One of the most pressing issues facing Pakistan is the increasing number of underprivileged orphans, which currently totals to 4.6 million children according to the United Nations. These innocent children are not only suffering from water scarcity, but lack of adequate clothing, food, and toys for childhood development. Paani’s orphan relief hopes to provide a higher quality living standard for these children through various sponsorship programs. Whether you would like to participate in the annual Eid Gifts for Orphans program, fund an individual orphan, or care for the entire orphanage, Paani will give you the opportunity to provide for the orphans who will one day become the future of Pakistan.

FACTS & FIGURES
Unfortunately, there is no national policy nor protective legislation in Pakistan for the protection of orphans. At the provincial level dating back to the 1970s the focus is on administrative, rather than human needs. Consequently, issues such as healthcare, education and state patronage hardly get any attention.
Our Eid Fundraiser for Orphans
Through the complex intersection of corruption and poverty, oftentimes the most disenfranchised become our children. There are institutions that already exist to provide schooling, but not many that aim to provide a normal childhood. Every Eid, we donate hundreds of new clothes and toys to children at orphanages in Pakistan. The purpose of new clothes during Eid is to provide a sense of dignity for these children, especially during the days that they hold so highly. Many of these children have been robbed of their childhood and our hope is that the toys -although nowhere near a permanent solution for the grief that they have faced- can be a means to keep some parts of their childhood alive.
