Ramadan 2019 Report No.4: Orphan and Special Needs Children Ramadan Gift 

 

So far within the first twenty days of Ramadan 2019, EAP has already managed to reach 8,900 needy families across Palestine. Recently, they have also distributed 1,500 Ramadan gifts in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to:

  • 1,000 Orphans
  • 500 Disabled/ Special Needs

The gifts distributed are specifically for the orphans and special needs children to be used solely for their own benefit. During the year, sponsorship covers the orphan’s tuition fees, medical expenses, school meals, clean water and other necessities. But the Ramadan Orphan Gift is a special gift provided exclusively during the holy month of Ramadan to make the orphans happy.

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “I and the one who sponsors an orphan will be in Paradise like these two” – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them apart.

 

Thousands of Palestinian children have lost a father, and in many cases their mother too and since household income is low and education is expensive, our orphan students are in dire need of your support. Ramadan is the month of giving and reaching out. Whoever sponsors an orphan and helps him will be with our Prophet in Paradise.

Similarly, EAP strives to restore confidence and give hope to our Special Needs Students as we believe that everyone has the right to equal access of education and for this reason we focus on providing sponsorships designed to ease the educational path for those with disabilities. 

Through this project, EAP aims to support orphans and special needs students in their educational endeavors so they are thriving and never disenfranchised. Do not miss this opportunity, especially during this holy month and donate now to bring a smile to their face today!
