It’s tough enough being an orphan or growing up in an impoverished household. Right from the get-go, such children find themselves at a disadvantage in life through no fault of their own. For that very reason, Embrace Relief already supports orphanages in Tanzania so children who have lost both their homes and parents have shelter, food, hygienic products, and an education on a daily basis.
But that’s not all orphans and underprivileged children need to get a foothold on life. Health insurance is of utmost importance to protect against any unexpected, highly expensive medical services and costs due to serious accidents or illnesses. It also significantly reduces child mortality. Unfortunately, however, underprivileged children’s families can’t afford this necessity, which costs $25USD per year per child. Therefore, Embrace Relief has partnered with ISHIK Medical and Education Foundation to help provide healthcare to 3,000 children in both orphanages and poor households in Tanzania, Africa. Embrace Relief’s specific goal is to fund 180 children in Kigamboni Amani Orphanage, Alzam Orphanage, and Hiari Orphanage (60 children per orphanage).
