Your Zakat will change lives.

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.


How will your Zakat Help?

Your Zakat is given to those in desperate need. When you donate your Zakat, Orphans in Need will distribute your Zakat to relieve the hardships of the most vulnerable and impoverished orphaned children and widowed families around the world such as: 

  • Widowed mother Hajira who went to make tea and the gas cylinder exploded in flames, killing her husband and four of her children and causing severe injury to herself and her two orphaned children.
  • Widowed mother Sughra who lost her husband, two sons and daughter.
  • 14-year-old Mariam who had a heart condition since she was born, and needed urgent life-saving heart surgery to survive. 
  • Widowed mother Zaitoon who washed her face with contiminated water and went blind within three days.
  • 5-year-old Abid and 6-year-old Majid who are chronically sick and need nutritious food and medicine to stay healthy.

Your Zakat helps us be there for widows and their orphaned 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 13 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.

Your Zakat is in safe hands

Orphans in Need are a leading global orphan charity specialising in providing sustainable solutions to orphans and widows living in unimaginable poverty. We ensure we deliver high-quality support to our beneficiaries every step of the way and always adhere to safeguarding laws and child protection policies. 

Our orphan homes are equipped with the best facilities and staff to ensure every child feels safe and happy. We provide psychological support to help them overcome their trauma, fund every child’s school fee payments, regularly review their school reports, and provide extra 1:1 lessons when required.

Our orphan care programmes have helped hundreds of orphans in 13 countries worldwide to succeed and become doctors, teachers, nurses, engineers and more. We continue to provide widowed families with warm clothing, safe shelter, nutritious food parcels to prevent starvation, and access to life-saving medical care. 

Your Zakat will save orphans suffering from ongoing starvation, disease and extreme poverty. It will help vulnerable widowed mothers who count on you to keep their orphaned children alive.  

When they see no hope in sight, we will be there with your Zakat. No matter how much you donate, your Zakat will make a difference and save orphans and widows.
