As part of its humanitarian activities, Al-Anwar Al-Najafyia Foundation for Culture and Development took the initiative to distribute red meat bags to orphans registered in the department in accordance with the directives of the Foundation’s Secretary General which stresses on the importance of following up and inspecting the families of orphans in light of the economic crisis that the country is going through.
Head of the orphans department in the foundation pointed out that the distribution of meat bags covered more than (60) families of orphans at the headquarters of the orphans department as part of the initiatives undertaken by the well-off people to help orphan families.
He added that these activities are of different kinds which are intended to orphans, where the staff delivers them to the orphans' houses and meet with the families who in turn thanked the foundation for such help.
On the auspicious occasion of the Birth Anniversary of the Greatest Prophet (PBUH&HF), Aytamuna Office in Karabala has sponsored group visit for orphans to the holy Shrines of Imam Hussain and Hazrat Abbas (PBUT) and at the same time distributed financial gifts to them.
Head of the department, Ali Hanoon stated that the foundation carried out a special program for orphans this year on this occasion, where 250 orphans were covered in this activity.
Hanoon affirmed that the Holy Prophet, the Prophet of Mercy and Humanity, Muhammad (PBUH&HF) advised us to take care of and sponsor orphans, so in this blessed occasion we must revive and make the orphans feel its importance and the great blessing that Allah Almighty bestowed upon us by sending us His Prophet to bring people out of darkness into light and from injustice to mercy.
In addition, he indicated that the department sponsored many humanitarian projects throughout the previous phase, and was keen on being close to the families of orphans, getting to know their living conditions and requirements, and striving to secure them.
Finally he added that the secretary general, Sheikh Ali, stated to them the instructions of His Eminence the Grand Ayatollah Sheikh Basheer (may Allah prolong his life) which are to take care of orphans and their families, and make them feel love, peace and safety.
Aytanuba Department distributed meat bags to orphans through the well-off people so as to secure sufficient food for hundreds of families on a monthly basis.
Head of the department stated that this distribution was on the occasion of the Death Anniversary of the Prophet (PBUH&HF) and of Imam Raza (PBUH).
He added that some well-off people donated to buy goats and slaughter them then distribute the meat to orphans families. We pray to Allah to protect such people who help their community and get rewards at the same time.
