Islamic Help looks after more than 800 orphans in the Middle East as part our orphan sponsorship programme. That number is growing daily.

As well as providing food, water, education, medical care and welfare for their daily needs, we have launched a very special programme – sending Palestinian orphans on a blessed journey to Mecca to perform Umrah.

In early 2015, we took our first party of Palestinian orphans from Jordan to Mecca. It was the first time they had travelled to another country.

The journey was an experience of emotion and tears, with the youngsters describing a strengthening and renewal of faith, and excitement and awe as they entered Haram Shareef and performed Tawaf around the Ka’aba.

The group, accompanied by Islamic Help staff from the UK, also went to Medina Shareef to pray in Masjidun Nabi, the mosque of our blessed Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him).

In January 2016, our generous supporters allowed us to take more than 650 Palestinian orphans on Umrah. You can read more about that trip here.

These blessed journeys, in 2015 and 2016, were the realisation of a dream for their guardians and remaining parents. Already struggling against adversity, they could never have imagined their offspring and wards making such a journey to the heart of Islam.

To get a feeling of the joy and emotion of their journeys, please watch the videos. The 2016 documentary is above and the video below is a full 25 minute documentary of the 2015 Umrah.
