The Fishermen International Aid and Relief Organization for Orphans

Posted by worldorphanrelief on June 9, 2008

Who Are We?

The Fishermen is a non-denominational, non-political, and non-profit international aid and relief organization based in Raleigh, North Carolina. We exist to educate and provide health care to orphaned children around the world. The Fisherman’s activities are focused in Central Asia at present, but we aim to expand our international scope. Though we are not limited in any way, we emphasize caring for orphaned children with special needs. Among the services we provide are:

  • Distribution of medical supplies to orphaned children, orphanages, and refugee camp services pertaining to orphaned children
  • Offering basic medical services to orphaned children, orphanages, and refugee camp services related to orphans
  • Teaching orphaned children, orphanage administrators, and refugee camp services pertaining to orphaned children how to use the medical supplies we provide
  • Teaching orphaned children, orphanage administrators, and refugee camp services pertaining to orphaned children basic first-aid skills
  • Providing career guidance in an online forum allowing orphaned children to communicate with professionals in the United States and elsewhere

Our Goals are to:

  • Teach orphaned children how to take care of themselves
  • Assist as many orphaned children as possible both educationally and medically
  • Conduct at least 4 mission trips per year
  • Make a positive difference in the lives of others

It is also our goal to make it easy for caring individuals to make a big difference in the lives of these children. We provide several ways to volunteer and are open to suggestions about how we can expand our mission to better help those under our care.

Our Mission

Every life matters. We all know that the children of the world embody our greatest natural resource and our hope for a better future. Orphans are no different and often have the strongest hearts and greatest drive. These children deserve the opportunity to have a good life, and they deserve the chance to realize their potential.

Sadly, most orphanages are under-funded. They have good intentions but are unable to provide basic health care and are ill-equipped to educate their children properly. Since it is common practice for orphanages to evict a child once they reach the age of 18, many are forced to turn to crime or prostitution just to exist.

It is our mission to give the orphans of the world the chance they deserve not only to survive but also to be happy, one child at a time if necessary. We want these children to believe in their future and that they, too, can make the world a better place.

Current Activities

The Fishermen was established as a non-denominational, non-political, and non-profit organization to provide medical and educational aid to orphaned children around the world. Our services in Kyrgyzstan, the US, and elsewhere are helping numerous children have a chance at not only a healthier, but also a happier life with better expectations for a prosperous future.

In most of the countries wherein we plan to operate, medical services are few and ambulance response is practically non-existent. Orphanages have little to no money to pay for medical care and are quite often without transport. Imagine taking a child with a compound fracture of the leg on a bus to the nearest hospital, which in many cases may be many miles away! By delivering medical supplies and medical knowledge to orphanages, we are improving the potential for these children to have healthier lives and, in some cases, save their lives altogether.

Project Kyrgyzstan 2007/08

As with all Central Asian countries of the CIS, Kyrgyzstan has growing problems with institutionalized children, including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and education. Government expenditures on education, health, and social protection are low. Poverty is a country-wide issue, giving rise to an increasing number of children living on the street.

We chose Kyrgyzstan as the starting point for our overseas operations for several reasons. First, Kyrgyzstan is the most stable country in the Central Asian portion of the CIS. The government is reasonably secure and functions in the best interest of the people. Second, there are fewer NGOs operating in Kyrgyzstan than in the rest of Central Asia. Orphans in that country have little to no outside help. Third, it is our goal to establish an office in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. With such an office it would be far less expensive to serve the rest of Central Asia, rather than making constant trips to the region. Discussions have already begun with the Kyrgyz government to establish our permanent presence in their country.

Our primary area of activity in Kyrgyzstan is Bishkek. There are a number of orphanages outside Bishkek which will also receive our services, covering all 7 regions of Kyrgyzstan:

  • Batken (Bishkek)
  • Chuy
  • Issyk-kul
  • Jalal-Abad
  • Naryn
  • Osh
  • Talas

Additionally, there are a number of refugee camps within Kyrgyzstan consisting of asylum seekers from Afghanistan and Russia (Chechens), as well as ethnic Kyrgyz from Tajikistan and the remaining Uzbeks from Andijan, all of whom are seeking residence status. All camps have children in need.

