Mikail, 4, has never known his parents. All he has known is life in the orphanage where he has plenty of brothers and sisters, but no one is special, all equal. Sometimes, he longs to feel special. Sleeping in a dormitory of 25 similarly aged boys, the emphasis is usually on group activities, loving one another, and not trying to stand out too much.
When he received his personal box of khajoor this Ramadan, it moved him deeply. There is plenty of khajoor for everyone in the orphanage, but this was different. This was his own box, not to be touched by anyone but himself, and even though it was meant for one per day, it was still his own box to do with as he liked. That made him feel 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.
