Godchild and orphan’s program

To support the most vulnerable children (with or without families) living in the camp we started the Godchild and orphan’s program in 2016. Being a sponsor in this program you give children the gift of having secured a meal and/or clothes and shoes.

When you sponsor a child you achieve a special kind of giving that creates a relationship between you and the child and his/her family to secure the child’s caring and needs in the hardship of life in the camp.

The children in the Godchild and orphan’s program are from the poorest families in the camp and the situation for each one of them is assessed and evaluated individually by our professional health clinic team. The amount of money given to each child/family depends on:

  • number of the children in the family
  • absence of one or both parents
  • health of adults and/or the head of family.

E.g. The minimum amount of money per family with 2-3 children and 1-2 adults would be 50 USD. The minimum amount of money in a family with 7-8 children and 1-2 adults, both incapable to work and/or in bad health condition would be 110 USD.

Minimum donation is 25 USD for this program. Two or more people can together sponsor a large family. If you like to sponsor a child, name your donation with “Godchild” and send it through one of our donation payment methods below.
