Orphans were not forgotten in 2020

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation met the various needs of more than 106.000 orphans in the form of monthly support throughout 2020. IHH also hosted orphans in 39 orphanages.

And most of the vulnerable orphans in the world happen to live in the Islamic geography. Human trafficking, child soldier recruitment, child labor, organ trafficking, drug abuse, criminal organizations and child begging networks are just a few of the threats these vulnerable children face.

With the support of donors, IHH strives to care for hundreds of thousands of orphans in many countries around the world. IHH works continuously to support these orphans until they grow up and are capable to care for themselves and meet all their needs ranging from shelter to healthcare, education to food.  Our aim is for these orphans to remain in their homelands, in their own cultural environment close to their relatives, without being dependent on others. IHH is also constructing orphanages for orphans who lost both parents and are unable to live with their relatives, where they can live in a family environment.
