Losing a parent is traumatic for any child, anywhere. In countries where war, famine and poverty are common, millions of children are orphaned and left to struggle for survival. Staying with a compassionate relative helps orphans begin to overcome the trauma of losing one or both parents.
Many orphans around the world are exploited as cheap labor when they are forced to fend for themselves. This lifestyle not only robs these children of their childhoods, but also limits their potential to grow and reach for a brighter future. For these children, time is running out.
قال تعالى : (ولكن البر من آمن بالله واليوم الآخر والملائكة والكتاب والنبيين وآتى المال على حبه ذوي القربى واليتامى) البقرة/177
"but Al-Birr (righteousness) is (the quality of) the one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, ..." [al-Baqarah 2:177]
With our global affiliate Islamic Relief, the total number sponsored has reached 30,000 a year. Each child receives food, clothing and an education. The support is often enough to lift an orphan's entire family out of poverty. One-to-one orphan sponsorships strive to keep orphans with a family member - allowing orphans to remain with a guardian who may not have been able to afford to care for them on their own.
Full sponsorship costs between $60 and $75 a month - between $2 and $2.50 a day.
With your help we can give these children the care they need, providing them with food, shelter, healthcare, education and emotional support.

وعن سهل بن سعد عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : (أنا وكافل اليتيم في الجنة هكذا وقال بإصبعيه السبابة والوسطى) رواه البخاري
It was narrated from Sahl ibn Sa’d that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “I and the one who sponsors an orphan will be like this in Paradise, and he gestured with his index and middle fingers." Narrated by al-Bukhaari, no. 5659.
