Support our Sponsored Orphan from Syria!
As'salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh,
In the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria, our group of friends decided to make a meaningful and consistent impact on the life of an orphan by sponsoring him through the Islamic Relief Canada's Orphan Sponsorship Program.
Let us introduce you to Ahmed, a 14-year-old orphan in Aleppo who lost his father. Ahmed has no siblings and is currently living in difficult conditions, including inadequate water, gas, and electricity supply.
We are reaching out to you for your support in ensuring that Ahmed continue to receive the necessities to survive for the long term.
We have already been splitting the monthly sponsorship fee of $90 between six of us for a few months and are asking for your help in continuing to support Ahmed.
Our goal is to fundraise enough to cover at least the next year of sponsorship costs ($90/month), and even more, insha Allah. Your contribution can make a significant difference in Ahmed's life, and together, we can make a positive impact on the future of this vulnerable child.
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Myself and the caretaker of an orphan will be in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together." (Bukhari)

How we’re supporting orphans and children in need
At Islamic Relief, we don’t believe in simply providing one-off care to support children and orphans in need. We instead invest in children’s long-term futures, supporting their families, carers and local communities to provide long-lasting safe sustainable solutions to poverty and inequality.
We work as a Muslim orphan charity to provide child-friendly safe spaces, empower communities and develop long-term solutions to poverty and critical issues such as human trafficking, child labour, and child marriage.
We support children across the globe in a variety of ways, including: sponsoring orphaned children across the globe, providing schooling, regular meals and financial support for careers/families, providing Syrian refugee children with critical education, housing and nutritional support, offering critical food aid to severely malnourished children in conflict-fueled Yemen, and ensuring that children living with disabilities and the trauma of war in Gaza can access critical medical and psychosocial care.
By providing nutritional services, health care, water solutions, education and family livelihood support, as well as striving to tackle critical issues including gender-based violence, child labour and climate change with affect local communities and in particular young girls, we’re not only transforming futures; we’re saving lives.
Orphan Charity: Save a child’s life today
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 the 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.
Living in refugee camps, traumatized by war or simply unable to go to school in their local community due to crippling poverty, these children and orphan kids lack the means to keep safe at home, access critical education and medical and/or psychosocial care. Their futures look unsafe, uncertain and bleak.
“The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘I and the one who looks after an orphan will be like this in Paradise,’ showing his middle and index fingers and separating them.” (Bukhari)
By donating, or sponsoring an orphan, you can help save an orphan and transform the lives of vulnerable children around the world.
Giving charity to orphans in Islam
Charity protects one from calamity, acts as shade on the Day of Judgement, and showers us in Allah’s (SWT) blessings. Your Zakat and Sadaqah Jariyah when you sponsor an orphan or provide medical and education support to needy children contains so much barakah.
The importance of giving charity to orphans in Islam is highlighted by Prophet Muhammad (SAW): “The best house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are well-treated. The worst house is the one in which orphans are ill-treated.” [Bukhari]
Not only will your donation mean that orphans and their families benefit immediately but these programs will provide the tools to support themselves and pass on to the next generation, and the benefit will be ongoing. It is a Sadaqah Jariyah unlike any other!
This means the effect of your one donation will be multiplied to help orphan after orphan and family after family access food, medical care, clean water, and education in a dignified manner for years to come. It is the gift that keeps giving, and will continuously help you to earn rewards.
