Somalia is on the brink of a humanitarian crisis

Lack of rain has devastated vegetation and water supplies in Somalia. Hunger is soaring. More than half the country is in need of emergency aid to avoid starvation. According to recent estimates over 5 million people are displaced within Somalia. Over 3 million children are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.

Unfortunately, whilst the conflict between government forces and non-state factors continues, the plight of people is becoming worse every day. Like any other conflict women, children, elderly and people with disabilities are the most at risk.

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.

Shortage of Food in Somalia

Over the past few years, the crop harvest has been significantly lower than the previous years causing the food shortage in towns, cities, and villages.

Millions of people including children in Somalia don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. However, for just £1 a day you can help relieve the worries of a family in Somalia.

Donate a food pack today and help us provide urgently needed food supplies to people facing starvation. At the same time, we should never forget our brothers and sisters in Duas.
