BRIEF HISTORY

Named in memory of Hazrat Zayd (R.A.) who was adopted by the Holy Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.), `Friends of Zayd (R.A.)` is our first orphanage constructed in the village of Begampur in the Gazipur District. Construction work commenced during the year 2004 and the orphanage was officially opened in March 2005.

The orphans are looked after by staff, who are employed full time at the orphanage. All of the orphans are from such families where the mother is so poor that she cannot provide for her child, hence the need to place him in the orphanage. There are also 2 orphans who have lost both their parents.

This orphanage is being run under the supervision of our partner organisation IMPB and the total cost of construction which amounted to £16,000 was donated by one family of the UK who have also taken the responsibility of financing the annual running costs which comes to approx. £8,000.
