In the footprints of a refugee.

You can’t remember life without war, as you were born during it. Your father has since been killed and you can’t remember much about him. You watch your mother starve as she gives what little food she has to you and your siblings, its still not enough to satisfy your hunger. Education is a distant dream as most schools in the area have been destroyed by bombs. One day a kind person in a far off land steps forward and extends their hand to help you. Your life is transformed over night as you no longer have to worry about food, education, clothes and health care! Maybe your family can start to rebuild their lives now.

Sahl ibn Sa’d reported The Prophet ﷺ said “The one who cares for an orphan and Myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and He ﷺ held his two fingers together to illustrate. - Sahih al Bukhari
