Give your zakat to hopeless orphans and widows and help give them a happier and healthier life.
Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam and is obligatory for every able-bodied Muslim to pay before the end of the Islamic year.
“…Teach them that Allah has made it obligatory for them to pay the Zakat from their property and
it is to be taken from the wealthy among them and given to the poor." (Bukhari)
Zakat is given to those in desperate need. By giving your Zakat to Orphans in Need you will be helping to relieve the hardships of the most vulnerable in society, including impoverished orphan children and widowed families.
When you donate your zakat, Orphans in Need will distribute it amongst the neediest orphans and
widows around the world, like Hajira.
When Hajira went to make tea for her husband the gas cylinder, used for the cooker, exploded.
Unknowingly to her, the gas was leaking. The accident left Hajira with severe burns all over her body that have permanently damaged her ability to move. Her children who were asleep at the time also
suffered leaving one child disfigured. Hajira’s husband didn’t survive.
Even after weeks of recovery Hajira couldn’t sit or stand for too long and with young children who needed their mother, Hajira failed to provide for them. She desperately needed help.
We have been supporting Hajira and her family by providing regular food parcels and other essentials
like access to better medical care. We also gave safety training in gas usage so that the family can
feel safer at home again.
Your Zakat helps us be there for widows like Hajira and their orphan children in their time of need.
Your Zakat to Orphans in Need is like a Sadaqah Jariyah, a gift that keeps on giving.
By providing food, clothes, medical support and education, to relieve their suffering you are giving
orphans and widows better opportunities for the future.
We have carried out projects all over the 14 different countries we work in using all of your Zakat to better the lives of thousands of the neediest orphans and widows.
Give your Zakat to Orphans in Need and start making a difference.
