Can I sponsor an individual orphan through IDRF?

IDRF does not “sponsor” individual orphans in the traditional sense, for a variety of ethical reasons.

However, we do have a special focus on orphans and the neediest and neglected children in countries such as India, Pakistan, Guyana, Gaza and Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Your donations will greatly help IDRF conduct our work as, through our partners, we carry out special education, mental and physical health projects that support and provide food, clothes, books and stationary to some of the most disadvantaged people. These crucial tools will help improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children to ensure that their future is brighter.
