Welcome to the Babylon Preparatory Center for Widows and Orphans!

مركز بابل لتأهيل الأرامل والأيتام!


October 27, 2016

As November approaches, we will be holding our annual fund raiser to benefit the orphans and widows in Iraq. 100% of the money donated and collected goes to the orphans and widows in Iraq without any middle man or overhead.

As you likely know, the need and desperation in Iraq and the surrounding areas has become astronomical. Families are leaving their homes in western and northern Iraq with just the clothes on their back in search of safety. The circumstances are so extreme, we have heard many stories of families attempting to make it to Europe, with many failing. Over 3.3 million Iraqis have been displaced from their homes as a result of violence, according to the United Nations.

Since the foundation of the Babylon Preparatory Center for Widows and Orphans in 2013, our goal has been to provide means for those who, without our help, would struggle to survive. However, with the recent turmoil overwhelming the nation and the unbelievable numbers of refugees flooding the city of Babel, we have had no choice other than shift our efforts to accommodate the refugees and help as much as we can. Our organization is small and the need is overwhelming, but we hope to make a difference in the lives of some of these families. We need support from the government, the United Nations, and anyone who can help. 

For the last year, we have put in our greatest effort and an incredible amount of work to make a difference in this growing conflict. Thus, we are continuing our efforts to collect as much aid as we can and to provide perhaps a meal or new clothing for these individuals whose lives have been changed forever. 

With help from donors, we have been sponsoring eight families, and we are planning to continue sponsoring those families. If you find it in your heart and want to help these families, please do so before Dec. 16, 2016. May Allah (SWT) bless those who are able to donate to those in need.

As you have likely heard on the news, the situation in Iraq has gotten worse. The Babylon Preparatory Center has taken in 7 refugee families and are looking for your help to sponsor these families. They have no source of income or support, and have been recommended to us as honorable people and in desperate need. 

The cost to "adopt a family" is $100 per month per family, and you can sponsor them for as many months as you would like. A brief description on each is below. We have obtained extensive information on them, including their ID numbers, ages of members, and addresses. All this information would be made available to sponsors. All your donations go directly to them, without a middle man or overhead. Please contact us as soon as possible.

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته - الحمد لله قام مركزنا يزياره بعض العوائل المحتاجه في بيوتهم في الشهر الماضي. وقد رأينا وسمعنا منهم مباشرة وقمنا بتوزيع المعونات الماليه مباشره. وجميع العوائل كانت شاكره لجميع المتبرعين ودعوا لهم بالأجر والثواب. ونرجوا من الله سبحانه وتعالى ان يستجيب دعاءهم لكي يستفيد منها المتبرعون في الدنيا والآخره. نسأل الله سبحانه وتعالى ان يعطي لجميع المتبرعين والذين يدعمون مركزنا. آمين يارب العالمين

We had the opportunity to visit the Babylon Preparatory Center to present our cash gift recently during our trip to Iraq last month. We were given the opportunity to see, visit, and hear from the families in their houses and deliver the gifts ourselves. The money we raised was divided and donated equally without any overhead. Some of the families I had met before, but each was very appreciative and thankful. Their facial expressions and subsequent happiness were indescribable and their dua'a for all of us was genuine. May Allah accept their dua'a so we all will receive benefits in this life and the life after. We ask Allah (SWT) to reward the people who donated for this cause and continue to support the center.

Happy New Year from the Babylon Preparatory Center! 

Alhamdulillah, we had very successful fund raising events at several Masajid. We have raised over $3,900 (plus $750 in pledges), which will be an incredible gift for the widows and orphans of the Babylon Preparatory Center this winter. We would like to give our thanks first to Allah (SWT), then to the Masajid and their board members. As always, may Allah (SWT) give all the people who donated for this worthy cause the rewards in this life and the life after.

السلام عليكم                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
قام مركزنا بتقديم المساعدات الانسانية في مدينة بابل ..الى العوائل النازحة من المناطق الساخنة بسبب الاعمال الارهابية والتهجير القسري للمدنين ..حيث تم توزيع المواد على أكثر من 30 عائلة

We are fortunate that the Babylon Preparatory Center has distributed food and goods to the refugees from the city of Mosul. Mosul is a city in which terrorists from ISIS forced civilians to leave their homes with only the clothes on their back. We are urgently requesting donations so that we can further be of aid to these families until they are able to return to their cities. Please send an email to babylonprepacademy@gmail.com to get information on how to donate. May Allah (swt) help all the Iraqis, the Syrians, the Palestinians, and everyone else suffering around the world.

Unfortunately, we will not be sharing photos for the safety of the families involved.

About us

THE Babylon Preparatory Center for Widows and Orphans was established in January of 2013 as a non-profit organization. Our goal is to raise money and gather resources to provide a safe, enriching environment for widows and orphans in Babylon, Iraq. We hope to train them in areas including computer skills, language enrichment, cooking, first aid, nursing, and education. However, recently our mission has shifted. Due to the influx of people in need, we are directing our efforts to support anyone escaping their homes looking for safety and shelter in this time of turmoil.

Our Work

Iraq is a nation that has faced dictators and wars over the past seventy years. As a result, families have been destroyed, and women and children left to fend for themselves. We hope to help them by providing an academy that will enrich them in all the areas necessary to compete and survive in a developing nation. We have already received gracious donations to rent a center that will serve as the Babylon Preparatory Center and we have already gathered volunteers who are willing to donate their time to help out at the center.

If you are willing to make a donation, please Contact us here.  Please note that your donation is tax deductible.

العراق هو شعب الذي واجه الطغاة والحروب على مدى السنوات السبعين الماضية. ونتيجة لذلك، تم تدمير الأسر، وترك النساء والأطفال لإعالة أنفسهم. نحن نأمل أن نساعدهم عن طريق توفير مركز من شأنه أن تأهلهم وتدربهم في جميع المجالات اللازمة للتنافس وكسب العيش الشريف والبقاء على قيد الحياة في دولة نامية مثل العراق. وبالفعل تلقينا تبرعات كريمة لاستئجارالمركز الذي سيكون ألأكاديمية التحضيرية بابل وكذلك وجدنا المتطوعين الذين هم على استعداد للتبرع بأوقاتهم لتعليم وتأهيل ألأيتام والأرامل وللمساعدة في المركز.

في هذه اللحظة، ونحن نتطلع بشكل خاص لجمع التبرعات لشراء أجهزة الحاسوب المحمولة للتدريب في مجال مهارات الحاسوب. إذا كنت على استعداد لتقديم تبرع، الرجاء الاتصال بنا هنا
