Q. What will I receive as a sponsor?
A. Throughout your time as a sponsor, we’ll continue to send you regular updates on the progress of your sponsored child.
Q. How long is the Hifz sponsorship programme?
A. Hifz sponsorship is a three to six-year programme, depending on individuals memorising ability. After which, the child will be in a much better position to seek employment or to teach others.
Q. How can I send a gift to my sponsored child?
A. Call our donation line on 0115 911 7222 and tell us that you would like to send a gift to your sponsored child. You will need to provide the childs ID and their country. This information can be found on your sponsorship pack, but if you can’t find the details, a member of our team can help.
Q. Can I visit them myself?
A. Due to safeguarding reasons, we are unable to arrange visits or give out any personal information, including the address or telephone number of your sponsored child.
Q. Can I contact the sponsored child?
A. Yes, you can via a written letter, email or greeting card. You should email a copy of the letter or card as an attachment to email@example.com. We will ensure that your correspondence reaches them. However, we cannot always guarantee a reply as we leave the choice to write back with the child.
Q. Can I visit my sponsored child?
A. Supervised visits may be organised after gaining agreement from the Muslim Hands office, the child and their guardian. Visits cannot be made directly to the orphan’s home in line with our safeguarding Policy, so the meeting will be held in the local MH office. For safety purposes, we will not give out any personal information, such as the child’s address or telephone number.
You would be responsible for your own travel arrangements, providing an up-to-date DBS and paying for the child and their guardian’s travel costs and food costs (if they have to travel a long distance). All arrangements will be made through Muslim Hands and on your visit, you will be chaperoned by a member of staff.
If you would like to visit your child, please contact us three months prior to your visit either by emailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling on 0115 911 7222. You will need to provide dates on when you intend on visiting.
