The Messenger of Allah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said:

“I and the one who looks after an orphan will be like this in Paradise,” showing his middle and index fingers and separating them.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

Millions of children globally struggle to survive and many become orphans as a result of disasters, war or disease. At young tender ages they become vulnerable, both physically and mentally and the reality of hunger and having no shelter or clothes becomes the norm. Thoughts of where their next meal will come from, how will they treat themselves if they become sick or where will they sleep becomes a mental battle that leads to destroyed futures for these children.
