Have you ever considered what happens to an orphan once they reach the age of 18?
OrphanCare was launched in 2019 by Amãna Bank and is established as an independent trust, where OrphanCare aims to address a very important yet mostly unattended need of orphan children; which is securing the fate of orphans once they reach the age of 18 and are compelled to leave institutional care.
"Myself having a strong passion towards supporting and caring for orphans, I am truly inspired by the Bank’s OrphanCare venture which assists orphan children as they move to adulthood, a transition period in which they are very much forgotten and neglected. I look forward to engage with this noble cause and I believe cricket, like it has united 20 million people, will be a great platform to take this message to the general public and internationally."
