Our Mission

Despite Kafala being strongly encouraged in Islam there have been a misleading CULTURAL perception about its true meaning, practice, and significance. As a result, our innocent children have been under institutionalized care of orphanages rather than being granted a warm family life and home. We created this page to restore back the authentic meaning of Kafala in Islam (to support all their worldly interests) that was taught by our beloved prophet (peace be upon him).

About Rasha Mekky

Rasha adopted her child, Mo­stafa, when he was only four days old and she was 45. At that time, she used to hear negative comments about adoption, “people are used to defaming the adopted child but I never had this view,” says Rasha. Due to the lack of awareness on adoption in Egypt, Rasha believes that many people do not know that they can actually adopt chil­dren and get them to live along with them “I personally did not know anything about adoption in Egypt until I was 44 or some­thing,” she adds stating that this was one of the motives behind creating her Facebook page, “An adoption story in Egypt”.

The first reason which prompted her to create the page was the feeling Rasha had about wasting so much time trying to give birth to a biological child and not considering adoption as an op­tion. “If I knew that adoption existed in Egypt earlier, I might have had five or six children by now,” she says with passion. Not only that, Rasha found that people were hiding it, and would not share their adoption stories.

Breastfeeding in Islam

Breastfeeding in Islam

It is possible to establish milk production for a kafala baby, even if you have never been pregnant or given birth before. Breastfeeding creates a “mahram” relationship between you and the child. To breastfeed or not to breastfeed, it is YOUR personal decision at the end of the day!
