Like Widows orphans are also the weakest members of the society which are often forgotten about, ignored or disowned. Some intelligent orphans/poor students do not get any financial support to further their studies.
Education is a vital part of Islam and essential for the poor and wealthy. Education will enable orphans to be free from poverty and improve their situation for themselves and their families. The prophet encouraged the believers to remove themselves from the poverty due to its significant impact it had on faith.

Alhuda Orphanage & Education Centre (Vejalpur)
Ummah Helping Hands have started a new project to construct an orphanage house and education centre. Al Huda Orphanage and Education centre will be an institute comprised of secular education and religious set up. This set up will be for both orphans and local children. The orphanage dormitory will be located on the top floor and will accommodate 50-60 orphans that are in desperate need of a loving caring home.
Where is the AlHuda Orphanage and Education Centre located?
The building was previously the only Muslim high school in Vejalpur which wasn’t able to continue due to a lack of funds. Thus, the children in Vejalpur were missing out on vital higher education. UHH made the decision to take on this new project as they could see the benefits and huge change the new project would bring to this poor deprived village.
As you can imagine, this is a huge task but one that we are looking forward to. With your help we will be able to home and educate young Muslim children and give them a bright future.
Why we need an Orphanage house?
Unfortunately the children also suffer from many types of abuse from the people looking after them and due to this they start working at a very young age. They lose out on their childhood and it becomes very hard for them to see a brighter future.
In connection of construction of building, purchase of plots, renovation of present building etc. We have spent Rs 265,000 so far. Our requirement for the said project is RS 60,000 - 70,000 for full running of the Orphanage. The Orphanage has a capacity to admit 50 orphans.
Alhamdulillah with the grace of Allah and your help Al Huda Orphanage project is nearly accomplished and after Ramadhan 2016 will plan to open. However, we have to raise and pay £45,000 to the contractor upon completeion. Its a golden opportunity to donate for yourself or on behalf of someone deceased as Sadaqah Jariyah.
We believe that these children deserve the quality that we desire for our own children. By contributing to this project you will help to empower future generations of orphans. Inshallah!
We would kindly request all brothers and sisters to support this project by donating generously.
