Noreens Hike for Orphans
Why am I doing a hike?
The below verses of the Quran are a beautiful reason as to why I am trying to fundraise for orphans and climb mountain Snowden.
Why Help Orphans?
’And they give food, in spite of love for it, to the needy, the orphan, and the captive. (Saying), “We feed you only for the countenance of Allah. We don’t want from you either reward or gratitude. Indeed, we fear from our Lord a Day austere and distressful”’. (The Noble Qur’an, 76:8-10)
An estimated 140 million children are classified as orphans and 15.1 million have lost both parents.
The evidence clearly shows that the vast majority of orphans are living with a surviving parent or grandparent or other family members.
The harsh reality is there are millions of orphans in the world who have NO ONE to care, love, guide or support them. They are alone.
Crisis Aid is trying to make a difference. Help us to give an orphan the childhood he or she deserves.
No amount is too small as a donation and our reward is with Allah alone for whatever efforts we make to help others.
Please donate and help me reach my target and help 2 orphans for a year.
Lets not forget that our beloved Prophet (pbuh) was also an orphan.
