Orphans’ Project Continuous
ICRD is in continuous engagement with the war-affected communities in Yemen to offer support. One of our primary target groups are orphans. Orphaned children below the age of 13 years are eligible for our sponsorship program. We provide food and other learning materials and equipment to keep the kids in school. At this age, the kids are vulnerable and it is difficult to fend for themselves.
On 22nd October 2020, Engineer Abdo Al-Zamzami, director of the orphan sponsorship program at the International Council for Relief and Development distributed the food basket and the school bag in several directorates of Sana’a Governorate and the Capital Secretariat for orphans under the age of 13. Al-Zamzami was alongside volunteer staff, as well as members of the council team, Dr. Ahmed Al-Sabari, Vice President in Yemen, and Dr. Saleh Al-Suhaqi, a member of the Board of Trustees. The children who benefitted are eligible for annual subsidy and sponsorship.
The event was held in conjunction with the inauguration of the new school year. Thanks to the council staff and the white hands of the donors in the United States of America from the community and other philanthropists for providing support to this segment of society. Were it not for this support, most of these children would not access basic necessities like food and education.
Be a Shoulder a Child Can Lean On
The launch of International Council for Relief and Development (ICRD) Orphan Program was the first step in a journey of a thousand miles. The train has left the station and we are calling upon more donors to join us in this course.
You can be a partaker of the reward that comes with taking care of the vulnerable. Become one of our donors and we can make a bigger impact.
Children who used to enjoy the warm embrace of fathers and mothers are now languishing in poverty. You can be the source of their next meal, clothing, or medical supply. Take a step and together we will increase the number of sponsored children under our program in Yemen.
