“Whoever takes care of an orphan, he and I will be together in Paradise like this (his index and middle fingers held close together)” – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
Every child deserves the best start in life: a happy home, a safe place to play and access to quality education, medical care and nutrition.
However, for 1 in 5 children worldwide living in extreme poverty, many of these simple necessities and rights are out of reach. Instead, their life is incredibly challenging, with the risk of illiteracy, disease, child labour, lifelong poverty and even death. These children lack access to a safe home, access critical education and medical and/or psychosocial care. Their futures look unsafe, uncertain and bleak. But there is hope!
At Islamic Relief, we provide complete care to support vulnerable children and orphans in need. We invest in their futures, by supporting their families, carers and local communities to provide long-lasting, safe, sustainable solutions to poverty and inequality. Islamic Relief’s orphan project is considered the best in the field.