Our goal for 2007 and early 2008 is to conduct a preliminary mission to Kyrgyzstan and accomplish the following:

  • Delivery of medical supplies to orphanages with which we have existing relations
  • Visit 6 new orphanages and at least 1 refugee camp to assess their needs
  • Meet with Kyrgyz officials with whom we are currently in contact to further relations with their government
  • Meet with UN personnel within Kyrgyzstan with whom we wish to establish a cooperative relationship
  • Meet with other NGOs active within Kyrgyzstan with whom we wish to establish a cooperative relationship

In order to accomplish the above goals we have begun to collect the funding and medical supplies necessary to ensure a successful trip. Please examine our list of financial needs to see how you can help. Our goal is to raise 11,180 USD by December in order to make our first mission trip and deliver medical donations to Kyrgyz orphanages.

History of Project Kyrgyzstan

In August of 2005, Alex traveled to Kyrgyzstan to visit numerous orphanages in and outside the city of Bishkek. After inspecting the living conditions of each orphanage and determining their needs, he made a promise to return to the children he met and do everything possible to make their lives better.

As of July, 2007, Alex and Sarah met with Kyrgyz diplomats to discuss how they could help the orphans of Kyrgyzstan. It was agreed that the Fishermen should submit a formal, translated proposal to work within Kyrgyzstan to provide medical relief and education to the orphaned children of their country.

As of August, 2007, our proposal was accepted by Kyrgyz officials and we began a massive program to collect medical supplies for distribution throughout Kyrgyzstan.

United Nations

In addition to our diplomatic activity we are also communicating with the United Nations to work with key departments engaged in similar actions world-wide. Although we are currently involved in Kyrgyzstan, we have every intention to immediately expand our services to include other nations of central Asia, including Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and possibly Afghanistan. Discussions with NGOs and UN agencies in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan have already begun. As long as funding is available we will continue to expand our services as far and wide as possible.

Working in coordination with the IOM (International Organization for Migration) as well as UN agencies, departments, and programs such as UNAIDS, UNICEF, UNIFEM, UNHCR, UNODC, and the WHO, we hope to provide orphanages and orphaned children in refugee camps with vital medical supplies and other support to better their lives. In conjunction with our future projects, we believe our efforts will make a true difference in the health and happiness of children around the world.

Domestic Operations

Domestically, we have a program called The Forum. The Forum is a non-denominational, non-political internet message board intended to inspire orphaned children to become successful adults. Offering up their experience and education, volunteers use email to establish a rapport with children who contact us asking for ideas and advice regarding potential careers. Please examine our list of professions for which volunteers have agreed to consult. If you wish to assist please contact us and we will provide you with the information you need to access The Forum and begin guiding orphaned children from around the world on a career path that will help them find a brighter future.

How Can You Help?

Collectively, Alex and Sarah have provided 16 years of assistance to men, women, and children around the world with little to no outside support. However, to make a true difference in the lives of others we need your help. Please examine the opportunities below to assist us in making our work as effective as possible:

  • Funding: We need financial donations to purchase supplies for orphanages and refugee camp services related to orphans, as well as to fund missions.
  • Medical Supplies: One of our primary functions is to provide medical supplies to orphanages and refugee camp services related to orphaned children. We need as much support as possible to fulfill their needs. Please examine our list of preferred items and send what you are able.
  • Volunteers: Volunteer your time to help us raise funds and acquire medical supplies. When our activities expand we will also need volunteers to assist us with domestic and overseas projects.

Transportation in Country






Medical Supplies


Various Expenses





We need your assistance to provide orphanages and refugee camp services related to orphans with the medical supplies they need. Whether it is one item or an entire container, anything you donate will help.

