The prophet Muhammed (PBUH) said, “I and the person who looks after an orphan will be in paradise together like this,” reports Al-Bukhari.

There are a staggering 140 million orphans across the world, and the numbers are only rising. These children have experienced more agony in their short lives than most of us could ever imagine. Especially for millions of orphaned children in developing countries – losing one or both parents almost always leads to a life of poverty, abuse and sometimes death.

United Hands Relief established the Orphan Sponsorship program to ensure that the livelihood of orphaned children in Palestine, Jordan, and East Africa are being met. United Hands Relief offers one-to-one sponsorship. Through sponsors like you, our teams are able to provide nutritious meals, clothing, essential health care, education and other basic necessities to orphans, while sponsors receive regular updates and photos on the little ones they support.
