The numbers & desperation of orphans are rising. $50 a month can meet their basic needs & those of children of single mother-headed households in the poorest Khartoum squatter settlement.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Poverty & economic hardship are increasing in New Dar El-Salaam El-Rabwa, a squatter settlement north of the capital city. It is the single area most in need with over 20,000 displaced people, 52% of them children. 54 orphans and children from single mother-headed households urgently require sponsors to have their basic needs met: health, nutrition, education, clothing, and guidance.
How will this project solve this problem?
Short- & long-term care for school attendance and basic health services for children; nutrition awareness for mothers and their medical care; clothing, special education, and assistance for culturally important feast celebrations.
Potential Long Term Impact
A safety net and boost to desperate families often driven to extreme measures otherwise. A life-line for children likely doomed to be outcasts in their society, illiterate, unnurtured and missing the most elemental necessities for development.
