Is it Permissible to Take Care of an Illegitimate Child in a Non-Muslim Country?

My fiancé lives in the United States and in order to receive the reward of looking after an orphan, he takes care of an illegitimate three-year old Christian girl. That girl thinks that he is her father and calls him as such although he isn`t the only one in charge of her for her grandmother is alive. He actually takes care of her in the sense that he follows up her schooling and buys her things. Is this permissible?
