Orphan

The Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) said, “I and the person who looks after an orphan will be in paradise together like this,” reports Al-Bukhari, describing the motion as raising his forefinger and middle finger together.

Orphan

50,000 orphans currently sponsored by the global Islamic Relief community masha’Allah!

Caring for orphans is especially important to the Islamic Relief family. Islamic Relief USA has dedicated programs to do just that: Annual Orphan Sponsorships and Orphan Family Support.

Annual Orphan Sponsorships provide direct support to an orphan for a full year. Sponsorships through IRUSA allow orphans to stay with a loving guardian by helping the guardian take care of the child’s needs.

Orphan Family Support means you help uplift an orphan and his or her family into self-reliance and independence by giving them the tools they need to thrive! What’s more: The family gets the medical and psychological support they need, all while building a sustainable living so that they can break the chains of poverty, and rely on themselves for years beyond what a traditional sponsorship would offer. And donations toward Orphan Support are flexible—you can offer support whenever you’re ready, and as often as you like.

Join the thousands of dedicated, caring humanitarians who are caring for orphans today! In Gaza, Palestine, our donors’ support focuses on education and vocational training, along with monthly financial support. For just over $2/day ($800/year), you can give an orphan and her entire family tools they can use to thrive — for life! What’s more: The family gets the medical and psychological support they need, all while building a sustainable living so that they can break the chains of poverty and rely on themselves for years beyond what a traditional sponsorship would offer. Masha’Allah!

In our Bangladesh program, all of the school-age orphans are attending school, and all of their guardians — often widowed mothers — have received training and started businesses so they can support their children on their own. This gives them the incredible gift of self-sufficiency. Local staff report that many of them are breaking free of the cycle of poverty.

Of course, every country is different, and, sometimes, orphans’ programs are customized to meet particular conditions. For details, please connect with us at 1-855-447-1001 or donorcare@irusa.org.

You can provide so much to an orphan all for such a relatively small amount of money, and insha’Allah be among those the prophet considers close to him! The value of these efforts is immense, masha’Allah.
