Turning 26 with Acts of Kindness 

🎉 Help Me Make My 26th Birthday Truly Special 🎉

Hello, dear friends and family,

As I approach my 26th birthday, I can't help but reflect on how fortunate I am to be surrounded by such amazing people in my life. This year, I'd like to celebrate in a unique way by giving back and making a real difference in the lives of others.

For my birthday, I've teamed up with Islamic Relief Canada to host a fundraiser campaign that is incredibly close to my heart. We are raising funds for the displaced victims in Palestine, who have faced unimaginable challenges. Our aim is to provide them with much-needed non-food items and essential medical supplies.

Every dollar counts, and your generosity can truly change lives. I'm asking for donations of $26, but please don't feel limited by that amount. Give what you can, whether it's more or less. Your support will make a meaningful impact.

All donations will be handled directly by Islamic Relief, a reputable organization with a proven track record of helping those in need. Your contributions will be used efficiently to provide relief and hope to the displaced families of Palestine.

In the spirit of giving, I hope you'll consider making a contribution to this important cause. Your support means the world to me, and more importantly, it means the world to those who need our help. Together, we can make a real difference.

May you be rewarded for your kindness and compassion, and may the people of Palestine find solace and freedom. Thank you for being part of this special journey with me.

Your birthday wishes and the knowledge that we are making a positive impact together are the best gifts I could ask for.

With gratitude and warm regards,

Maher Handous

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.
