Fulfill your responsibility as the Ummah
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Dear Sisters,
More than 1 million Palestinians have been asked to leave their homes and are facing devastating consequences.
Allah swt says in the Qur’an:
وَأَنفِقُوا۟ مِن مَّا رَزَقْنَـٰكُم مِّن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِىَ أَحَدَكُمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ فَيَقُولَ رَبِّ لَوْلَآ أَخَّرْتَنِىٓ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍۢ قَرِيبٍۢ فَأَصَّدَّقَ وَأَكُن مِّنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحِينَ
“And donate from what We have provided for you before death comes to one of you, and you cry, “My Lord! If only You delayed me for a short while, I would give in charity and be one of the righteous.” (63:10)
This is our utmost responsibility to do anything and everything for those in pain. A believer cannot rest when their brothers and sisters are in pain.
Whether you are a student, parent, teenager, young, old, with whatever capacity, add your share. Little drops make an ocean.
May Allah swt relieve the pain of Palestinians and accept your share.
Islamic Relief Canada's Palestine Emergency Appeal
Why Palestine needs our support
The people of Palestine are no stranger to devastation. Ongoing violence and restrictions have severely impacted access to food, water, and healthcare in Palestine, especially the Gaza strip.
With over 1.3 million people in need of humanitarian aid in Gaza, Islamic Relief Canada is on the ground providing emergency relief as well as helping families recover from the ongoing violence. Every dollar you give means we can reach more children, women and the elderly who continue to face hunger, poverty, trauma and loss.
Your support for Palestine will reach them through immediate food supplies, shelter, hygiene kits and cash assistance, as well as focusing on recovery through sustainable agriculture, livelihood support and dignified income opportunities.
The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated places on Earth. It has a population of approximately 2.1 million people and since 2007 it has been under a land, sea and air blockade imposed by Israel.
Years of conflict and the blockade have left 80% of the population dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive. Access to clean water is not possible for 95% of the population, impacting essential services like health, water and sanitation. Almost half of Gaza’s people do not have enough food, around 60% of children are anaemic, and many children suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition.
How your donations are making a difference to the people of Palestine
Islamic Relief has been working in Palestine since 1994. Our work in Gaza is focused on getting food to those who need it most, treating urgent health needs, facilitating access to water, sponsoring orphans and distributing aid during emergencies.
Through your Palestine donations, our team supports the developmental needs of the communities in Gaza through improving access to education, healthcare, psychosocial services, and livelihoods. The ongoing crisis has had a traumatic effect on generations of children. Through our psychosocial services, we are able to provide safe spaces where they can build self esteem and work on social, communication and conflict resolution skills.
Your support for Gaza is helping our teams to deliver vital medical supplies and vaccines to patients and staff. We also provide key items such as medicine, disposables, medical kits and food for all.
How you can help Palestine
Even though tensions are extremely high, we are ready to help Palestine now. We will provide lifesaving care in areas where the health system is struggling to cope.
In Gaza the Islamic Relief team works extensively, providing vital medical supplies, sponsoring orphans, distributing Ramadan food packs, and personal protective equipment to ensure the safety of the healthcare workers.
The health system is under a lot of pressure due to staff shortages and lack of medical supplies. Show your support for the people in need by donating to our Palestine Emergency Relief.
Around half of the people living in Palestine are in need of vital aid and water. Islamic Relief is on the ground working to support the people in need across the region. Help save lives now.
