The right to life is an innate human principle that depends largely on legislative intervention to ensure an individual’s life is not violated or harmed.

This is particularly true in the case of abandoned babies who have been left to fend for themselves.

This is why Wedad founded the Embracing program. We believe that one of the noblest and most virtuous acts a family can perform is to foster or “kafalah” and abandoned baby and treat them as their own son or daughter. 

Embracing is a program in which Wedad and its partners work with a family and ensure their heart and mind are aligned to give an abandoned baby a loving, affectionate and stable home. The long-term goal of the embracing program is to ensure the family can implement positive values, good habits and knowledge so that the child can grow up to be a productive, beneficial and independent member of society.

Every family applies to our Embracing program must meet conditions of the program, and we have other options outside of fostering that you can learn more about from “What We Do page”

We believe that is our duty to protect abandoned babies, wherever they are, and to find them qualified and loving foster families. We believe that babies of all nations, races and religions should be a part of loving and supportive family.