Most of what we need can be found at your local grocery store or pharmacy. As we collect these items, we will either ship them to orphanages and refugee camps with which we have a rapport or will schedule a mission trip to distribute the material directly to ensure their safe arrival. We will also educate both administrators and children about their proper use.

Please examine our medical supply list. All material donations will be used to supply orphanages and refugee camp services related to orphans. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


Financial donations are gladly accepted. Alex and Sarah fund all of The Fishermen’s activities, but financial support will help expand current missions and provide the needed assistance to begin new projects. All donations will be used solely for the purpose of purchasing supplies for orphanages and refugee camp services related to orphans as well as to fund our missions.

We have policies in place to ensure that any financial gift will be used properly. None of The Fishermen’s officers or directors are paid a salary and administrative costs are kept to a bare minimum. Both our bylaws and Conflict of Interest policy are available for your inspection. Although our 501(c)(3) status is pending, a copy of our filed application may also be viewed. Beginning January 1, 2009, a copy of our Form 990 will be available to the public.

  2. Hello Sir/Mam

    Greetings to you from Sylom Ministries (Regd), Andhra Pradesh/Kakinada, in the name of Our Lord and savior JESUS CHRIST. It is a Great privilege to meet you in this way. Let me introduce my self first. I am Rev.S.Praveen Chakravarthy am working as a Gospel & Social worker at South India/Andhra Pradesh/Kakinada. I was born and brought up in a Christian family. My parents had dedicated me to GOD’S service in my Childhood. God had catched me and guided me from my childhood. By his grace and the knowledge which he had given to me by that I had completed my master’s degree in administration and master’s degree in theology, Now he is using me more for his work among the Idolism people, untouchable people, Leprosy People, tribal people, Harijan People, HIV/Aids Infected People, Low caste and high Caste People, T.B. people, Prostitutes, youth, girijans, untouchable & ,unwanted people among the rural and women groups and for the community development of the society, prisoners, child labour, etc…

    Coming to the point:

    At Present we are working with 189 orphan children , 69 widows ,178 pastors & 76 Prostitute women,where they are now learning tailoring programme so that they can earn for their living without going back to their past life.

    By the Grace of God we had helped many poor and needy people By providing education and helping them and feeding them and by the medical camps conducted almost all over the Rural Areas in Our District and also provided 56 free bore wells to the poor and needy in all the rural areas where people are happy to drink fresh water naerly 30,000 people are benifited with these borewells.We had also encouraged some people and made them to work for Christ.At present we are working with the prostitution women and the other women where we are teaching the tailoring programmes .

    If you know any one in india especially in south india/Andhra Pradesh/East Godavari District you can ask them about the village called peddapuram where we work.Here this village is famous for the prostitution for selling the grown up girls to the prostitutes areas like Mumbai and Calcutta. Here the women sells their children for their living,if not they will send their groen up girls into prostitution .so we are working among them and we would like to you to come and see the situation and do what you can to these women and grown up girls.

    If you want any details regarding this you can contact the women who had came from scotland and her name is Jennifer Gallagher,social and justice peace convenor,who had visited our place personally and seen the works of ours and cried a lot by seeing the women and buyed three kids where the families are selling their children.Right now the three kids are studying and they are with us,for all the details of ours you can contact her , or , and her address is
    city:Greenock state:Scotland zip/postal code:PA15 4DX country:United Kingdom

    Now i am not writting this letter for any money help.i need your prayers for them and if possible i need some food to feed the children and some sewing machines for these prostitute women who are learnig tailoring programme so that they can earn on that and feed their family without going back to the past life.

    you can see our works at
    you can also see our works at (which is underconstruction)

    One more is i request you or your representatives to come forward and see our work and help us to serve more poor and needy people along with the orphan children,widows and the Prostitute women and for the Pastors who are working for the Kingdom even though they are facing lot of persecutions among the idolic people.

    May the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and the people you are working with?

