Be There for Children in Need

There are roughly 153 million orphans worldwide. And every day, nearly 6,000 more children become orphans. To add, one in five children lives in a conflict or war zone, and studies show that these children are at high risk of experiencing violence, psychological stress, hunger, loss of education, and/or lack of access to basic resources. Over 12 million refugee boys and girls have not only lost their homes, but are no longer able to make a future for themselves.  

“The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘I and the one who looks after an orphan will be like this in Paradise,’ showing his middle and index fingers and separating them.” (Bukhari)

Medical Support

In many countries around the world, healthcare is not made accessible to everyone. For children living in poverty, this could mean the difference between life and death. For $50/month, you can help provide medical care for an orphan family, which includes their siblings or guardian. This monthly donation ensures that funds are always available when urgent and necessary medical care is required, including costs for prescriptions; travel to and from medical centers; and medical equipment such as eyewear, hearing aids, and wheelchairs. These funds also help orphans affected by chronic and long-term illnesses like asthma and diabetes. 

 

Last year, Islamic Relief was able to cover the costs of major surgical operations involving brain surgery, breast cancer, and spinal issues across 16 countries. Medical treatments were also provided for significant ailments like epilepsy, heart disease, kidney dialysis, and eyesight correction. With your help, we can do even more.

$50 can help provide medical support to an orphan

$300 can support livelihood training for families with orphaned children

$1000 can open up access to healthcare, education, and more for vulnerable children

Reema's Story

Reema lives with her mother and four siblings. She suffers from cancer, and this affected her in many ways.

She was sleepy all day and lacked energy to move. Being unable to study or do anything productive made her depressed.

Islamic Relief was able to help her by paying for her surgeries and therapy via the Orphans Medical Support program.

Due to her illness Reema couldn't pass 12th grade at school last year. She will try again this year; she wants to continue her studies and is very grateful for the help she has received.
