Hello .. anyone know of any orphanages in Algeria and have a way to contact them? Are they private (run independently) or run by the government? Any information would be appreciated. I couldn't find much on Google.

Well after doing further research back in the days. I found out that both private and public orphanages are heavily funded by the government. If there is a case where mismanagement of funds takes place, there is not much you can do about that because the whole country runs that way.

The best way to do Kheir (a good deed) in Algeria, is to go down yourself, or with a relative and give money directly to the person in need. Any nearby villages, have extremely poor families, or take a walk through our 'state of the art' hospitals and pay for an operation of a poor person.

Go straight to the source.
There are people with experience and people with opinions. Listen to one, smile at the other.

Fatony: Does that mean you don't suggest we donate to organizations/orphanages and we donate the money directly to the people that need it?

What I am saying is by directly helping people, you are somehow ensuring that your money is not misused or leaking to some other sources. There are many genuine poor people in Algeria, just drive 70kms out of Algiers.

Another important point, our deen tells us that when helping, priority is given to those who are closest to us. We all have that aunty or uncle who are struggling or far cousins whom lost the breadwinner.

We are a small network In Denmark, collecting kids clothes and toys which we would like to donate anywhere it would be helpfull In algeria. We do not want to fund money, but instead personally hand over the things to the right place.

We'd like to get In contact with an orphanage or shelter for women and babies that could be In need of these things.

If anyone has ideas or good advice

..on how to get going, and which places would be good to contact, it would be much appreciated.

It would also be cool with a follow up on the charity event 2 ramadans ago. How did it go In the? Did the money become useful for the orphanage you raised money for?

Hope for some helpful replies :-)
