Orphans Sponsorship

A Vital Lifeline For Many Vulnerable Young Children In Yemen

In every city in Yemen, there are children who do not have the loving support of a family. There are children whose only shelter is a piece of plastic sheeting or a cardboard box. There are children working in dangerous jobs for little or no pay.

Sponsor a child from just £20 a month.

For these children, these desperate situations are all they know. Young lives without hope, young lives without a secure future, living day to day with the risk of abuse, neglect and exploitation.

All religions and faiths encourage sponsorship of orphans and praise those who sponsor an orphan. An orphan in Islam is defined as a child who has lost his father or both of his parents. In Arabic, an orphan is called a “yateem” Of the many members of society, orphans are among the most vulnerable. This is particularly true in countries where there is little social support and where services are largely inadequate.

The noble values which Islam has laid out can be summarily understood by looking at the importance the religion has given to looking after orphans.
‘I and the person, who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this,’ (putting his index and middle fingers together). – Saheeh al-Bukhari.
