Ummah Children Academy

    'The best house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are well treated. The worst house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are ill treated. I and the guardian of the orphan will be in the Garden like that,' indicating his two fingers.' [al-Bukhari]

    In 2001, in response to continuing conflict in Afghanistan and the ensuing refugee crisis, Ummah Welfare Trust realised that many orphans of this Ummah were in great danger. Their lives and their iman was at stake.

    Action was required. In 2003, UWT purchased five acres of land in the district of Nowshera, Pakistan, for £30,000. The aim was to create the Ummah Children Academy, an institute, whose sole aim was to provide free shelter, food, medical treatment and the best education to suffering orphans.

    Alhamdulillah today, because of the concern of a few Muslims in the UK, the Ummah Children Academy stands completed as a centre of excellence and hope.

    The Academy caters for over 700 orphans from Pakistan and Kashmir. Our orphan programme attends to every aspect of their welfare.

    This includes providing a high quality education, medical treatment, support for the family or guardian, dietary needs, and clothing and transport.

    In order to satisfy you that the children you sponsor are being raised as if they were your own, Ummah Welfare Trust provide regular feedback so that you can follow their individual progress.

    'The dream we once had, we couldn't imagine that one day it would be come real like this. Today it's like we are sitting in the Jannah of this world.' - Shaykh Muhammad Idrees, UWT Trustee
