Boost your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you

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

* I am a UK taxpayer. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on my donations I must pay the difference. Please let us know if your tax status, name or address changes.

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 Lonely Orphans 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.

Coronavirus COVID-19

COVID19 Pandemic Response

The pandemic impacted the whole world. Therefore our support had to be one that was home and away.

The COVID-19 global pandemic is unprecedented and the likes of which the world has never seen before in modern times.

In the time of uncertainties the people who suffer the most are always the vulnerable, though Lonely Orphans focuses its priorities to the orphans and vulnerable around the world.

The pandemic forced us to look closer to home with the support that was needed. COVID-19 affected developed countries like the US and the UK to unanticipated degrees, with enforced strict lockdowns for over a year affecting people’s livelihoods and mental health along with hindrance to their day to day activities. Our organisation decided to actively give back home, locally with domestic projects since the beginning of the pandemic.

While we naturally incorporated COVID-19 deliverables in our ongoing responsibility and duty to our existing projects which continued despite lockdown and office closures in the UK, our base country. We made some commitments in the UK as part of our COVID response:

Last year we supported a coalition of app developers and coders, who developed an app for requests of emergency food packs for those who were isolating or vulnerable during the Lockdown. As well as providing volunteer led delivery drivers, and arranging general logistics for the project. With the high demand and huge success of this campaign we are evaluating and planning to continue the project.

All our projects abroad added features that helped bolster the existing support we provided with the Pandemic in mind. This included our efforts among the Rohingya Refugees included a COVID-19 awareness program as well as posters and leafleting of safety advice which were globally promoted, and our projects in Indonesia, supported our team there with the ongoing ambulance program we run in the region of Jogjyakarta, Indonesia.

We are in the planning stages for some of the issues arising from other impacts from the pandemic and lockdown along with preparation for life after the COVID-19. Our main focus will be to try and focus on the mental well-being of those in the UK who have been affected severely by the lockdown, especially for the elderly and those who are considered lonely. We recognised that these impacts were something that we may be facing, especially in the UK at an unseen level. For this we are looking to support local and community initiatives that provide support like befriending, phone and hotline services for someone to chat to, as well as the aim to support food banks and other subsidies.

Support Lonely Orphans today. Together, we’re saving lives. Together, we’re one family.
