Al-Imdaad FoundationAL-IMDAAD FOUNDATION

All children are entitled to basic rights relating to health, education, nutrition and protection. Yet each year, millions are subjected to abuse and even more are orphaned due to war, famine, HIV/Aids, poverty and natural disasters. Recognising the importance of children’s well being, the Al-Imdaad Foundation has launched various programmes to improve the quality of life of orphans. We build and fund orphanages and provide sponsorships and bursaries to thousands of orphans to secure their education, as well as basic necessities such as clothing, food and medical care.
