Help Syrian Families Have Faith this Ramadan

After nine years of brutal conflict, the people of Syria have lost everything: their families, their homes, their schools, their hospitals and their hope. All they have left is their faith

This year, we are calling on all our donors to also have faith. Have faith this Ramadan by giving generously. Have faith in the Syrian people, that they will make it through these dark times. And have faith in Syria Relief to deliver aid where it is needed most. We are the leading Syrian-focused charity in Europe, no other charity has the capacity to help millions of Syrian people every year as we do.

Over 11 million Syrian people are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance right now; each facing a daily fight for survival due to poverty, violence, disease and trauma. In these challenging times of global pandemic, the needs of displaced and refugee families have never been greater.

This year our team will be on the ground in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Turkey and Yemen delivering aid to some of the hardest to reach areas. We will be delivering food, emergency aid, water, medical care, shelter, education, orphan support and sustainable development projects.

So this Holy month have faith in us to deliver emergency aid where it is needed most.

For just £50 you can donate a food pack to a family in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey or Iraq that will feed a family for the whole month.

Food Pack

9 million Syrians require emergency food assistance to meet their basic food needs. 6.5 million people are facing life-threatening food insecurity. Malnutrition not only affects health but also hinders progress in other areas of development such as education and employment.

We are on the ground giving vulnerable families the food they need to survive. Each food pack can feed a family for a month and is high in quality, nutritionally balanced and contain locally sourced staple food such as lentils, rice, pasta, vegetables.

Orphan Support

Syria’s orphaned children did not ask to be born in a crisis, but for many, all they have known is war. Many lives and future generations of families have been lost in this 9-year brutal conflict. Orphans now face a daily battle just to stay alive.

Our Child Protection Teams are on the ground to ensure that the orphans we sponsor are well cared for, psychologically supported, fed, clothed and educated. Our priority is to support orphans in their normal or extended family environment without this support thousands are at risk of exploitation such as child labour, early marriage and other damaging activities.

Water and Sanitation

Water supply systems in Syria have been badly affected by the conflict. Displaced and refugee families do not have access to regular clean water. Providing safe, drinking water helps some of the most desperate families to break free from poverty and illness. Water is vital for drinking, cooking, washing and farming. The ability for Syrians to wash their hands is crucial in order for them to fight the coronavirus.

With reliable access to clean water, thousands of Syrian lives could be saved each day. Your donations will help provide clean drinking water to thousands of people daily.

Fidya and Kaffara

If you don’t fast for any of the days of Ramadan, you’ll be required to pay a charitable form of compensation. You must pay Fidya (Fidyah) if you are unable to fast for medical reasons or because of age. However, for any fasts missed unnecessarily, you’ll need to pay Kaffara (kaffarah).

Give your Fidya and Kaffara with Syria Relief. We will make sure to fulfil your religious duties by helping the most vulnerable Syrian families, who do not have food to eat, clean water to drink and permanent shelter.
