Save Syrian Lives – Key Facts

A violent crackdown on peaceful protestors led Syria into a full-blown civil war. Since the start of the conflict, the Syrian regime has indiscriminately killed and prosecuted anyone who came in their pursuit of clinging on the power.

Since the start of the conflict in 2011, more than 6 million Syrians have been forced to flee their country. Over 7 million have been driven away from their homes but are still trapped inside the country. A vast majority of Syrian refugees who fled the country have managed to find safety from bombardment and torture in neighbouring countries.

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.

  • Turkey is hosting over 3.6 Syrian refugees and is the biggest taker of Syrian Refugees since the start of the Syrian War
  • Lebanon is home to over 944,000 Syrian refugees
  • Jordan has provided refuge to over 676,000 Syrians
  • German has taken in over 532,000 Syrians affected by the war
  • Iraq is home to over 253,000 Syrian Refugees
  • Egypt is hosting over 133,000 Syrian Refugees
  • Sweden has provided refuge to over 109,000 Syrian Refugees
  • Sudan is home to over 94,000 Syrians
  • Austria is providing safe haven to over 49,000 Syrians
  • The Netherlands is housing over 32,000 Syrian Refugees

83% of Syrian Refugees are still living in countries bordering Syria

Most of the refugees living in neighouring countries are living in temporary accommodations and lack access to nutritional food, clean drinking water, sanitation and safety from harsh weather conditions.

Syrian Refugees Facing Hardship – Gift Of Food

Living in these camp cities Syrian refugees’ struggles are increasing every day. Refugees living in these camps lack access to proper healthcare, sanitation, education, nutritional foods or clean drinking water. Every winter families are exposed to the harsh winter conditions and every summer they have nowhere to escape from the extreme heat and temperatures. It is a daily battle for many Syrian families as their lives have changed due to internal conflicts within the country.

What we take for granted, such as food, water and shelter is something of a challenge for Syrian families. On top of this, low wages have made it difficult for Syrian families to provide food and water for their children. With your help, you can help contribute towards a better life for Syrian refugees and help them get access to clean water, proper food and shelter.

Fulfil Your Duty As A Muslim And Help Syrian Refugees

Syrians are our Muslim brothers and sisters. It is every Muslim’s duty to help their Muslim brothers and sisters in need.

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 Syrian crisis, Islamic Welfare Trust has been at the forefront of providing emergency aid to Syrian Refugees. Over the years we’ve distributed food packs, delivered winter packs and provided day to day essentials to thousands of Syrians living in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.

O Muslims. your Syrian brothers and sisters are in need to help. With your help, we can continue to offer emergency aid to the Syrian Refugees. We know that we on our own cannot change the situation of Syrian people but together we can make our contribution to help our Syrian brothers and sisters in need.

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

Sponsor A Food Pack For Syrian Refugees In Turkey

Since 2011, many Syrians have fled their country and settled in Turkey to look for new opportunities. However, many people are still suffering and are finding it difficult to make ends meet. Did you know that over almost over 65% of Syrians, living in Turkey are below the poverty line?

There are thousands and thousands of Syrian refugees in Turkey but the country has struggled to cope with the huge number. This has led to shortages in food and therefore, our teams have dedicated people to deliver food packs to people that are living in poverty throughout towns and refugee camps.

Sponsor A Food Pack For Syrian Refugees In Jordan

Jordan has a population of just over 10 million people of which nearly 3 million people consist of refugees. The country has a scarce water supply and limited agricultural land.

According to the 2018 Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis, less than one in four Syrian refugees (23 percent) are food secure, compared to 28 per cent in 2016. Nearly 700,000 Syrian refugees are living in Jordan at the moment.

The majority of the total Syrian refugee population (around 80%), are living out of camps.
