QC's sponsorship enabled the orphans to continue their higher education and to excel. One of the orphans won a universal competition for the Holy Quran.
The total number of orphans QC sponsored in Bosnia and Herzegovina is 2,500, most of which are orphans. QC also sponsors families, students, and Quran teachers. For the past 10 years, QC has spent more than 178,000,000 QR on sponsorship projects.
As part of its social care initiatives for the vulnerable groups, sponsoring orphans comes as a contribution to protecting childhood and saving it from going astray. It also helps save the dignity of needy families especially in times of disasters and wars.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, orphans receive the biggest share of sponsorship. The number of sponsored orphans is 2,150 children across the different villages and towns of Bosnia. Last year, the total financial sponsorship allocated for the orphans reached around 5,000,000 QR.
Since 1994, QC has sponsored 8,500 orphans. Some of them graduated from college and are working either as employees or craftsmen.
QC's sponsorship programs are distinguished with offering comprehensive care in the different fields of education, health and entertainment. In addition, they offer financial sponsorships on a monthly basis. The programs include holding events for the orphans which include multiple activities such as undertaking medical tests, getting tutors, going on trips, camping, taking part in competitions, receiving educational and training courses and attending workshops.
During 2015, QC held for its sponsored orphans several entertaining activities through which it distributed some awards to encourage them. A delegation from QC also distributed winter clothes to the orphans before the end of 2015.
Because of the sponsorships QC offers, a lot of orphans received education whether academic or occupational. It was considered a gate to ensure a dignified life for them and those they are going to take care of when they are older. Many of the students excelled in some fields. To mention a few, one of the sponsored orphans from Bosnia was awarded first in a universal competition which was held in Jeddah in 2015. One of the orphans who passed the sponsorship age is now an Imam and a preacher, and currently works at the orphans' division at QC's office in Bosnia.
QC thanked Qatar's philanthropists for sponsoring the orphans hoping such work would be a path to Jannah (Heaven), and that they and their children would be blessed for their good work.
QC's field office in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia, was first established in 1994 so that QC would be able to check upon the people it sponsors and to supervise its other projects. QC spent more than 202,000,000 QR on the social care projects, especially sponsorships of orphans, families and students. QC also built houses, schools, clinics; and implemented water projects.Such work contributed to the reconstruction of Bosnia and return of the displaced and refugees who were affected by the war that hit their country in the 90s.
QC sponsors more than 92,000 orphans around the world through 'Rofaqa' initiative which was inaugurated in December 2013. It focuses on orphan children around the world and aims at offering comprehensive sponsorship for children and orphans; one that includes social, educational, health and psychological aspects.
