Eid Gifts Distribution
The Eid Holiday season has once again passed, however, for many orphan children Eid is sadly no different from the other 364 days of the year. In fact, it is often more painful as they remember their loved ones who have passed away.
By the grace of Allah, Helping Hand’s Orphan Support Program (OSP) has been blessed with generous donors. This year, many donors sent a special Eid gift (Eidi) in the form of cash amount. Part of the joy of sponsorship is having the opportunity to partner with a child and see the difference you can make in his/her life.
Social organizers (SOs) of each cluster organized Eid parties in order to distribute the special Eid gifts. The SOs uniquely decorated the celebrations with balloons, streamers and other décor to give the children a sense of love, security, and fun. The openhearted extra donation for the sponsored orphan’s Eidi definitely made the Eid holiday much brighter for the children.

May Allah reward you with the best in this life and the next.
