Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal

A decade-long conflict has pushed millions of Syrians into a permanent state of poverty. Syrian families need our continuous support for many years to help them rebuild their towns, cities, and most importantly, their lives.

Since the conflict began in 2011, more than 6 million Syrians have been forced to flee their country, while over 7 million have been displaced within its borders. The vast majority of Syrian refugees have sought safety from bombardment and torture in neighbouring countries, escaping the dire conditions at home. Donate to the Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal and provide life-saving food and financial aid to families in need.

£20 will provide over 10 cooked meals for Syrians.

£35 will provide a food pack for a Syrian family living in Refugee Camps.

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

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.

Donation Total: £20.00 One Time


Over 7 million Syrians are displaced within Syria, currently living in small settlements and temporary accommodations like tents and makeshift houses. Often, these camps are overcrowded and lack the basic necessities of life. The following countries are hosting Syrian Refugees:

  • Turkey is hosting over 3.6 million Syrian refugees and is the biggest host 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.
  • Germany 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 a 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 refugees living in neighbouring countries are in temporary accommodations and lack access to nutritional food, clean drinking water, sanitation, and safety from harsh weather conditions.


Living in camp cities, Syrian refugees’ struggles intensify daily. Refugees in these camps lack proper healthcare, sanitation, education, nutritional food, and clean drinking water. Every winter, families face harsh conditions, and in summer, they endure extreme heat without respite. It’s a daily battle for many Syrian families, as internal conflicts have drastically altered their lives.

What we take for granted—food, water, and shelter—is a constant challenge for Syrian families. Additionally, low wages make it difficult for them to provide for their children. With your help, you can contribute towards a better life for Syrian refugees, helping them access clean water, proper food, and shelter.


Syrians are our Muslim brothers and sisters. Every Muslim must 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, the 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 need 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 the 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 to the Syria Refugee Crisis Appeal.


Since 2011, millions of Syrian refugees in countries like Turkey and Jordan have faced a daily struggle for food, healthcare, education, and protection against extreme weather. Nearly 65% live below the poverty line in Turkey, grappling with food shortages and inadequate access to essential services. In Jordan, the majority live outside camps, with less than one in four being food secure and many lacking basic healthcare and education.

The refugees’ needs are urgent and varied, extending beyond food to comprehensive support for their well-being. As they contend with scorching summers and freezing winters, the call for assistance grows louder. Your support for food packs and broader aid can provide critical relief and hope to these displaced populations.

By donating to the Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal, you will help the families we support rebuild their lives, with the hope that one day they can return to their homes and reconstruct their towns, cities, and lives.

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 Appeal, 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.
