Orphans Eid Al Fitr Clothing Initiative

BISMILLAH AR-RAHMAN AR-RAHEEM, As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa-Rahmatullah wa-Barakaatu,

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa-Rahmatullah wa-Barakaatu dear brothers, sisters, and all our supporters who are closer to home and many others far away around the globe! Al Noor Charitable Agency for the Needy of Zanzibar is delighted to present you with our Orphan’s Eid Al Fitr Clothing Program report.

Watching these orphans will fill your hearts with happiness and inspiration – they seem so happy with so little and so very grateful – SUBHAN’ALLAH! Today we witness something truly special for these orphans – the distribution of Eid clothing!

Jazakum Allah Khairan to all those who supported our clothing program for the 484 orphans who depend on us. Know that your kindness has made an indelible impact on someone’s life – and Insha’Allah you will find this report rewarding as much as it has given happiness to our orphans and their mothers who have received your help. Alhamdulillah, our orphans are now happier, healthier and more hopeful children. YOU helped us turn this around Alhamdulillah!

Caring for orphans is an immensely challenging task but we should remember, behind every need is a story of struggle and tragedy. We are MUSLIMS and our religion is an AMANAH (a trust) and the needs of the orphans is the responsibility of all believing men and women. How can we forsake children who are needy and lonely after losing their father and sole breadwinner? Without your generosity and compassion, their lives would be etched with desperation and trauma.

We must continue helping them and nurturing their ability to not only survive and be strong but also to build their resiliency and belief in themselves in order for them to thrive and grow. Many of our orphans are very intelligent and simply need the right opportunities to flourish.

This is the story of our amazing journey which started a decade ago when our orphans were malnourished, sick, and some without shelter. We welcome each of you to travel with us on this rewarding journey. Help us raise money to support education, enrichment and health care for the orphans served by Al Noor Charitable Agency for the Needy. With your support, we can increase the desperately needed quality of care and capacity of this project to reach more of the children that need them.
