SKT Welfare’s Orphan Care appeal is a charity that changes lives. Through our programmes in Turkey and Palestine, we’re making sure that vulnerable orphans are getting the love and care they need for happy childhoods and brighter futures.
The welfare of these children is always at the core of everything we do through our Orphan Care appeal, ensuring every child we help grows up happy, healthy, and well cared for. When you vow to care for an orphan with us, your support helps to provide a child with all they need to flourish and grow such as healthcare, a quality education, food, clothing, counseling services, and a warm, loving home.
Without a mother or father to care for them, these children have become susceptible to abuse, neglect, and many forms of exploitation. Many orphans are unfortunately exposed to extreme violence, as well as psychological and emotional distress after losing one or both of their parents.
As Muslims, it is our responsibility to look after these vulnerable children and provide them with a better quality of life. Our Orphan Care appeal maintains a carefully developed approach to supporting orphans through every step of their growth and helping them overcome the hardships of their past.
In Turkey, orphans from Shaam live in our Springs of Hope Family Centre in Rehyanli. Many of these children are living with their siblings and their mothers, but have lost their fathers in the conflict. We strive to keep families together to ensure children grow up with love, familiarity and stability. Children with no family live in the Family Centre with everything they need and supported by our expert, trained and qualified staff.
In Palestine, we provide support to orphan families in the form of monetary assistance and school materials. We ensure families receive the support they need to send their children to school, and to provide good food, clothing and shelter.
Your donation will be used as a form of collective support for the children. We do not operate an individual sponsorship model and seek to continuously improve the support for the children we protect and care for.
Safeguarding - The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Every one of you is a Protector and Guardian for those who are placed under your care.” [Bukhari] The custodianship (amanah) is further emphasised with the command of not betraying the trust. Allah (SWT) says: “Betray not knowingly your amanah (things entrusted to you).” (Qur’an 8:27)
I’m raising funds for SKT Welfare because I really care about the great work they’re doing to alleviate poverty and suffering around the globe.
SKT work with marginalised and vulnerable communities including with orphans and widows to help them build better futures. With their 100% donation policy, you can rest assured that every penny of your donation will go directly to those who need it most.
