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.

Yemen Humanitarian Crisis – How it all started?

Yemen war started in 2015, however, it was in making for decades. Failure of the political system at every government level, corruption by government officials took Yemen to a point where there was no turning back. Rebel groups started taking on the government forces and town by town, city by city Yemen went into the hands of Rebel groups. Violence erupted everywhere and people started to leave their homes and take refuge in other parts of the country. Over 11 million people became refugees within their own country. In the first 3 years of the conflict over 10,000 civilians were killed indiscriminately.

In 2015, an international coalition started an airstrike campaign against the rebels. This campaign didn’t really affect the rebel groups but tens of thousands of civilians became victims of these airstrikes. This was the moment when Yemen Crisis became the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis.

Story of a mother

Fatima is 68 years old. She lives in a rundown house in Sana’a. Since the start of the Yemen conflict, she has lost three sons.

Two of her daughters-in-law have got married again, leaving 6 children with the grandmother. Fatima has no choice but to wait for charities like Islamic Welfare Trust to provide food for her family. There are thousands of grandmothers like Fatima who have lost everything. As Muslims, it is our duty to provide food to these families.

Alhamdulillah, Islamic Welfare Trust is on the ground delivering life-saving food aid in the heart of the Sana’a region. We are providing regular monthly food parcels for hundreds of families. With your generous donations towards our Yemen Emergency Appeal, we will Insha’Allah be able to reach more grandmothers like Fatima.

Story of a disabled child

Umar lives in an area near the frontline where government forces and rebels are fighting. Like every day Umar along with his friend was walking to school. As they were walking fight broke between the rebels and the government forces. Both boys got caught in and were hit with an artillery shell. Umar’s friend died on the spot, however, Umar made it to the hospital where doctors had to perform an emergency operation and amputate one of his legs.

Alhamdulillah, Umar survived but at the cost of losing his leg. He wished he could play with his brothers and friends but all he can do now is to watch them from the side or through his house window.

There are millions of children and adults who have become disabled during this conflict. Life is already tough in Yemen, however, for a disabled person, it is even tougher. Alhamdulillah, upon our travel in Yemen we came across many towns and cities that wouldn’t have survived this conflict if the food and water aid from UK Muslim Charities wouldn’t have got there.

Malnutrition in Yemen: a crisis within a crisis

A country that already had a high poverty rate. Millions were suffering from poor health. Yemen civil war has taken these problems to another level. After the violence, the biggest problem faced by the people of Yemen is Malnutrition, especially amongst the children. According to UN agencies, if we don’t act RIGHT NOW, over 400,000 children will die every year just because they did not have enough food to eat.
