Save an Orphan...

Assalaam Alykum,

On July 16-18th, 2010, before the devastating floods affected the area of Balakot, Helping Hand for Relief and Development’s Orphans Department had a 3-day Summer Camp for young leaders from our Orphan cluster in Hazara.

These camps allow the Orphans to develop social skills, build confidence, self respect and service skills. Social skills help them to develop leadership skills, communication and participation along with responsibility.

There were future plans of Eid Gifts, allowances for Orphans, Medical Screenings and Hygiene Kits but the Floods have affected these Orphans and their families need our help. In general orphans and their families are living in substandard homes or in unsafe (lower than well built) areas which were exposed to severe rainfalls this year. Most of the houses are damaged.

HHRD has sponsored Orphans in 16 countries across the globe. Please consider sponsoring Orphans in those countries as well.

There are 2 different types of Orphans programs at HHRD:

Orphan Sponsorship (1 to 1): allows you to support a specific child on an ongoing basis. The money you donate, either thorough monthly or annual payments is given directly top the orphans family or guardian. You receive the orphan’s full profile after your initial donation and regular progress reports during the year.

General Orphan Support: This can be a donation of any amount and can be a one time donation as well. Here your donation contributes towards helping more than one orphan. Your donations are used towards benefitting the orphans’ educational needs.

Your donations towards the Orphan Program can make a significance difference in an Orphans’ life.

We are in the last 10 days of Ramadan. It is the best time to make the most of our Zakat and last few days to make our Fitra donations.

You may Text FITRA to 27722 to donate $10 to give your Fitra towards Pakistan Flood Relief.
