“They ask you as to what they should spend. Say ‘whatever wealth you spend, it is for the parents, and the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy and the wayfarer’; and whatever good you do, Allah surely knows of it…”
- The Holy Qur’an (2:215)
What is An Orphan?
An orphan is a child who has lost one or both their parents; an abandoned child who has no means to provide for themselves or be able to meet their own basic needs.
Currently, there are over 150 million orphans worldwide today. They could be orphaned due to conflict, war, disease, human trafficking or even extreme poverty, but an orphaned child is extremely vulnerable, due to the lack of emotional and physical support, and guidance for the future.
What is the Aim?
Here at Human Relief Foundation, our aim has been protecting the needs and requirements of many vulnerable orphans since our establishment in 1991. We currently have support programmes in Pakistan, Iraq, Palestinian Territories, Somalia, Lebanon and Jordan.
Our core focus is to cover the child’s basic needs, such as providing sheltered accommodation, clothing, food and nourishment, education, healthcare emotional and social well-being, and much more besides.
The children of today are the pioneers of our future, and there isn’t a lonelier place to be than without your family and loved ones.

“Serve Allah, and do good - to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near or far, the companion by your side, the wayfarer, and what your right hands possess: For Allah loves not the arrogant, the vainglorious” - The Holy Qur’an (4:36)
