When a family loses the first line of support the father or in worst cases both parents, not only does the child have to cope with the tragedy of losing someone very dear, but also the loss of a regular source of income, which provided them the basic requirments in life.
Orphans are amongst the most vulnerable in society as they do not have the same opportunities as other children. They are often forced into child labour in order to survive and miss out on a normal childhood.
Given the opportunity of going back to school, these orphans could develop practical skills, which would enable thier communities to break out of the cycle of poverty.
By sponsoring a child for only 1 a day, you will be providing him or her with the basics that every child deserves - food, health care and education.
Our Child Protection Policy:
- The location and family name of a child will be withheld until the donor has been identified. Human Care Syria will not publish or make public the address, telephone number or e-mail contact of any of the children or their families.
- Sponsorship is based on the agreement that donors will not attempt to contact the orphan or their family by any means without the specific permission of Human Care Syria.
- The donor and orphan are free to exchange correspondence via Human Care Syria's Fundraising and Field offices, however all postal material must conform to our policy.
- The donor may visit the orphan, at their own expense, provided written permission is obtained in advance. Human Care Syria may carry out police background checks before permitting such visits. The visit will be supervised at all times by the Orphans Welfare Officer within that country.
- Unfortunately, Human Care Syria cannot allow unannounced visits to the sponsored orphan. For obvious safety reasons, sponsored children cannot be brought to the donor's country for visits.
- Photographs and other data posted on the website are for the purpose of supplying potential sponsors with relevant information about the orphan's welfare programme. The information and photographs may not be downloaded, copied or replicated without the express permission of Human Care Syria.
- Human Care Syria aims to secure sponsorship for orphans to provide them with a better future to enable them to be able to support themselves and their communities.
- Human Care Syria is fully committed to protecting the security, privacy and dignity of its orphans and their families. The Child Rights and Protection procedures detailed in this section are in place to ensure the safety and welfare of children, and to offer them protection from exploitation or abuse.
