams.
Areeba’s foster mother says that Areeba is always smiling and is a good-natured child who likes to succeed at everything.
Areeba says when she grows up she would like to be a doctor.
