Children of Adam is a fully registered charity based in Peterborough, founded by four individuals born and bred in the city. We became fully registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales in August of 2013.
Children of Adam’s first project was facilitating food to the rough sleepers and homeless people of Peterborough. It came as a surprise to us how busy we became with this project and how much of a need there was and sadly still is out there. We have helped in handing out over 60,000 food parcels as well as clothing and bedding to those in need.
Our goals are simple: to continue to work with those most in need both in the local area and around the world by distributing provisions for food, clothing, education and shelter. We continue to provide clean water and sanitation facilities, such as hand pumps and bore holes, in water-deficient and stricken areas.
We are also sponsoring orphans and widows, supporting their physical and spiritual wellbeing, as well as families that have been directly and indirectly affected by conflicts and natural disasters. Children of Adam provides relief and funds used for the reconstruction of homes, shelters, Masjids, Education centres and medical facilities.
One of our core projects is to help those most in need to realise a means of earning a livelihood through Self-Sustaining Projects (SSP). Through SSP, Children of Adam helps orphans, widows and families living in poverty to create and build a business which will empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
Through the kind donations from our supporters, we are able to distribute Lillah, Sadaqah, Zakah, Qurbani and other charitable obligations to the most deserving communities under the guidance of experienced and knowledgeable Scholars.
