Whoever takes care of an orphan, he and I will be together in Paradise like this (two fingers close together). – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) [Bukhari]

Many of who consistently face the threat of hunger, poverty and insecurity. By sponsoring an orphan you can help a child come out of this dire situation and give them a chance for a better life. We have so many organizations that are engaged in supporting the welfare of orphans and have sponsorship packages for orphans living in the Kingdom and abroad. These sponsorship packages include healthcare, shelter, clothing and education amongst other benefits for a nominal fee.
