Here at Muslim Aid, we have a multitude of projects to share blessings and assist vulnerable people in fighting poverty this Ramadan. Although we should be making an effort to donate to charitable causes throughout the year, Ramadan charity is more important than ever. Your Ramadan donations can make the difference between life and death for millions of vulnerable families across the globe.
In addition to the aid that you provide for vulnerable communities, many personal rewards can be reaped from Ramadan giving. Since this is the time in which great focus is placed on making sacrifices in the name of Allah (SWT), donating allows us to adhere to the teachings of Ramadan.
When it comes to finding charities to donate to in Ramadan, Muslim Aid should always be considered.
The first of our projects that you can donate to during Ramadan, or any time of the year, is our Need is Greatest Appeal. By donating to this project, you enable us to deliver relief to the vulnerable, elderly, orphans, and widows in the poorest areas of the world.
As a result of natural disasters, war, and the COVID-19 pandemic, 68 million people have found themselves displaced from their homes. Each of these individuals is struggling to survive, and they rely on your charitable contributions just to get by. Your donations are distributed amongst those who require the most immediate support, from those who have been abandoned to those who are suffering from grief.
Another one of our projects is our Global Emergency Appeal, which allows us to respond urgently to any disasters. In the instance of an emergency, delays can be deadly. Innocent people find themselves scared, injured, trapped, and in danger, meaning that speed is essential in getting help to these individuals.
Your donations allow us to reach these endangered communities within 72 hours to distribute medical care, sanitation, shelter, water, and food. We make it our mission to be wherever we’re needed - regardless of the situation. Despite this, we need your donations to make this happen.
It’s a fact of life that everyone needs clean water to survive, which is why we established our Safe Water Project. Every two minutes, a child dies from a water-related disease, making a lack of safe drinking water one of the biggest threats to those living in poverty. Your Ramadan donations allow us to give water to some of the 2.1 billion individuals that are unable to access safe drinking water.
Water is a basic human right which makes it even more devastating that so many people are forced to go without, leading to disease, dehydration, and death. In order to shelter the vulnerable from hardship, they simply can’t go without water.
Sadaqah Jariyah is a form of Islamic voluntary charity that provides vulnerable individuals with ongoing benefits, such as paying for a child’s education so that they can go on to teach others. Ramadan is the ideal time to pay Sadaqah Jariyah as not only will you supply someone in need with long-term aid, but you’ll be rewarded by Allah (SWT) for your generosity.
There’s no denying that children are the future, and it’s our responsibility to provide them with the foundations to thrive. Your donations can enable a child to reach their full potential, which is why we established our Child Sponsorship Project.
With your charitable donations, we’ve been able to provide almost 50,000 children with an education in the last 14 years. We’re well-equipped in placing children within protected environments alongside caregivers that are able to respond to the complex and ever-changing needs of children. No one deserves security this Ramadan more than innocent children.
Another way in which you can shelter the vulnerable this Ramadan is by donating to our Fight Poverty Project. Instead of providing struggling families with temporary financial relief, our Fight Poverty Appeal is designed to empower communities through the teaching of essential skills to generate income. In doing so, we make it our mission to build brighter futures where individuals can develop and sustain themselves in a dignified manner.
Although monetary donations can provide families with the temporary aid that they need, this eventually runs out and they are forced into feeling reliant on others. The value of independence can’t be matched, which is why we deem our Fight Poverty Project so valuable.
There’s nothing scarier than falling ill and not having the means to help yourself, which is why we established our Medical Aid Project. Despite this, roughly half of the population is unable to access basic medical care, leading to deaths from the likes of malaria and TB. These deaths are completely preventable, and we require your donations to reach these individuals before it’s too late. Similarly, we can use your money to help deliver babies safely and respond to emergency situations.
Medical aid is a human right, not a luxury. Still, the financial situation of millions leaves them incapable of accessing it. This aid is required to shelter the vulnerable this Ramadan.
Without education, poor children across the globe are simply unable to break the vicious cycle of poverty. As a result, we established our Education Project to shelter children from the threats of poverty worldwide. Every child should have the opportunity to learn, grow, aspire, and achieve a bright future. Whether you support one child through their education or empower an entire community, your donations to our Education Appeal are absolutely life-changing.
We accept your donations all year round, but we especially encourage you to contribute to our charitable causes during Ramadan. Fulfil your religious duties and donate to Muslim Aid today.
