Ihsan Foundation Zakat Appeal 1433 | 2012
We are pleased to announce by the grace of the All-Merciful £6535.00 was raised in Zakat and Sadaqah funds for the Ihsan Foundation. We feel this is a fantastic effort on everyones behalf, and pray Allah accepts these efforts in the blessed month of Ramadan.
Shaykh Faiz has been there personally, and given his first-hand experience of the dire situation in Sierra Leone we know what a difference this will make to them. May Allah gaze upon one and all with a gaze of kindness, amin.
Orphan Sponsorship Scheme
The Prophet (s) said, 'The sponsor of an orphan and I are like this in Paradise.' He then joined his middle & index finger.
Following the end of the rebel war 10,000 were orphaned in Sierra Leone. The Ihsan Foundation launched the One-to-One orphan sponsorship program in 2004 and support orphans across West Africa. We are now working in partnership with Ihsan to get UK sponsors to sponsor an orphan in West Africa. For just £20 per month you can sponsor an orphan. All sponsors will receive details of the sponsored orphan, a photograph.
To date our community has sponsored 17 orphans, exluding the money sent towards the general orphan benefit fund.
