Orphans of Natural Disasters

Protecting children and making sure they are able to go back to school after natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, landslide, flash floods and volcano eruptions has become our main focus. There are many children whom are now orphans due to having lost their parents during these disasters.

In Palu alone, 300,000 children have been affected by the late September 2018 earthquake and tsunami. A huge number of children are left orphaned and the majority of them are suffering from:

  • Extreme shock
  • Trauma
  • Fear of being alone

We have worked together with our overseas partner, PKPU, during the emergency relief and recovery response; providing the children of tsunami victims with psychosocial support. Our field assessments show that a majority of orphans now live with their next of kin, or are fostered by other families whom themselves are very poor. Ongoing support is urgently needed so that they can continue their education.

By donating only £15 a month, you are able to give the orphans an opportunity to fulfil their academic potential and provide them with psychosocial support, opening their path to a brighter future.

Project Locations:

  1. Lombok, NTB province
  2. Palu, Central Sulawesi province

There are currently 43 registered orphans in Palu and 73 in Lombok waiting for your support. They are in need to continue their education as soon as possible. The waiting list continually increases as we are receiving requests from other location of natural disasters.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Human Aid Initiative to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Human Aid Initiative we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Human Aid Initiative to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Human Aid Initiative will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Human Aid Initiative receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
