BLOOM Charity is the product of a lifelong vision of two sisters who adopted children from a Moroccan orphanage. Their long, winding and beautifully interconnected adoption journeys allowed them to ultimately realize their shared dream of uplifting orphaned children. In 2015 Amina adopted her son at 3 months old and a year later Noma adopted her son at 4 years old. Their boys have flourished in their new homes with the nurturing love provided to them by their adoptive families. They have brought with them immeasurable light and laughter.
Amina and Noma were heartbroken by the conditions they saw in the orphanages of Morocco. Infants had very little muscle tone because they were rarely held. Babies would cry for hours on end, in stark rooms with rows of bare metal cribs. Toddlers sat, for days on end, in rooms with no natural sunlight, no entertainment and no place to play.
Amina and Noma yearn for opportunities for all the children in Moroccan orphanages. They have engaged in managing and funding various charitable programs in Morocco over the past 3 years. They have sent crib mobiles, sensory toys, and games for the orphans. They have hired dedicated caregivers to cuddle and play with the infants and toddlers. The positive response and success of these programs compelled them to begin BLOOM Charity.
BLOOM Charity is the first 501 (c)3 nonprofit in the U.S. dedicated to fundraising for Moroccan orphans. At BLOOM, we recognize the tremendous psychosocial needs of institutionalized orphans. We hope to improve the quality of life of institutionalized Moroccan orphans so they can blossom into adults that realize their full potential. BLOOM's first campaign aims to heal and uplift institutionalized children through sensory gardens and play areas.
We hope that you will join our campaign to heal and uplift children in Moroccan orphanages. Together, we can help orphans in Morocco realize their full potential. Please join BLOOM Charity's campaign to plant the seeds of love!