    I am RevFarrakhNaveed, Faisalabad, Pakistan. I have been indulged in the community work to serve the people of God. I have also been busy in developing the website of the community that we faculty members have established together. Its name is UNITED PRESBYTERIAN FAITH COMMUNITY. At present we are working on these objectives.

    FOUNDER; – Rev. Farrakh Naveed United Presbyterian Church Of Faisalabad


    1- Bible Education

    2- Sunday School

    3- Youth (UPFC)

    4- Widows Help (UPFC)

    5- Sewing Center

    6- Shelter Orphan Children

    7- Women Prayer Community


    1- School &Education Fund

    2-Shelter Orphan Fund

    3-Widows Fund

    4-Church Fund

    1- Bible Education 2-Sunday School

    For Sunday school Community gives to the children the basic Christian teaching, including the bible quiz and the material useful for the children.

    For EDUCATION there are some 150 & above of them poor children who are getting education through the help of God these children cannot afford for their education.

    Community provides them, books uniform school fee and stationary, used for their academic year. OUR APPEAL Ask and you will be given. Search and you will find Knock and it will be opened for you. This appeal is being made on behalf of the deserving, poor and needy children from the UNITED PRESBYTERIAN FAITH COMMUNITY Faisalabad – Pakistan. Life in Pakistan is not so easy especially for the poor who do not enjoy the facilities of life. It is more difficult for the Christians who are in minority and taken as the second-class citizens. This discrimination does not help the Christians to flourish themselves. Education is the only way to make children walk on the right path and guide them towards the bright future.

    Education can eliminate the poverty. Therefore COMMUNITY of the Little Children has mainly focused the children to provide them the chances of getting education that they may establish their families later on. As I told you I am a pastor and iam preaching as well as iam working fro children and deserving women .I have more than 45 children under supervision of my UNITED PRESBYTERIAN FAITH COMMUNITY now they are in creasing day by day and the place where they are residing is becoming small and our Community needs now place where they can easily reside .we are providing them all that facilities within our limited sources .we have to pay the rent of house where the student are imported Biblical education. Moreover,

    Sewing Center

    Many Christian young girls along with their mothers go to the houses of the Muslims and workday long but get a little reward. Seeing all this I have started free sewing center for them. I want your financial help in this regard and I can give you details of this project. I serve in Children and also I have Free sewing Center where Ladies and girls learning Free Sewing Training. I have Sunday school Centers in different areas. But I face difficulties because I am self-support’s want Your Patronage for lord work.

  11. Hi there!

    I’m new to this forum and just wanted to say hi. So Hi!


  12. Dear Friend,
    This is an effort to introduce you to our service to the neglected and rejected orphan girls.
    Our orphan home is located in Youhanabad, Lahore, and Province of Punjab, Pakistan. So far we cater to 25 orphan girls of the age group of 4-12 years. Our N.G.O is called “Orphan Care Organization” and this orphanage is called Abba Home. We believe that an orphan also needs love and care. I have dedicated myself to this ministry and I hope this will grow by leaps and bounds in the near future.
    We live in a rented house. That too adds to the burden of the expense. May be one day we could own a home for our orphan girls. We began this ministry in year 2005.Over the years our services have improved and the number also has remarkable increased. We try to provide to these orphans, the care that an average parent can give.
    We can provide more and more services with your kind help and donations in whatever way you can.
    May be you could introduce us to charitable organizations and benefactors so that this ministry could continue. Thanks,

