An orphan village in The Gambia is the Amir Khan Foundation’s flagship project. Consisting of 10 orphan homes, plus a school, clinic and outdoor play area, it will become home to 100 children. Each home will be run by a loving foster mother, and each day the children get nutritious meals, go to school to learn and have chance to play and be kids. Eachorphan also gets clothes and school uniform, and healthcare when they need it. You can be part of this life-changing project and help give orphans a home and a brighter future – donate now. The orphan village is under construction and you can see the latest progress on our news page.
In September 2015 we teamed up with Penny Appeal for a special refugee aid convoy through Europe. Amir and many volunteers went to Athens, the capital of Greece, and the Greek island of Lesbos, to provide things like food, water, clothes, sleeping bags and hygiene to supplies to refugees.
Many of the families we met were from Syria and had fled their homes amid the ongoing violence. They left everything behind and risked their lives for a chance to find a safe home in Europe.
You can continue to support refugees and Save Lives with Amir Khan.
We’re working to help those in need closer to home as well.
Amir Khan and teams from the Foundation and Penny Appeal supported people in Carlisle whose homes and businesses were devastated by the floods of winter 2015. We organised a community day to bring people together in solidarity and give them a chance to relax and regain strength. Amir even put his training to use and helped shift some ruined furniture!
We also support UK projects to help the homeless and vulnerable by providing food and clothing.
Amir Khan Foundation is also working on many other projects that provide sustainable poverty-relief solutions to communities around the world. Clean water, nutritious food, emergency aid and ongoing care and support are just some of the ways we’re helping people in need.
Thanks to You!
We couldn’t do any of this without your generous support, so thank you and please continue to donate.
