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.

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.

Orphans

There are over 153 million orphans in the world today.

Whenever there is war or suffering it is always the most vulnerable that suffer the most, this includes women and children.

The impacts of the COVID-19 are far reaching and will be borne by children for years to come. For millions learning has come to a halt and essential healthcare services like the delivery of vaccines are out of reach. Others have been plunged into a lifecycle of poverty.

Since last Ramadhan we have taken almost another 1500 orphan children into our sponsorship programmes and are supporting hundreds of other children through our many other projects.

The support and sponsorship of orphaned children holds a special place in Islam and the rewards are immense.

Al-Khair Foundations orphan monthly sponsorship program is not the cheapest. However, we proudly believe that it is the best value and provides care for the child in a manner that is befitting of the honour, care and respect that our religion teaches that we should provide for orphans. We try to ensure that every child gets a care package and support that is tailored to their needs.

We have a simple rule: If it is not good enough for our own children, then it is not good enough for the children on our orphan support program.

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”.
