Rohingya Refugee Crisis Appeal

In this day and age, having citizenship in a country is considered a blessing. Unfortunately, Rohingya Muslims are the only community in the world without any state. Over 1.5 million Rohingyas were living in Myanmar before the 2016-17 crisis. However, the Myanmar army, together with fanatic Buddhists, butchered thousands of men, children, and women. They burnt their homes, destroyed all their belongings, and forced them to flee the country, taking refuge in neighbouring countries like Malaysia and Bangladesh. In 2013, the United Nations described the Rohingyas as the most ‘persecuted people in the world.’ As you can see, this has led to many Rohingya refugees fleeing their country in search of a better life, proper education, and a brighter future for their families. Donate to the Rohingya Refugee Crisis Appeal and show your love and care for Rohingya Muslims.

£20 will provide over 10 cooked meals for Rohingya Muslims.

£35 will provide a food pack for a Rohingya family in Bangladesh.

£100 will provide financial support to a family to bring order to their lives.

£200 will provide up to 10 families access to clean water just outside their tents.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

GIVE THE GIFT OF FOOD FOR ROHINGYAS IN BANGLADESH

Bangladesh took in over one million Rohingya Refugees after their persecution at the hands of the Myanmar Army and Buddist terrorists. At this moment, nearly one million Rohingya refugees are living in an extremely densely populated area of Cox Bazar on the coast of Bangladesh. According to the UN, Cox Bazar is the world’s largest refugee camp. However, conditions in these camps are very challenging for Rohingya refugees.

The camps are overcrowded with makeshift plastic tents, and there is a dire lack of access to food, clean water, and clothing. Many of the refugees urgently need medical attention, suffering from skin diseases and diarrhoea. A significant portion of the refugee population consists of elderly family members, women, and children who have been separated from their guardians. Consequently, the health authorities in Bangladesh are struggling to cope with the overwhelming needs.

Help Protect Lives In Rohingya Refugee Camps

Every time it rains in the camps it causes floods and landslides, thus increasing the misery of these people already living in poor conditions. With your help, you can make a collective difference and help save lives.

Who Are Rohingyas?

The Rohingya are a Muslim minority ethnic group, that consists of over 1 million people living in Myanmar. The community has often faced restrictions that affect their daily lives and basic rights.

YOUR DUTY AS A MUSLIM TO HELP THE ROHINGYAS

Rohingya Refugees are our Muslim brothers and sisters. We must help them with food, water, and financial aid to help them rebuild their lives.

Narrated An-Nu`man bin Bashir:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “You see the believers as regards their being merciful among themselves and showing love among themselves and being kind, resembling one body, so that, if any part of the body is not well then the whole body shares the sleeplessness (insomnia) and fever with it.” 

Sahih al-Bukhari

Alhamdulillah, with Allah’s blessing, since the start of the crisis, we’ve provided free medical care, distributed food packs, and built water pumps for drinking and sanitation purposes. Additionally, we’ve provided women with sanitary products to help them through their monthly periods and childbirth. All this has been made possible because of your donations towards the Rohingya Refugee Crisis Appeal.

INHUMANE CONDITIONS IN ROHINGYA REFUGEE CAMPS

Saying the task was easy would be an understatement. Honestly, we have delivered aid in many parts of the world, from the Indonesia Earthquake Zone to Syrian Refugee Camps, but the conditions we witnessed in Cox’s Bazar were beyond anything we’ve seen. ‘Tough’ doesn’t even begin to describe it; it was inhumane, and to this day, conditions have scarcely improved.

O Muslims, these are your brothers and sisters; they need your help. With your support, we can continue to provide emergency aid to the most persecuted community in the world. While we might not be able to change everything, together we can make our contribution to help Rohingya Refugees.

All this work is only possible with your generosity. Help us continue to support our Rohingya brothers and sisters; donate today.

Disaster can Strike Anywhere, Anytime

Unfortunately, recent human history has emphatically confirmed this reality. Since the turn of the century, we have seen disaster after disaster unfold, some natural but predominantly manmade. As a Muslim Humanitarian Charity, it’s crucial for us to have emergency funds readily available to respond swiftly to these disasters.

Whether it’s the Gaza Emergency Appeal, Yemen Emergency Appeal, Syrian Refugee Crisis, Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal, Afghanistan Emergency Appeal, Pakistan Floods Appeal, Rohingya Refugee Crisis Appeal, or Africa Drought Appeal, our ability to continue helping those affected by these conflicts, wars, and crises relies on your ongoing support. We urge you to donate your Sadaqah and Zakat to these appeals, aiding in the protection of lives throughout the year and in times of crisis.

However, if you are looking to build a Masjid as Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones, or if you wish to build a water pump, donate a food pack, sponsor a sewing machine, sponsor an orphan, sponsor a hafiz, or need to give Kaffarah for Breaking an Oath, consider our appeals. Donate to the Ramadan Food Appeal, the Ramadan Zakat Appeal, or simply donate your Zakat to assist the poor and needy around the world. Insha’Allah, donate with confidence for the sake of Allah.
