Why does IHH support orphaned children?

Children are the most innocent creation on earth, and children constitute the sector most affected by crises that emerge in various regions of the world. Unfortunately, the social policies introduced by states concerning orphans and deserted children fail to meet present needs. According to official figures, there are more than 200 million orphans in the world. However, these figures do not include the numbers of orphans in countries such as Afghanistan and China, and those in Middle-Eastern countries. According to estimations, this figure is around 400 million. The Prophet Muhammad, who revealed the reward of caring and protecting orphans with the hadith “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in paradise like this (holding his two fingers together)” is both an example, and encourages us when working with these orphans. With the awareness of this responsibility, we make every effort to care for hundreds of thousands of orphans living in various countries. We strive to ensure that orphans are always happy and live in a safe environment with the orphanages opened by IHH.
