Our Orphan Care


Transform the life of a vulnerable young orphan when you donate with UK Islamic Mission.


Neglect. Hunger. Abuse. Trauma. These are some of the daily hardships in the lives of the worlds 153 million orphan children.


Now UKIM is building another orphanage for the children in Muree (Pakistan) with the intention of helping another 700 orphans.


£416 per month could build a room/classroom for orphans


UKIM has joined with a local charity in Pakistan and successfully constructed a high-tech and well-equipped orphanage in Attock, which is now home to 180 orphan children.

Bring hope, happiness and education to those who need support most

There are 153 million orphans around the world according to the UNICEF. These children are the most vulnerable and innocent members of our society and whilst some orphans live with relatives or family friends, many are abandoned on the streets.

Though our own children are lucky enough to grow up in a safe, loving and supportive environment, orphans find life a constant battle. Many of these young children have no one to care for them and spend their days struggling to survive, whether that be looking for a meal or safe shelter for the night. They are often malnourished and live in highly dangerous conditions, without education and occasionally even having to care for younger siblings. These children are vulnerable, but we can make a difference.

The Orphans Need Our Help

Every child has the right to a carefree childhood full of fun, laughter and love, though many orphans have little or none of this. No human being should live in constant worry and fear, especially not children. We don’t need to be parents to understand that children should feel cared for and valued.

UK Islamic Mission is a leading charity in helping orphans around the world. We believe that every child has the right to a fulfilling childhood and we strive to help the young people who are struggling most. We aim to provide safety and comfort for orphans around the globe, giving them access to proper education and allowing them to grow in a caring and comfortable environment.

We need your help to make our vision a reality and bring hope to the most vulnerable people in the world. Our orphan charity work sees us helping disadvantaged children both here in the UK and worldwide, including those who identify with Islam or not.

The Benefits of Sponsoring an Orphan in Islam

In Islam, it is compulsory for people who are in fortunate positions to be kind and generous to the orphans and the needy.

Prophet Muhammed, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself, will be together like this,” and he held his two fingers together (Sahih Bukhari, 5304).

By supporting the orphans, we are fulfilling our faith and securing ease in this life and in the Hereafter.
