IHH knows no limits in helping children orphaned by wars, natural disasters or poverty. Carrying out orphan relief work on a large geography from Haiti to Indonesia-Aceh, IHH included all the children who were orphaned by an earthquake in the eastern province of Van last year in its Sponsor Family System. The foundation has eight orphanages in different regions of the world while construction of two orphanages in Pattani and five orphanages in Somalia and Malawi still continues. IHH aims to ensure that orphans grow up under normal living circumstances as other children at the same age with them do. Bu supporting the families of the orphans, IHH also aims to ensure that orphans grow up near their own families. One hundred children around the world are deprived of the warmth of a family and face many threats and dangers. While the IHH today supports more than 23,000 orphans, it aims to reunite thousands of other orphans with charity givers. IHH has taken action for all the orphans across the world with its “Make Room for Orphans in Your World,” campaign.

While it takes emergency relief to disaster-stricken people, IHH has also been doing its best since 1992 to reach orphans and meet their needs quicker than human smugglers, organ mafia and missionary institutions. It makes efforts to ensure that orphans’ fundamental rights and liberties are not violated and they grow up within their own culture.

As of today, IHH has reached 23,401 orphans across 36 countries and regions in the world. The foundation also provides periodical support to orphans in dozens of other countries and regions and meets their expenses for education, healthcare, clothing, food and other.

When they visit a region in different times of the year, IHH teams pay special attention to orphans. A total of 23,401 orphans who are cared by charity givers look to the future with hope. With its, “Make Room for Orphans in Your World,” campaign, IHH aims to include at least 5,000 more orphans to its Sponsor Family Project. Hundreds of thousands of children across the world still wait for the support of the benevolent people. Charity givers who would to become the sponsor family of an orphan in Turkey or anywhere in the world can join the Sponsor Family System by making a monthly donation of €35 or 50 USD.
