Orphan protection is a responsibility that given to us by Allah. In many ayahs and hadiths, the right of orphans and protection of orphans are stressed. Taking care of orphans which is the character and doctrine of the Prophet, constitutes one of the main issues for Muslims. The hadiths and practices of the Prophet towards orphans set an example for us Muslims in protecting the right of orphans, and we have developed a great sensitivity about orphan protection.
Today's civil wars, natural disasters, and inhumane living conditions have not only increased the number of orphans in the world but violated orphans' rights have also caused problems such as deterioration in the living conditions of orphans. However, the frequent abuse of orphans' rights has revealed the necessity to carefully consider the issue of orphan protection and to diversify and increase the activities for orphans.
According to the data provided by UNICEF, there are at least 150 million in the world.
What Are We Doing About Orphan Protection?
We carry out activities in order to protect orphans and to ensure the rights of orphans are respected. As Beşir Association, we carry out activities that will facilitate the lives of orphans, provide them with material and moral support, and raise awareness in the society about orphan protection.
With the Orphan Protectorate project that we have implemented, we offer our donors the opportunity to supply the needs of an orphan up to the age of twelve, provided that they continue to make regular cash donations on a monthly basis.
In addition, we can also support our projects for orphans and orphan ownership by donating a desired amount to the Orphan Support Repository that we have created.
