CARE FOR ORPHANS
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.
'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). - Saheeh al-Bukhari
Our aim is to spearhead a project to alleviate the pain of those less fortunate than us - especially the orphans - and together help to make a differance and put a smile back on their faces, insya-Allah.
Our mission is to deliver aid and development programmes to those who need it most in an efficient and effective way without prejudice to people’s religion, sex, age or ethnic background.
Orphan Aid Project Overview:
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 such as HIV/AIDS.
Our collaboration with reliable and credible Islamic Relief Agencies worldwide like Ethar Relief, Penny Appeal, Ummah Welfare Trust, Muslim Aid, YKU Aceh and Rumah Yatim will help support orphans in more than 20 countries worldwide.
Over 100,000 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 receive clothes, school bags and books, notebooks and other school materials.
Orphans are supported in Albania, Aceh, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Chechnya, Cambodia, Eritrea, Gambia, India, Indonesia, Kashmir, Palestine/Gaza, Philippines, Somalia, Syria, and Pakistan.
Given the opportunity of going back to school, these orphans could develop practical skills, which would enable thier communities to break out of the cycle of poverty.
1. ORPHAN SPONSORSHIP
An orphan in Islam is defined as a child who has lost his father or both of his parents. In Arabic, an orphan is called a yateem. Currently, according to UNICEF, there are approximately 150 million orphans worldwide
The number of young children being orphaned is increasing: families torn apart through war, poverty, hunger and disease. Exploitation and abuse are rife. The world sees the problem in its vastness. We see millions of individuals each being denied a future with opportunities.
Alhamdulillah, Global Ehsan Relief together with its international partners supports thousands of orphans, helping safeguard their iman and providing them a chance where there one was not.
he project includes children's education, health support, provision of shelter and sanitary latrines shelter and practical training for widows. These include a high quality education, medical treatment, support for the family or guardian, dietary needs, and clothing and transport.
Widows and orphans are usually amongst the poorest of the poor. Orphans from destitute families are often deprived of their rights and are often survive in extreme poverty, homelessness, neglect and remain largely uncared for.
Sponsorship provides orphans and their families with enough money to cover their basic needs including food, shelter, healthcare and education.
Like all children, orphans too dream of happiness and success.
Let us all make a differance in their lives. The sponsorship programme will ensure that orphans’ social, financial and educational needs are met.
Transforming a life costs us little but ensures us a place in Paradise inshaAllah. It is a means of continuous charity as the donor receives rewards for all the good that the sponsored child does.
The cost of sponsoring an orphan is $80 per month or $960 per annum.
2. HIFZ ORPHAN SPONSORSHIP
Gain reward beyond measure by helping an orphan become hafiz.
You can gain reward by supporting an orphan child. And you can gain reward by helping someone become hafiz of the Holy Qur’an. The reward for doing both could be immeasurable.
Hifz Orphan is a unique three year sponsorship programme that gives orphans the quality care they need to build a brighter future and supports them in reading, learning and memorising the Holy Qur’an.
Special hifz classes for our orphans are small in size and led by experienced teachers using modern techniques. By the end of the programme the children can recite with beautiful tajweed, and they then get additional support to continue in Islamic or mainstream education, or to start an apprenticeship.
All our hifz orphans get the same benefits of our Orphan sponsorship programme too – nutritious meals each day, clothing and school uniform, healthcare and a dedicated foster mother – all in a loving, caring home.
You can help an orphan child become hafiz of the Holy Qur’an for just
$80 a month or $960 a year
“The best of you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it to others.”
Your support provides a student with the financial means to complete what is usually a three-year course. It is one of the best forms of Sadaqah Jariyah and the donor can expect to receive Allah's blessings so long as the recipient remains alive. If the recipient has passed on his learning before his death, then the rewards continue through the vehicle of his students.
GER with its partners will provide you with an annual progress report about the development of the student you sponsor, insyaAllah.
Orphans Sponsorship Program includes the following:
1) Upon first contribution, you will receive a welcome letter to acknowledge your start of Orphan Sponsorship programme

3. SPONSOR AN ORPHAN IN GAZA/SYRIA
When a family loses the first line of support the father or in worst cases both parents, not only does the child have to cope with the tragedy of losing someone very dear, but also the loss of a regular source of income, which provided them the basic requirments in life.
As part of our relief policy, we prioritises widowed mothers and orphaned children. Over half a million of them are estimated to populate the many displacement camps in Gaza & Syria today. With no breadwinner or extended support, many of them face huge uncertainties regarding food and income. With the surrounding climate as precarious as ever, support for these groups remains vital if they are to survive.
Orphans are amongst the most vulnerable in society as they do not have the same opportunities as other children. They are often forced into child labour in order to survive and miss out on a normal childhood.
By sponsoring a child for, you will be providing him or her with the basics that every child deserves - food, health care and education.
Our orphan support scheme in Syria & Gaza began with just 300 orphans. Financial support was provided to the guardians of children who had been left orphaned in the conflict. The programme has grown in the past year. Today, 1000 orphans across the country receive regular support, alhamdulillah.
The guardian of each child receives a monthly allowance which covers the child’s food, clothing and education costs.
The cost of sponsoring an orphan in Gaza & Syria is $80 per month or $960 per year.
4. ORPHANS FOOD SPONSORSHIP
One of the most chronic needs in the orphanages we are supporting in over 12 countires, is good, nutritious food for the orphans or orphan families. There are tens of thousands of orphans who are in need of your generous food sponsorships. If you can't help all, help at least one.
