CARE FOR ORPHANS
WHAT WE DO > CARE FOR ORPHANS
SPONSOR AN ORPHAN
Losing one or both parents is traumatic for any child in any situation. Each year, millions of children are orphaned due to conflict, famine, and diseases.
Our collaboration with reliable and credible agencies and charities will help support orphans in more than 20 countries worldwide.
Over 500,000 orphans worldwide are currently in need of support to ensure that they finish school and have enough money for food, healthcare and household necessities.
This project aims to improve the living conditions of orphans and to organise social activities for orphans and their families. Orphans will receive clothes, school bags and books, notebooks and other school materials.
The Prophet (peace be upon Him) said:
"I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this,"
(putting his index and middle fingers together)
Given the opportunity of going back to school, these orphans could develop practical skills, which would enable their communities to break out of the cycle of poverty. Of the many members of society, orphans are among the most vulnerable. This is particularly true in countries where there is little social support and where services are largely inadequate.
The noble values which Islam has laid out can be summarily understood by looking at the importance the religion has given to looking after orphans.
Our orphans are supported in
Bangladesh - Cambodia - Gambia - Gaza - India - Indonesia - Nepal
