They ask you, [O Muhammad], what they should spend (in charity). Say, "Whatever you spend of good is [to be] for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good -indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.
(Quran, al-Baqarah: 215)
Our purpose is simply to raise awareness and funds for the state of orphans living lives of destitution and hardship. In today’s world, out of the 143 million children in developing nations, 1 in every 13 are orphaned. These children are often from countries ravaged by war, corruption, disease, and economic disparity. We feel it is our duty as Muslims to attempt to abolish the cruel cycle of poverty and abuse that continues in our world. All of the orphans sponsored under Orphan Sponsorship Program are through Islamic relief Canada. OSP has teamed with Islamic Relief to make sure we carry the highest degree of transparency on where your money is going and how it is spent. Islamic Relief collaborates with local organizations around the world to make sure orphaned children get their necessities regardless of race, color, and creed. The advantage of working with Islamic Relief is that they own and operate offices within the countries the orphans are located so regular monitoring is done to ensure that the orphans are receiving the full benefits of sponsorship.
University of Windsor's OSP has been very successful over the past 2 years alhamdulillah, first winning Charity Week Canada for the year 13-14, the year 14-15, & raising enough funds to sponsor more than 10 orphans. We look forward to the upcoming year and we are excited to work with dedicated and hardworking individuals who want to join in on the fight to eliminate poverty and suffering.
