Help Yateem Story
Our humble Story
Inspired by one person Years ago, when several of the founding members of Help Yateem visited some very poor countries, they were truly shocked by the orphans’ living conditions. The heartbreaking scenes they witnessed involved vulnerable orphans falling into despair.
Children as young as six who have no hope for a future turn to drugs, sniffing glue as a means of forgetting, even if temporarily, the horror that is their life.
Others are exposed to violence, forced to carry lethal weapons and are groomed into becoming child soldiers. The ‘lucky ones’ are those who are looked after by their relatives yet they still suffer extreme poverty.
Our team was inspired by one individual who gave his life helping to empower orphans by setting up schools, providing these fragile young children with education, clean water, food, clothing and the basic human love they craved. We were amazed to see how their lives were transformed all due to one man who dedicated his life to making a difference. We were so inspired by his actions, a small team of friends united and banded together to help orphans in need. Soon, more volunteers joined our campaign and we were humbled to see how many people responded to such a rewarding cause!
Help Yateem works exceptionally hard to cater to orphans
It is common for orphans to feel neglected and as a result be engulfed with anger. Our priority is to redirect that negative energy to something positive and beneficial: Education.
“Education is the movement from darkness to light.” -Allan Bloom
As an international organisation, Help Yateem’s goal and purpose is to help everyone. We strongly believe that our human survival is dependent on helping one another – that is how the world becomes a better place for all.
