Widow Sponsorship

Narrated Abu Hurairah(ra): The Prophet (saw) said: “The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujahid, who fights for Allah’s cause, or like him who performs Salaat all the night and observesSaum (fasts) all day”.

Saheeh al-Bukhari

- Quote by the Prophet (PBUH): "I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this," putting his index and middle fingers together. [Bukhari]

- "Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfarer." [Muslim]

- Give the gift of a new life.

- Every day, an estimated 5,700 more children become orphans

- Every child is deserving of a happy and healthy life

About the Project

Orphans are among the most vulnerable members of society.

In developing nations where children may already suffer the effects of war, poverty, and natural disaster, losing one or both parents is often synonymous with losing their lifeline.

These orphans are left to fend for themselves - sometimes from a very young age - and are susceptible to hunger, disease and exploitation. Their access to education is limited, their security threatened, and their futures bleak. Not to mention the severe grief and trauma that they will burden for the rest of their lives.

Al-Khair Foundation believes that it is our collective duty to care for these children, wherever in the world they may be. Through our longstanding sponsorship programme, donors can provide an orphan with all the basic necessities of life: food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and education.

On top of this, what sets us apart from other sponsorship programmes is that we value the emotional, mental and psychological wellbeing of the orphan as well. Al-Khair Foundation understands that the loss of one or both parents can be extremely destabilising for a child. As such, we offer individualised psychosocial support and counselling.

When you sponsor an orphan through Al-Khair Foundation, you can rest assured that they are being given holistic care to secure a brighter future.

Orphan & Widows


In many societies across the world the male is often the breadwinner and is responsible for providing for his family. However, when he passes away the family are often left in an extremely vulnerable position and often face real hardship.

Your donations allow widows to live with independence and allow them to have hope for the future. Al-Khair Foundation provide sponsorship for widows and their families and also livelihood programmes which enable widows to gain the skills needed to earn for themselves and ultimately restore hope for a better future.
