From Sahl bin Sa’ad (may Allah be pleased with him), he said: “The Messenger of Allah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam 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.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

In the entire continent of Africa, there are an estimated 52 million orphans. In sub-Saharan regions of Africa, around 20 percent of the population under 18 is considered orphaned.

Many orphans have no support and are forced to fend for themselves as well as their siblings. This includes maintaining a household, providing food and working to support themselves as well as fund education and medical costs. Many orphans turn to extended family members for support, but they are often unable to provide it. Their extended family often includes grandparents and women, who tend to make 31 percent less than the average household.


With only 30 USD you can support a orphan family in Africa. These orphan families are often mothers or grandmothers trying hard to support their orphaned children through school.

You can ease their burden with your monthly donations.