    Yours truly,

    Allow me to introduce to you our organization called Children In
    Need(CIN) is a community based Christian organization in Torit eastern
    Equatorial South Sudan and its where the war begun from.CIN realized
    the benefits of unity and believing that our problems in Torit can
    best be solved by getting together accepting that the lives of orphans
    and vulnerable children can be better solved by our social interaction
    within and outside the torit community. Aware that they can play
    greater role in the future development of our mother country Sudan.CIN
    realized that the majority of vulnerable children and orphans have no
    access to education and health due to poverty and the majority end up
    staying at home since most of them are orphans whose parents died in a
    WAR and poor living and their guardians can not educate them. the
    majority of the children lack EDUCATION,CLOTHING, BEDDINGS,FOOD,POOR
    HEALTH AND NUTRITION in the torit community. Atleast when we get like
    one sponsor per child who can donate like 50usd per month,that can
    change a life because 50usd can take a child to school,buy him/her
    cloths and take that child to the hospital incase that child falls
    sick wich is the most disturbing stuation here.We’re taking care of
    200 children at the moment and help 20 other disabled families by
    providing them with medical and other service simple service and we
    are willing to increase the number when we get help from
    donors/sponsors.Many of the vulnerable children and orphans who
    dropout of school are idle without any productive activity that can
    engage them into productive life. For years rural vulnerable children
    are left behind in the development and yet they play greater role in
    shaping the attitudes and development in their communities. It was
    also intended to divert the energies of children from non productive
    to productive actions. We are focusing on helping the vulnerable
    children and orphans transform themselves and develop them morally,
    intellectually and economically. PROJECT MISSION:To transform the
    lives of the vulnerable children and orphans who live with AIDS and
    whose parents died of WAR in Torit sub region through education and
    health.PROJECT VISION:To rebuild and empower the poorest children and
    orphans in Torit community through health care and education. PROJECT
    GOAL:Empowering the poorest children and orphans in their respective
    households with support from donors PROBLEM STATEMENT. About 62% of
    the children are living below poverty level, most of there parents
    died of HIV/AIDS and WAR effect and guardians rely on peasant economy
    and inadequate income generating actions are the hallmark of the poor
    majority of the widows and there vulnerable children and orphans in
    torit sub region. Children under 7 years of age represent 52% of the
    population that live in absolute poverty. Since the population is
    predominately young this means that a large proportion of the children
    are vulnerable. High mortality from HIV/AIDS in the region makes it
    more likely for most of the children live in absolute poverty to
    increase. The project focuses on vulnerable children and orphans and
    youth as the most marginalized groups in the community. A situation
    analysis carried out in 2010 showed that children encounter a number
    of problems in their day to day actions in life. Most CIN navigate
    was, HIV/AIDS effects, yucky violence of rights, limited access to
    educational services, poor health and sanitation, heavy work load
    inequitable sharing of benefits, The project therefore seeks to help
    the vulnerable children, orphans and the youth mostly. PROJECT
    OBJECTIVES To reduce child mortality.To help the orphans and
    vulnerable children in the meeting of educational needs in the
    society. • To alleviate poverty among the vulnerable children and
    orphans.To improve the health of the vulnerable children through
    sensitization and training.Provision of the livestock to the
    vulnerable children and orphans.To combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other
    diseases among the vulnerable children. PROJECT STRATEGY:To re-build
    and empower children in Torit region. Actions;Construction of a
    resource center for orphans and vulnerable children.Provision of basic
    needs for children, like paying school fees, school uniforms, books
    and pens, pencils and clothing in supporting their education.Training
    young disadvantaged children how to live healthy life and to teach
    them how to keep their hygiene.Alleviate poverty among children whose
    parents died of HIV/AIDS and WAR Access to education for vulnerable
    children and orphans. Expected results; Improved education for the
    orphans and vulnerable children.Improved standard of living for
    children.Reduced poverty among children.Reduced mortality rate

    • Thank you very much for contacting us! We applaud your work as it is a very worthy cause. We are a small NGO ourselves and are not able to provide financial support. We can, however, recommend President Bill Clinton’s book, “Giving”, in which is mentioned many aid organizations whose primary mission is to fund charities such as yours. Please keep in touch as we may be in your area soon!

    Head lice are parasitic wingless insects. They live on people’s heads and feed on their blood. An adult is called a louse and is about the size of a sesame seed. The eggs, called nits, are even smaller – almost like a dandruff flake. Lice and nits are easiest to detect at the neckline and behind the ears.*

    Please do take a look at our web portal
