The life of an Orphan is not only beset by the great loss of a loving parent, but is also one at higher risk of poverty, struggle and exploitation. These children around the world are deprived of basic necessities such as education, health services, shelter, and access to safe, clean water. Natural and man-made disasters leave a trail of misery, intensifying the pre-existing conditions of poverty and deprivation.
Becoming a part of our OrphanAid program goes further than meeting the needs of just one child. Our many years of experience have taught us that the only way to make a lasting difference in a child’s life is to benefit other children and families within the community. MAA provides orphans with essential food, clean water, shelter, education, and regular health checks.
Our OrphanAid program provides assistance to orphanages where funds directly benefit the needs of the orphans and indirectly benefit the rest of the community through developmental programmes, water and sanitation, health care programmes and environmental programmes. The programme is dedicated to providing quality assistance to orphans regardless of their race, creed or gender.
The beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was himself also an orphan, and he encouraged his fellow believers in aiding orphans with this Hadith narrated by Sahl bin Sa'd (ra), where The Prophet (pbuh) said:
“I AND THE PERSON WHO TAKES CARE OF AN ORPHAN WILL BE TOGETHER LIKE *THIS* IN PARADISE” [then he raised his index and middle fingers together]
Saeeh Al Bukhari, Book 8, vol. 73, Hadith #34
