Charity for an Orphan in our Care

We took an oprhan into our home after his parents died. Some people, including his uncles, want to help him and give him money, and some of that money comes to us. We consider him to be one of our own; what should we do?

There is nothing wrong with you taking from charity that is given to him as long as that amount equals your expenditure on him or is less than it. If it is more than what you spend on him, then you should save that excess amount for him. And rejoice of a good reward for raising him and for showing kindness to him.
