Virtues of Sponsoring an Orphan

Sponsoring an orphan is one of the righteous deeds which Islam encourages us to do. Allah’s Messenger has promised a place next to him for the one who looks after an orphan.

As he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“I and the one who sponsors an orphan will be in Paradise like these two” – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them apart.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Sponsor an Orphan in Pakistan

According to a recent report by UNICEF, it is estimated that there are over 5 million orphan children in Pakistan.

In a country where a quarter of its population lives below the poverty line, it becomes very tough for an orphan to survive. It is normally very tough for the oldest male sibling because he has to go out to find food for his family whilst his mother is looking after his siblings.

Many orphans face abuse by their employers who in first place don’t pay them enough anyway. And if anyone falls ill in the family the calamity becomes even bigger as they don’t have enough money to feed themselves, never mind buy medication.
