We believe that every child deserves to have all their care needs met. However, unfortunately many orphaned children in poverty are often left in desperate circumstances. Of course ensuring that they survive their tough circumstances is our priority but, beyond that, we are dedicated to providing them with an opportunity to thrive. You too can choose to contribute towards a system that has allowed us to provide dignified, effective and comprehensive care for years.
At Al-Ayn, we are committed to ensuring that every orphaned child living in poverty has access to the tools and opportunities they need to overcome their difficult experiences. We believe that when a child fulfils their potential, their own future is transformed as well as their families’, their communities’, and society’s at large.
Al-Ayn (UK) has been working since 2013, in collaboration with Al-Ayn (Iraq) to serve over 60,000 orphaned children in poverty from birth and throughout their childhood as well as during their transition into adulthood.
Due to decades of war and instability, exasperated by the global crisis, medical care in Iraq is often inaccessible to orphaned children in poverty. That is why, Al-Ayn provides all children and their guardians with access to free medical care, including scans, operations where needed and free medication.Find Out More Donate
We believe that vocational training of this kind provides incredible added value for the orphaned children under our care. In the future, it will enable up to thousands of children to get all the help they need to help themselves and hopefully one day soon stand on their own two feet – for themselves and for their families.Find Out More Donate
Did you know? Many children we met across Iraq were suffering most with their lack of access to comprehensive education! Sadly, local schools were not providing the necessary support. Class sizes were sometimes 60 students and the nearest school could be miles away. Travel costs were so expensive, mothers often borrowed in order to cover these expenses.Find Out More Donate
Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation has a direct ijaza (written permission) from Al-Sayyed Ali Al-Sistani to receive religious dues (Khums) to spend on orphaned children. The permission includes both parts of Khums (Sahm Al-Imam and Sahm Al-Sada), and the exact amount of your Khums donation will go towards supporting orphaned children.Find Out More Donate
