Whether it’s your very first time or you’re a frequent zawar of Imam Hussain a.s. making that special walk to Karbala this Arbaeen, why not make it a sponsored walk and help raise money for the Noor Centre for Educational Excellence (NCEE) – helping orphans gain quality education.
Orphans in Iraq are especially at risk of facing poverty throughout their entire lives. Girls either don’t go to school at all, or leave at the tender age of nine. Boys don’t usually get much more – often leaving at the age of 11 to find a job to support their families. The NCEE will promote effective learning with a focus on preparing students for life in a competitive and globalised world.
As you walk towards Karbala this year, the stories of Sukayna, Ruqaya and Ali Asgher a.s. will be with you every step of the way. The orphans of Karbala today live in the same land as the children of Imam Hussain a.s. You can help as many of them, and those throughout Iraq, by making your walk a sponsored one and raise money for their access to receive quality education. Please give these orphans a chance to have a better life.
