This fundraiser is being organized by
University Of Waterloo Orphan Sponsorship Program

Help UWOSP fundraise for basic necessities that can provide a brighter life for orphans worldwide.

The goal of this campaign is to raise $5,000 for a general orphan fund that helps provide essential necessities and long term care to orphaned children worldwide. Orphans in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe have been impacted by humanitarian crises and all of the collected funds will go towards providing them a promising stable life.

The Humanitarian aid organization UNICEF estimates that 153 million children worldwide are orphans. These children are often deprived of the basic necessities of life and are constantly facing malnutrition, poverty, war, diseases and lack of education. It is in our power and a duty incumbent on us to take action and help provide support and care for these children.

How is Islamic Relief helping?

Islamic Relief continues to support over 63,000 orphans around the globe in order to secure a better life for them. They provide aid by means of securing access to clean water, food, education, and building safe villages for these children across the planet.

More details on Islamic Relief's Orphan Sponsorship Program can be found here: https://www.islamicreliefcanada.org/what-we-do/orphans/

Take action today by donating any amount to provide these orphans with support and care.  

As narrated by Prophet Muhammed ﷺ, “The one who takes care of an orphan is with me in Paradise like this”, putting his index and middle fingers together. [Al-Bukhari]

Be sure to share this fundraiser with your friends and family as it gives them the opportunity to contribute to making a change in an orphan’s life. For every donation they make, the blessings of the reward will come back to you for sharing the cause.

Peace be upon you,

Orphan Charity: Save a child’s life today

For many orphaned children, the reality of poverty is a daily burden. Left wondering: where will my next meal come from? Where are we going to live? If we get sick and can’t afford medicine…will we survive? Every day is a challenge.

Deprived of their education, health care and safe places to play and grow, orphaned kids are incredibly vulnerable and face a bleak future. They need critical care and support – and that’s where Islamic Relief comes in.

With your support, you can help us save orphans 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 ﷺ: “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.


Support Orphan Care Project  

If you can’t afford to sponsor an orphan on a 1-1 basis, there is still a way you can support orphans and children in need! Through our Orphan Care Projects, your donation is pooled together to support orphans who are in need of some extra care, assist their mothers and even entire orphan families.

For just $30/month or any amount you choose – your support is allocated to meet their most essential needs, including:

Medical Aid: Assistive equipment, surgeries, therapy or treatment

Educational Support: Tuition fees, educational materials, tools, or skills training

Shelter Repair: Home repairs, electricity supply, clean water or sanitation facilities

Orphan Projects: Supporting education, health, social welfare, sports and leisure activities

Through our Orphan Care Projects fund, 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.

Islamic Relief works with communities to strengthen their resilience to calamities, and we provide vital emergency aid when disasters occur.

We help the impoverished access basic services, including education, water and sanitation, as well as healthcare. We provide lasting routes out of poverty through our sustainable development schemes. Our integrated approach to progress is transforming communities worldwide.

We tackle the root causes of poverty and make sure that the world’s most vulnerable people have real influence in both our programs and advocacy.

Our key values, of compassion, justice, custodianship, sincerity and excellence – a critical part of our Islamic faith - inspire us each and every day to create positive change and remember the sanctity of life.

In line with Islamic teachings on the value of every human life, we provide assistance to whoever needs it most, regardless of race, religion or gender. We work to transform and save lives of people in crisis both Canada and across the world.
