Orphan Sponsorship Programme
Aiming to sponsor as many orphans as possible by encouraging participation in a collective and sociable activity and emphasising teamwork, resilience and a lot of laughter along the way.
In 2022 United Relief with a team of 22 volunteers raised £6,000 to sponsor 13 orphans in Iraq and Yemen along with a 5km Tough Mudder fundraiser event. This year we hope to do even better as we take on the 7/12km Nuclear Obstacle course consisting of 70+ obstacles. Once we have covered the sponsorship of 13 orphans, the remaining amount will go towards sponsoring children in Turkey and Syria which have tragically been left orphaned as a result of the devastating Earthquake in February this year.
At least 82.4 million people around the world have been forced to flee their homes. Among them 26.4 million refugees, around half of whom are under the age of 18. Join the United Relief team in working directly with Refugees across Europe to make an impactful difference to their lives. Working within the refugee camps will give you an eye-opening experience of the people involved in the crisis and give you the opportunity to directly help those in need. Most recently visited Calais in March and November 2022 and now the next trip is planned for March 2023 which is already fully booked! If you would like to join us on a future trip, please register your interest via our volunteering form.
Founded in the summer of 2018 with the aim of aiding other charities and individuals in their causes, United Relief has since set up events and campaigns on a regular basis to fulfil its original aim. Keeping up to date with the latest crises around the world, members of the charity take part in sponsored challenges as a way of raising funds for specific causes rapidly. Other than raising funds for current crises, our prime objective in the long run is to target all of our fundraising to those whom are displaced, homeless, seeking asylum/refuge and orphans worldwide. With the hope to continue establishing ourselves at a national and international level, we’re aiming to gather more teams together to hold further challenges across the rest of the year. We hope you can join in with us in our mission to make fundraising fun again!
