To ease some of that burden on the communities and on guardians of orphaned children, the Central Islamic Organisation of Guyana (CIOG) has been operating the Orphan and Vulnerable Children Support initiative since the past 19 years where orphans receive a monthly stipend, transportation allowance, school fees, vitamins, food hampers and back to school packages.
IDRF is pleased to be working with CIOG to give a better living to orphaned kids in Guyana. On their recent visit, IDRF staff and Chair of the board visited the CIOG run schools for orphans and were delighted to see the progress of the children, and that CIOG helps all poor kids, irrespective of race, faith or abilities.
Note: At IDRF we are committed to managing your funds and being accountable to you as our donors with full transparency. To do this, we are committed to ensuring that the funds you have selected are designated to the appropriate country. In the event IDRF receives funds that cannot be designated to the country selected, then please know that the funds will be redirected to support other vulnerable communities that are in urgent need.
