How does Sirat-ul-Jannah raise support?

Support for our projects is predominantly from voluntary donations. We rely on the support and goodwill of friends and families, Orphanage visitors and volunteers. Their contributions allow us to pay for staff salaries, surgeries, educational costs, equipment, trips out, and the many day-to-day expenses of caring for a large amount of children.

We have no corporate sponsors in the background making it all happen. In short, we are dependent on you.

What can I do to help?

The greatest thing that you can do is make a regular donation – no matter how small – to our charity. This will help to maintain our current work, and allow us to plan ahead. We cannot move on to other, much-needed, projects until we have ensured that there will be enough money each month to sustain the progress already made. A couple of supporters have opted to pay for a staff member’s salary for one year, which is invaluable to us. If you wish to do this, we can put you in touch with the staff member and you may like to enter into correspondence with them. Donors doing this have found it a rewarding experience which reassures them of the direct help that their donation is making.
