Sharjah Charity International (SCI) has revealed that the number of orphans it has sponsored for the first half of 2022 has reached 27,055.
SCI allocated AED 31.6 million to sponsor the orphans in more than 21 countries around the world, in addition to the UAE, in cooperation with the Sharjah Social Services Department.
Mohammed Rashid bin Bayat, Vice Chairman of the Board of SCI, said that caring for orphans "is one of Islam's noblest achievements because it rewards the orphan for the warmth and affection he received from his father."
He added that H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, had a strong interest in seeing that the organisation's directives were translated accurately to create a unique mechanism for sponsorship programmes.
