As soon as you enters the house of the family in Al-Askari Quarter, you will notice that all the furniture is broken or almost broken. The widow has sworn repeatedly that she collected all the furniture from the garbage, even the mats we were sitting on it and the fan suspended in the ceiling, explained that she did not steal and did not ask anyone, but collected these things after their owners throw them.
You sit down a little to find a blind old woman who asks urgently: “Did (Sh.) come back? After she was answered with “Yes”, she kissed her finger and put it on her forehead and thanked God.. You will be curious and ask on the reason of her urgency. She answers that she is afraid that the widow of her son will not come back from the collected of “Cola” cans,, who will remain for her and the three orphans!!
(Sh.( prays every morning and then goes out to collect the cans. She complains of flank pain when she picks up cans and metal wires from waste and for being without water for long periods of time, but she can’t see a doctor because of her poverty.
She collects the cans and wires in the “semi-house” that built by a donor. It is without doors and without water and builds from “block”, thus it makes them freezing in winter and suffers from warm in summer so that the utmost wishes of the old woman are getting a refrigerator to drink cold water.
All the three orphans attend the school but the house is not suitable even to raise the chickens!!
Orphan Charity Foundation pays a monthly salary to the family as well as thousands of registered orphans’ families in the database, but what the family needs is more than what the Foundation can provide to them and other registered families and now they need any initiative to help them live in dignity.
Allah said: “and in their wealth was a share for whosoever asked and for whosoever was prevented” and also said: “So spend of that with which We have provided you before death comes upon any of you and he then says: ‘O my Lord, if only You would defer me to a near term, so that I could give in charity and be among the good doers.’
