WFP’s more recent data indicates that “the rate of child malnutrition is one of the highest in the world and the nutrition situation continues to deteriorate. A recent survey showed that almost one-third of families have gaps in their diets, and hardly ever consume foods like pulses, vegetables, fruit, dairy products or meat” (WFP 2019). In response to this crisis, Pure Hands implements the following famine prevention efforts:
Orphan Sponsorship: Many children don’t only lose one or both of their parents, but they are also forced into early marriage or child labor which leads to missing out on their rights to education. Pure Hands provides these orphans with the necessary financial assistance to enable them to continue their schooling. This program secures support that helps these children’s families (usually a single parent) purchase not only food, but school supplies, clothing, and essential health care services.
Eid Gifts: Pure Hands distributes new clothes and provides cash assistance to orphans during Adha and Fitr Eids.
Psychological Support: Pure Hands also offers psychological support to children who are negatively affected by the ongoing conflict in Yemen alongside their parents
Child Protection Projects.
Millions of children in developing countries lack access to basic necessities, like health care, nutrition, and education. Pure Hands considers children who have lost one or both parents to be orphans. Children are the most vulnerable members of society who need consistent and comprehensive care and support to grow and prosper. In 2018, Pure Hands provided various forms of assistance, such as the Orphan Sponsorship Program, Eid Gift Project, and Clothing Distribution Program. A total of 1,204 orphans benefitted from these interventions, at a total cost of $298,208.
Sponsor a Child and Change a Life.
Orphans Sponsorship is the most effective way to end child poverty. It does not only address a child’s immediate physical needs, it also builds self-esteem. When orphan find out they’ve been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine.
In 2018, Pure Hands paid monthly cash assistance, which covers a child’s educational fees, school uniforms, food and health care, which give sponsored orphans the chance to grow up safe, healthy and educated. More than 901 orphans benefitted in 2018.
Providing Psychological Support for Children.
In 2018, Pure Hands contributed to providing psychological support for children through undertaking psychological support sessions. The project was implemented in various governorates, comprised of entertainment trips and benefitted 143 children.
All families and their children wait for the Eid with anticipation except orphans, who lost one or both parents, because they lost a source of love and support. In 2018, Pure Hands’ Sponsorship Program provided orphans with hope, love, and prospects for the future by providing them with Eid gifts (and/ or cash assistance). A total of 902 orphans benefitted from this project.
Every Donation Saves Lives.
In 2018, Pure Hands contributed to improving food availability to the most vulnerable groups by distributing ready meals for them.
