Aliya*, 6, is an orphan. She cries every night for her parents, who were killed in a car crash, with her baby brother.
Saad*, 8, is also an orphan. He never knew his parents or any life outside the orphanage.
Although they have the best comforts they can and orphanage, they feel forsaken, angry and forlorn, Simply because they long for a family of their own. They want to feel special.
When they received their personal box of khajoor this Ramadan, it moved them deeply. There is plenty of khajoor for everyone in the orphanage, but this was different. This was their own box, not to be touched by anyone but themselves. It made them feel tempered, even special. What a great feeling!
Thank you for your support and making this happen. Your generosity brings a joy that perhaps you even can't imagine.
