S.O.W. Strategy

Early 2014, we developed the Adun® Initiative and since then we have supported individuals and made contributions to other charities that share our ethos, some of which include the Esha Fund, Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex and London and assisting with housing difficulties.

After a year of working together, we were able to streamline our focus and identify specific causes we wanted to support and develop. This birthed the SOW strategy – Strangers (Migrants), Orphans & Widows. It’s drawn from verses in the bible that demonstrate God’s care and concern for people found in such situations – asking that we care for the stranger, widow and orphan because they usually have no one to care for them. (Deuteronomy 14:28-29)

Strangers (Migrants)

Immigration has become an issue on which the UK stands divided and more migrants find themselves unable to settle, access much needed support and are unable to sufficiently integrate within the system to become independent. This is where Adun® would like to provide assistance.

We aim to offer migrants the following services:

  • Immigration advice and support by email and over the telephone helpline
  • Welfare and temporary housing advice and referrals
  • CV clinic

Presently, we are only able to provide the CV and life skills support and you can access this service here.

The provision of immigration advice is a regulated service and we are currently in the process of obtaining accreditation from the OISC in order to do so. If, however, you are urgently in need of immigration advice, here is a list of other charitable organisations that provide this service.

Orphans, Children & Young People

Millions of children around the world are orphaned and millions more are made destitute because of conflict and war, sickness and disease, trafficking, exploitation and extreme poverty. However dire the situation may seem overseas, it’s just as dire here in the UK with over 900,000 adults and children relying on emergency food and support from food banks in 2014. It goes without saying that there are children and young people here in the UK who are suffering from extreme hardship because of conflict within the family or financial difficulty.

We currently offer this sector of society the following services:

  • Contributing food, provisions, books, clothes and shoes for children in families suffering financial hardship
  • Healthcare grants for children with ill health
  • CV clinic

If you are in need of any of these services or know anyone in need of such, please contact us here.

Widows/Widowers

In addition to the trauma of losing a loved one, being widowed can be one of the most overwhelming experiences in a person’s life. We believe that no one who has suffered such a loss, should be left to cope on his or her own and we intend to work with existing charitable organisations in this area to contribute to this cause.

We support causes that provide widows and widowers with the following services:

  • Telephone counselling helpline and online advice service to help relieve the burden of bereavement and provide emotional support
  • Advice on government support available such as bereavement allowance, widowed parent allowance and bereavement payments
  • Back to work advice, CV clinic and life skills training

If you are in need of any of these services or know anyone in need of such, please contact us here.
