Ansar al-Hujjah (A.S.) Charitable Institution
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
"And they ask you concerning the orphans say: To set right for them (their affairs) is good, Bestow the due rights to the persons and endeavour to mitigate the conditions of the orphan families and aged persons who are helpless but do not ask for any succour."
[Imam Ali (A.S.)'s Commandment to Malek Ashtar, the Governor of Egypt]

The History of the Establishment of "Ansar al-Hujjah (A.S.) Charitable Institution"
In the year 1968, during a Qur'anic recitation session in the holy city of Mashhad,the verse of the Holy Qur'an: "And (in spite of their own needs) they give food, for love of Him, to the poor, and the orphan and the captive (76:8)" inspired some philanthropic persons to establish a charitable institution in the name of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) and they named this organization as "Ansar al-Hujjah(A.S.) Charitable Institution".
The selfless endeavors of the founding members attracted many other philanthropic and benevolent persons to this organization and welfare activities of the institution expanded on a large scale. This benevolent center's foundation which was based on the inspiration from the above - mentioned verse of the Holy Qur'an and sustained and strengthened by the assistance of the philanthropic persons was successful in mitigating the sufferings of the respectable widows who lost their husbands and the orphaned children who were trained and educated by this institution to become the important citizens of the society.
Many orphaned girls were imparted education and all the necessary facilities were provided to them to get married in a very dignified way. Many of the orphaned girls continued their higher studies with the help of this institution and were able to attain high educational qualification and social status. The widows under the patronage of this organization were helped to live a happy life and bringing joy and happiness in the lives of the orphaned children.
The managing directors of the "Ansar al-Hujjah (A.S.) Charitable Institution" express their deep gratitude and sincere thanks to all those benevolent and philanthropic persons who had always assisted this organization with the material and spiritual help, thus enabling the institution to render necessary help and required facilities for the lives and upbringing of the widows and orphaned children. We pray to Allah Almighty to grant all these benevolent persons peace, prosperity and success in rendering services in the noble causes.

The Financial Sources of the "Ansar al-Hujjah(A.S.) Charitable Institution"
The financial income and sources of this organization are based on the collection and receipt of the gifts, charities, bequeathed assets, Khums (the Sahm-portion-of the Sadaat), Fitriyah (the Zakat paid at the termination of the holy month of Ramadan), Kaffarah (the alms paid for the expiation of the errors) and various other charitable donations. The income and expenditure of the organization are registered in the official auditing office. The balance sheet after the approval by the managing directors of the institution is released and distributed among its members and other organizations and institutions.

Every family has its own identification file in which all their specifications are mentioned and recorded.About 220 men and women volunteer to distribute and deliver the material help at the doors of these families and every volunteer person is responsible for delivering goods and material help to five or six families.
On the first day of every month, they supply the essential food items to these families in the night with due respects to them and enquire about their problems and report them to the institution's office for the proper investigation and follow up. In addition to the monthly supply of the essential food items and financial aid the below-mentioned help
is also provided to the widows and families with orphaned children.
