Tragedy struck an orphaned family of eight this month when the eldest son was brutally murdered in the small village of Daqoq, in Kirkuk. Ibrahim Farooq was on his way to school on the morning of when he was shot dead. Ibrahim had been part of our orphan sponsorship programme for the past five years and was due to start University shortly. Noor Orphans Fund helped build a house for the family five years ago and two of Ibrahim’s siblings are still being sponsored by our generous donors. Ibrahim had recently transferred over to Noor Education Fund so that we could continue to support him through Higher Education in order for him to provide for his family and make their future much brighter.
Ibrahim’s mother and siblings have been left devastated by this senseless heartbreak.
“…if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” (Al Quran 5:32)Leave a reply →
