Ummah Academies to Educate OrphansThere are a lot of kids who lost their one or two parents in many different situations and in countries like Pakistan where there is no governmental support for the orphans, they have to go door to door for their daily basis needs. Many have to quit education and start earning for their family and to make both ends meet.
