All proceeds from this event will be going to our winter projects for Afghanistan and Syria.
Afghanistan and Syria have been facing a humanitarian crisis for decades. Due to escalated tensions and ongoing political insecurity, families have been forced to flee their homes in search of safety.
Millions are struggling to put food on the table, this struggle only gets worse with the temperatures dropping.
Our Winter Project provides immediate humanitarian support to help families cope during the harsh winter season. The changing seasons will bring new hardships for vulnerable communities across Afghanistan and Syria.
Islamic Relief’s work focuses on assisting the most vulnerable, with projects targeting groups such as displaced people, refugees, and communities living in inadequate shelters.
Those in need will receive food packs, provision of gas heaters and firewood, warm clothes, blankets, and mattresses.
Many of the ones in need are orphans, widows, and the elderly who cannot wait any longer.
Every donation will help save lives.
“Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve them of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement.”
