Appeal for Sponsor an Orphan
There are over 153 million children are orphan worldwide who have experienced the loss of one or both of their parents. These vulnerable children face numerous challenges, including poverty, hunger, disease, and exploitation. As believers, it is our duty to support these children and provide them with a path to hope.
FRDP International is dedicated to providing orphan care in Pakistan and Kashmir, working directly with local communities to identify and support the most vulnerable orphans. Our goal is to help these children grow into educated, skilled, and moral individuals who can help lift their families out of poverty and continue to support others in need.
Orphan sponsorship provides an opportunity for donors to make a meaningful difference in the lives of these children. For just £336 per year, a donor can provide an orphan with basic necessities such as food, clothing, education, healthcare, and shelter. This simple act of generosity can have a profound impact on a child’s life, helping to break the cycle of poverty and empowering them to build a brighter future.
In the Quran, Allah (swt) emphasizes the importance of caring for orphans and protecting their wealth and honor. In Surah Baqarah, Ayat 177, it is written: “Righteousness is not in turning your faces towards the east or the west. Rather, the righteous are those who believe in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Books, and the prophets; who give charity out of their cherished wealth to relatives, orphans, the poor, needy travellers, beggars, and for freeing captives; who establish prayer, pay alms-tax, and keep the pledges they make; and who are patient in times of suffering, adversity, and in the heat of battle. It is they who are true in faith, and it is they who are mindful of Allah.”
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) also spoke about the importance of supporting orphans, saying, “Bring the orphan close to you, pat his head, and feed him with the same food you eat. It will soften your heart and fulfill your need.” He also said, “the one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this”, holding his two fingers together to illustrate the proximity.
The situation facing orphans worldwide is dire. In the poorest countries, one in four children are engaged in child labor, and an estimated 61 million primary-school-age children are out of school, with 53% of them being girls. Additionally, 69 million children suffer from malnutrition.
