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.
Providing care for orphans is especially important to the Islamic Relief community. Islamic Relief USA has dedicated programs to do just that: Orphan Support and annual Orphan Sponsorship. Orphan Support means your donation can help orphans however is needed most in a country of your choice or anywhere around the world. And donations toward Orphan Support are flexible—you can offer support whenever you’re ready, and as often as you like. 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.
Full annual sponsorship costs between $43 and $65 a month—just about $1.50 to $2 a day, less than the price of a cup of coffee. A sponsor’s support helps cover essential needs, like food, clothing, health care, education. Of course, every country is different, and, sometimes, sponsorship programs are customized to meet particular conditions.
