Ms. Fatma Ala’aziqi contacted the officials at the Alber Society in Qunfudah, and sent a letter to the chairman of the Alber Society demonstrating the Preparatory Year Deanship students’ desire in materializing the call of the latitude Islamic shariah in terms of showing generosity towards orphans. For it is among the most rewarding deeds leading to the Heaven, and thus accompanying our prophet peace be upon him.   

Allah says: “ Therefore, treat not the orphan with harshness,”

The voluntary work is a human conduct practiced by the individual off his own accord, and it boosts communication with others and does away with the individualism. It also creates a feeling of self-satisfaction, and disciplines souls as it emanates from the heart and an internal desire for sacrifice and giving and a feeling of responsibility towards the needy. It involves preserving the environment, fostering the orphans and the poor and special needs and taking care of education and culture among others.   

Based on this, the idea of the students embarking on a series of voluntary work arose, and they started with the orphan care. They contacted the officials at the Alber Society in Qunfudah and got their approval. Then the students prepared the items to be delivered to those supervising these orphaned families by the Alber Society’s representative.
