Sponsoring an orphan has endless rewards in this life and in the hereafter. The Prophet (ملسو هيلع هللا ىلص) said, ’Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim, from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfarer’.
[Muslim] which means giving charity increases our wealth. Orphans have little to no access to education which leads to a minimal chance of securing a future to support themselves and their families. It is our responsibility to save these children, ensuring they thrive in a safe world where they will receive food, medical checks, and the necessary education. Your sponsorship will have multiplying rewards as it is Sadaqa Jariyah; you will continue to gain endless reward. At Help Yateem, it is our duty to place these children into education as they are victims of abuse, violence, exploitation therefore falling into despair.
Help Yateem exists so that the orphans’ lives don’t spiral downward into an abyss of violence, exploitation, and despair. We focus on clean living conditions, firstly – especially clean water so that disease doesn’t spread. Then we focus on education – because otherwise the children are highly vulnerable to abuse and being recruited as child soldiers. Psychologically, they are angry due to the loss of their parents. But anger is like a fuel. If you put fuel on a fire, the fire grows until it’s out of control and creates chaos. But if you put that same fuel in an engine, it drives you and takes you where you want to go. Therefore, Help Yateem works to channel the orphans’ anger — redirecting their energy toward education. Only then will these children become the peace makers of tomorrow instead of the peace wreckers. As an international organization, Help Yateem is open to everyone.
