Orphan Hope

On his recent visit to the Refugee Camps in Lebanon, Director Hfz Imraan Choonara interacted and met many Orphans who are displaced and in urgent need of bare necessities. On witnessing the plight of many women and children, Hfz Imraan together with the partner teams on the ground has implemented #OrphanHope – an initiative to assist Syrian and Palestinian Orphans. The Syrian conflict has been named the worst humanitarian crises of our time, with over a million people in need of emergency medical treatment and basic food, hygiene packets, blankets and other daily necessities. With many people being displaced and majority of the population unemployed it’s almost impossible for these people to afford anything.  Unfortunately women and children are most affected.

Africa Muslims Agency #OrphanHope aims at providing food, medical, educational needs and shelter to the many Orphans who are facing dismal conditions.  We urge you to sponsor an Orphan and give them hope.  Their future looks bleak yet they manage to remain positive in their circumstances. Africa Muslims Agency partner teams are on the ground 24 hours. Open your hearts in making a difference to a child.

Sahl ibn Sa’d reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate.
