Millions of children worldwide have lost their parents due to war, occupation, natural disasters, conflicts, and diseases. Many orphans face threats such as human trafficking, child labor, organ trafficking, drug addiction, criminal networks, and begging networks. The total number of orphans worldwide is estimated to be over 150 million.

In Turkey alone, IHH provided support to 13,219 orphans in 2023.

In other 44 countries, they reached 124,430 orphans, making a total of 137,649 orphans supported regularly each month. Donors can support the food, shelter, healthcare, and education expenses of orphans with a monthly donation of 800 Turkish liras.

IHH aims to support orphans until they become self-sufficient, and therefore, they generate projects and engage in activities in various areas such as housing, healthcare, education, and food.
