Helping orphans – Having lost one or both parents and with no family, orphans are vulnerable to all kinds of risks. Protecting them is one of the biggest social problems that today’s societies must overcome.
Without a doubt, every child needs affection. Furthermore, children should be supported in the areas of nutrition, medical care, housing and education. These basic rights are essentially the minimum requirement for child safety.
We prepare orphaned children in orphanages for the future
Orphanages are undoubtedly protected places where orphans are taken in under the roof of compassion and prepared for the future. At WEFA, we open orphanages in different regions of the world to help orphans. We offer orphans protection and educational support. In addition, we organize cultural and artistic activities in these unique institutions and place special emphasis on making a positive contribution to the personal development of children.

There are orphanages in Bangladesh, Togo, Somalia, Burkina Faso, Mongolia and Pakistan. In addition, we organize cultural and artistic activities in these unique institutions and place special emphasis on making a positive contribution to the personal development of children.
WEFA facilitates active support of orphans
At WEFA, we have started building a new orphanage in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. The construction of the orphanage named “İlyas Zeyd” has commenced with an aim to provide the basic protection and needs of orphans. Ilyas Zeyd will be a warm home for children who have lost their parents for various reasons. Initially, 60 orphans will be hosted in the orphanage that has a capacity to accomodate 120 orphans. The orphanage, which will be built on two floors, will also include a dining room, a kitchen and a cellar. One room will be designed as a library. In addition, books and educational sets that have a positive effect on the development of children will be included in this library.
WEFA volunteer Ayşe Bulut also provides financial support for the project, which is greatly assisted by the House of Praise and WEFA Netherlands.
Abdulrahman Köylüoğlu, General Manager of WEFA, who is also founder of the civil initiative “House of Praise”, expresses his feelings as follows:
“Of course we will make many orphans happy with this orphanage. But by helping others, we are doing ourselves a favour. We become more aware of what we have and are more grateful for everything. Since we’re fortunate enough to easily achieve many things in our lives, we do not know exactly how lucky we are. We use every available resources to help orphans.”
At WEFA, we set out to build a dormitory for homeless children in Ouagadougou. The dormitory will be a safe place of science for street children who try to study as hafiz by begging. On the other hand, the dormitory, which has a capacity of 60 people, will also include a kitchen, dining hall, terrace, masjid, activity area, and study room.
