Give a donation to your sponsored child

As part of our Orphans Sponsorship Programme, you have the option to provide an additional cash gift to your sponsored child, as and when you wish.

This cash gift would be in addition to your monthly sponsorship cost of £59. 

A gift to your sponsored orphan

You can enter the amount you would like to give as a one-off cash gift to an orphan you sponsor.

How much do you want to gift?

Orphan ID(s)

Enter the ID of the orphan you are sponsoring (you will find this on your orphan pack and updates). If you sponsor more than one orphan and would like to make multiple gifts, you can enter multiple IDs here, separating each with a comma and we will split the amount above equally between them. Alternatively you can make each gift in a separate transaction if you would like to gift different amounts

⚠️ Nothing to donate - please add at least one entry!

Why donate a cash gift to your sponsored child? 

Islamic Relief have been running the Orphans Sponsorship Programme for over three decades. Our programme is well-established, and we have a wealth of knowledge and experience which helps us support Orphans and their families in the best way possible. 

However, some may choose to provide an additional cash gift every month if you are paying via direct debit, in order to go the extra mile in caring for your sponsored child, for example, to help the child or their family to save money for the future. 

It’s also a nice idea to provide a cash gift to your sponsored child during special occasions, such as Eid or any time in the year. 

You can make a online donation above or give us a call on 020 7593 3232. Please have your Orphans ID number to hand. 

Please note that if the orphans ID is incorrect, we will attempt to contact the donor, and if the contact details are missing or incorrect, then we will apply funds to the General Orphans Fund as we will have no choice or means of communication otherwise.

Rewards for giving gifts and caring for Orphans in Islam 

Helping to care for orphans and vulnerable children is a duty for Muslims. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) emphasised the status of orphans, and the importance of fulfilling their needs. 

Children are a gift from Allah, and a trust, or Amanah – to be cared for and nurtured in the best possible way.

Whoever caresses the head of an orphan (in affection), solely for the sake of Allah, a good deed will be written to his account for every hair over which he passed his hand, and whoever treated an orphan (boy or girl) with goodness and kindness, he and I will be close to each-other in Heaven as these two fingers.

Hadith | Sahih al-Bukhari

It is also a Sunnah to give gifts, as this helps to increase love between the Muslim Ummah, purify our hearts and allows us to become more generous.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

Give each other gifts and you will love each other.

Hadith | Muslim
