Help Orphans Now is a not-for-profit organization, run by volunteers, established to assist disadvantaged and orphaned children in Sri Lanka to reach their full potential, irrespective of the child's race or religion. Help Orphans Now aims to:
provide for the children's physical, educational and emotional needs,
protect them in a secure, caring environment, and
empower them to become valuable members of their communities and country.
Help Orphans Now was formally established in 2005, though our involvement with disadvantaged and orphaned children in Sri Lanka began in 1994 with the Christmas Gift Project. We have since facilitated the establishment of several children's homes in response to the needs of children in crisis following the Boxing Day 2004 tsunami.
Our success is thanks to the generous support of our corporate sponsors, individual donors and volunteers. We are also grateful to all those who have attended and supported our fundraising events over the years.
We welcome you to browse our website and get involved.
Even the smallest difference made is a difference worth making!
Many thanks to all those who attended our Gala Dinner on 20 November 2022 and to all those who made donations in lieu of being able to attend. The evening was a great success thanks to your generosity. We hope you enjoyed yourselves!
