Help Ease the Suffering of the Needy Orphans   :)


As the number of orphans around the world is growing at an alarming rate, their needs for basic sustenance become that much more critical.

There are approximately 6.5 million orphans in Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone and the Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria just to name a few, and their prospects for a bright future are dim. 

LIFE for Relief and Development has been providing sponsorship for orphans in these countries, for the past several years. Through LIFE's Orphan Sponsorship Program, donors can pay for the care of an orphaned child in Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, or Palestinian refugee camps (in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria).

LIFE's Orphan Sponsorship Program provides food, clothing, educational assistance, and health care to nearly 2,000 orphans who are victims of poverty and/or war.

For just $50 a month, you can give orphaned children hope by caring for their basic needs.  This would help them focus on their best chance at a brighter future--their education.  It may not seem like a lot of money, but the sponsorship of $50 a month that you provide can be life-changing, and even life-saving.

As your support will help ease the hardships of the orphaned child and bring a smile to the child's face, you will also get the heavenly reward for your generous support, as the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, "I and the sponsor of an orphan are like this in Paradise (putting his index and middle fingers together)." In addition, during this special blessed month of Ramadan, you will receive even a greater reward for your generosity.

So take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to positively impact the lives of orphaned children.

Life for Relief and Development Invites You to Join United We Serve   :)

Assalamu alaykum! My name is Dr. Mujahid Al-Fayadh, CEO and President of Life for Relief and Development. You are invited to join a nationwide movement to enrich our country.

This summer President Obama announced an initiative, United We Serve , calling on all Americans to participate in out nation’s recovery and renewal by serving our communities. From June 22 to September 11th, Americans are called to address community needs in education, health, energy and the environment, and community renewal.

United We Serve is an opportunity for every Muslim American to be part of a nationwide movement to bring about positive change. To facilitate this, a group of Muslim Americans initiated a national campaign, United We Serve: Muslim Americans Answer the Call, to encourage and empower every Muslim American to answer the call to service. In addition to answering President’s Obama’s important call to help rebuild our communities, “Answer the Call” means responding to the millions of Americans in need, especially in the midst of the economic crisis. Most importantly, it refers to answering Allah’s call to serve humanity to confirm faith with good works. As the Holy Qur’an teaches us:  

                                    “Race one another in good works.”  (The Holy Qur’an 5:48)

Our goal for the summer, which ends on September 11th is 1000 service projects nationally at least 250 done in cooperation with another faith community. We plan to compile these accomplishments in a report to the President and the public.

You are receiving this message because you are a national leader in community service. We want to make sure your good work is counted and recognized as part of the United We Serve: Muslim Americans Answer the Call Campaign. For more information about the campaign, please visit and If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at
