Our History

The first half of my life, I’ve watched children suffer atrocities such as bombings from the Iran and Iraq war, to famine spanning across the African continent, to today’s natural disasters. Even in our golden age of humanity, millions of children remain poor, impoverished, displaced, and deprived of essential needs in life to develop and thrive. The fundamentals of life that you and I take for granted on a daily basis. It has been a tradition and core principle in my family to "do good work and help as much as you can to save humankind without any expectations”. I was always moved by my parents who were selflessly helping others without any anticipations. They built homes for indigent families, financially supported the couples who wanted to get married and couldn’t afford to, and so much more. I was only 16 years old when I got inspired by my family’s acts of kindness and wanted to be like them to help and attend the needs of fellow human beings. I learned that they never let others know of what they have done and always kept their act of giving undistinguished. During the war of Iran and Iraq, many children lost their parents and were left abandoned. As a young teenager, I was striving to do what I could to make a difference in the lives of those uninhibited young souls. With the sustenance of my parents, I was able to attend the needs of those children that lost their caregivers. My parents always financially supported what I did and promoted my newly grown passion of helping orphan children. Much as I was privileged to travel the world in the company of my father, I had the opportunity to visit many countries across the globe and find orphanages to help and to make a small difference in their lives. Upon migration to the United States, I managed to take on my passion and continue searching for places where I could be of any help. Although there was not much success finding orphanages in California, I started to attend the needs of children in distress and those who were in need of permanent adoptive foster homes, by providing clothes, toys, school and nutritional supplies.

 

In 1992, I arranged my first South American mission in a company of a small team of 3 volunteers to Ecuador where I was able to locate and visit an orphanage and provide food, clothing and hygiene supplies to the children. Upon return from Ecuador, I had decided to formally name the passion that was growing inside me as “Orphans World Wide” . The second mission to South America was in collaboration with a surgical team arranged by Washington Hospital in Bay Area to Bolivia. Though I was not the organizer of that mission trip, I had the privilege to join the team and travel abroad and extend my care to the orphans of Bolivia as well. I joined many humanitarian’s missions so while abroad, I could also find, attend and give to the orphans of that region. Although I received the financial support from my family for the mission trips I was arranging,  I never felt the need to reach out to the community and ask for help for the services I was providing for the forgotten children. The mission trips to South and North America continued with the help of volunteers and the support of my immediate family. In the late 90s, I had extended my care to the Republic of Congo and Sierra Leon Africa with the sole financial support of my siblings. Granted that I had reached out to many children’s lives around the world for over three decades, the organization remained reserved until it was officially recognized as a non for profit in the state of Florida approximately one decade ago. During the three decades of care to humanity, we managed to cultivate and spread our love to children around the globe supporting thousands of orphans by providing food, clothing, bedding, school supplies, nutritional supplies, clean water, medical and surgical care.

 

It is our mission to serve children, those orphaned or destitute from needy families across the globe without any restrictions. We have aimed to be the leading voice for those children who have lost everything.  Orphans World Wide Organization strives to ensure that every child around the world grows up feeling loved and guarded, no matter what their circumstance is. Children with disabilities are no different from their peers without limitations and should feel no barriers. They deserve the lives of equal opportunities as they must be able to play and participate among their peers. We aim to make a change that will improve the lives of orphans who are not capable of supporting themselves. The vision of the organization is to be the largest umbrella that can cover as much orphans around the globe without any boundaries and to be able to identify and attend their unique needs through the psychosocial developmental stage of their lives. We strive to be able to recognize and analyze children’s health conditions and attend to their medical needs, regardless of the nature. We are aiming to be able to provide medical and surgical services to our orphaned children and those of indigent families any time there is a need. We seek out for a world of love, hope and equality where poverty becomes a memory and children live in safety and dignity.
