Emergency Appeals: Helping Those in Need

Every single day across the world, there are people less fortunate than ourselves for whom daily life is a constant difficulty. These people are often struggling to survive and make a life for themselves without access to even basic essentials like food, clean water, shelter and warm clothing, let alone access to medical supplies or an education.

Helping the homeless and providing aid to those in need is essential – it is our duty as human beings to help out people who are less fortunate than ourselves. No matter whether we donate money or volunteer our time, there are plenty of ways in which we can offer our support to these people, both on our doorstep and much further afield.

Muslim Aid's emergency appeals are set up for this exact purpose – to enable us to provide direct assistance to the people who need our help the most.

Of course, it almost goes without saying that we should always be thankful for everything that we have. If you take the time to really think about it, you will probably find that you are actually much more fortunate than you may think at first, especially when your own life is put into perspective by the plight of so many other people around the world. That, in itself, should be a good enough reason to consider sharing some of the benefits of our own good fortune with others less fortunate than ourselves. Donate to Muslim Aid and support our emergency appeals to do your bit for these who desperately need our help.

Syria Emergency Appeal

The people of Syria have found themselves stuck in the middle of one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our era. They are faced with the impossible choice of staying in their cities and homes, at constant risk of further bombings and atrocities or attempting to flee the country alongside many thousands of other displaced people. The true horrors of what they have to go through every day is unimaginable – but for many Syrians, living in fear has become a way of life.

For all of the Syrian citizens caught up in the conflict, their country has become virtually unrecognisable. Innocent people are being killed and injured, families are split up, buildings and homes destroyed, and access to even the most basic supplies is difficult and limited.

Many Syrians have no choice but to flee their homes and attempt the perilous crossing over the border into neighbouring countries. Syria donations are essential for both refugee families and those who still remain in the country’s besieged towns and cities.  

With your support, our determined team members can provide food packages, fuel for cooking and heating, and much-needed medical supplies to the Syrian people. For the people of Syria, donations are essential for getting this vital aid and support. Even the smallest of donations can help us reach more men, women, children and families and extend the reach of our Syria emergency appeal.

Iraq Emergency Appeal

The ongoing conflict in Iraq is showing no sign of ending anytime soon, spelling further troubled times ahead for its people. With each passing day, the crisis in Iraq only worsens, adding to the issues the Iraqi people constantly face.

Thousands of people have escaped the worst affected areas so far, with conditions in certain parts of the country rendered virtually uninhabitable. As a result of the conflict, the residents of Iraq’s cities deal with constant bombings and bombardment, as well as a lack of food, clean and safe water, and proper infrastructure.

Through our Iraq emergency appeal, Muslim Aid is firmly at the forefront of tackling the issues, providing aid to the people of Iraq. Since the conflict began, we have set up a camp for displaced Iraqi refugee families, as well as continuing to send care packages of food, water, and other essential items to these people.

However, there is always more work needing to be done, and always more families in desperate need of our help.

Myanmar Emergency Appeal

Due to the recent conflict in the country, more than half a million people in Myanmar are in urgent need of our help. Many citizens of Myanmar have been displaced as a result of the conflict, resulting in people being left without homes, often in unfamiliar areas.

Add to this the severity of the monsoon, and it isn’t hard to see why people in Myanmar so urgently need our help.

Providing support for the displaced is a key part of Muslim Aid’s Myanmar emergency appeal. Our dedicated teams are out working on the ground, tackling the issue head on. We are building homes, schools and health clinics in the country in an attempt to do our bit to rebuild Myanmar’s infrastructure, healthcare and education systems. We are also committed to providing education to over 8,700 children each year – we believe that every child has the right to an education, and it is our duty to make this accessible to them.

In order to continue achieving this goal, we need your support. Donate to Muslim Aid and help us to keep on providing the right to an education for the displaced children of Myanmar.

Europe Refugee Crisis

As a result of ongoing conflicts in countries across the world, refugees are continually arriving in Europe in search of a better life and a safer, more secure future for themselves and their families.

These refugees are fleeing war, conflict, poverty and violence, yet are having to face danger every day on their journey to Europe. There is a lack of necessary infrastructure in place to settle them, meaning that their journeys are even more perilous as a result of this.

Our Europe refugee crisis appeal allows us to send aid to the affected regions and provide much-needed support to displaced refugee families trying to cross into Europe. As part of our ongoing work with refugees, we are providing a support network for orphans as well as sending care packages of food and other essential items out to refugee families.

In order to provide assistance to as many people as possible, we need your support. Help us to give aid to refugees desperately searching for a new life; free from conflict and violence.
