Why Sponsor an Orphan?"Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor,
the orphan and the wayfarer." (Muslim)
What do your children mean to you? And how would you feel if you couldn’t be there to love, guide and protect them?
An estimate of over 200 million children worldwide have experienced the loss of a parent. A lot of these children come from disadvantaged backgrounds
When losing a parent, access to education, the sustenance of nutritious meals, the protection of shelter and the chance of a secure future all become an impossible dream. This is why the responsibility of care for the orphan falls on all of us.
Who could be more deserving of our help than the child who has no one?
