“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)
This number represents worldwide orphans without one or both parents. That’s 153 million children without someone to give them a home, safety, or love.
Threats facing orphans
Thousands of orphaned children remain vulnerable to poverty and sickness. Lack of proper shelter leaves many of them displaced, living in institutions or with inadequate housing.
Without an education and the tools to support themselves, they are often without security and stability.
Dealing with constant life-threatening situations, there is only a small chance of a brighter future ahead.
Islamic Relief believes in protecting and fulfilling childrens’ rights. Together, our global efforts help sponsor over 60,000 children around the world, transforming their lives with opportunities and aid. Our orphan sponsorship program is one of the best in its field and targets more countries in need.
