DECADES OF CONFLICT HAVE CREATED AN ESTIMATED 600,000 ORPHANS AND 40,000 WIDOWS IN INDIAN-ADMINISTERED KASHMIR - NUMBERS WHICH ARE STILL GROWING 

These poor women and children have no idea where their husbands and fathers are, whether they are even still alive and if they have been trying to come home for all these years.

Conflict has had an indescribable impact on their lives - most are extremely poor and struggle to survive on a daily basis. Tens of thousands of single mothers work back-breaking days just to feed and clothe their children.

HOW WE ARE HELPING

Alhamdulillah UK Islamic Mission is helping these vulnerable families. Our Livelihood Programmes help widows to produce a sustainable income to stand on their own feet. Additionally, our programmes help to provide widows with more reasonable working hours so they can spend time raising their children and provide them with much-needed love and support.

Our Orphan Sponsorship Programme goes above and beyond to provide less fortunate children with food, healthcare, education, shelter and clothing. This is life-sustaining support that ensures happy, balanced children who otherwise would sadly go without.

When you choose to sponsor an orphan, you can provide a child with shelter, essential food, healthcare, clothes, and most importantly, a consistent education

THE FUTURE IN KASHMIR

Although we have already helped many people, there are countless more to reach. The widows and orphans of Kashmir have suffered in near-silence for decades - but no longer. With the support of our donors, we can provide families with food packs that will provide essentials to last a month and sewing machines for widows to pick themselves up and generate an income.

Additionally, you can choose to sponsor an orphan, either for a flat donation or a regular monthly donation.
