Help Rebuild Lives in Palestine

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, 'Adhere to Shaam, for it is Allah’s best land, to which He selects His best servants...' [Abu Dawud]

The latest attack on Gaza and violence in the West Bank and Jerusalem has caused devastation on a scale not seen since 2014. 230 people have been killed, including 63 children, 1,900 people have been wounded and nearly 60,000 people have been left homeless.

Decades of instability and conflict have already left Palestinian families unable to enjoy the most basic of human rights such as access to food, water, and medical treatment. 68% of Gazans suffer from food insecurity and half of Gaza’s children are dependent on humanitarian assistance. There is also a critical shortage of medical supplies. In East Jerusalem, 81% of all Palestinian children live below the poverty line and many families cannot even afford food and basic necessities.

Muslim Hands is working with partners across the Palestinian territories to provide vital humanitarian aid, both emergency and long-term. In Gaza we are supplying food and medical relief and cash grants, as well as rebuilding homes damaged in both the latest military assault on Gaza and the 2014 bombardment. In the West Bank and Jerusalem, we are supporting vulnerable families with monthly sponsorships, sustaining livelihoods with olive trees and repairing the Blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.

You have always given generously to our brothers and sisters in Palestine, but they need your continued support. Our partner is on the ground right now providing vital relief and helping people to rebuild their lives. Give now to alleviate the suffering of Allah’s best servants.

Our Projects In Palestine

Zakat for Jerusalem's Families

Many of the Palestinian families in Jerusalem rely on visitors from abroad to bring them Zakat, but the ongoing pandemic has restricted travel, leaving communities in dire need.

In March 2021, our partners reported that they were running low on Zakat funds for the first time in 30 years. 1,700 families rely on them to meet their basic needs every month, including widows, orphans and the disabled. They urgently need your Zakat to provide for these vulnerable families. 

£50 will help one family meet their basic needs for a month. This includes food, medicines and bills. We are even delivering your Zakat straight to people’s doors if they are unable to leave the house, alhamdulillah!

Don't leave our brothers and sisters in dire need during this pandemic. Send them your Zakat to fulfil your obligation while helping them survive.

Orphan Sponsorships Change Lives

Thanks to our generous sponsors, we are currently supporting more than 1,000 orphans in Jerusalem just like Mohammad (pictured left). 

Since his father passed away, Mohammed's family has relied on Zakat and Sadaqah, with his mother doing her best to stretch this income over six children.

But alhamdulillah, she no longer has to worry about Mohammad's education. 

The orphan sponsorship has given Mohammad the chance to go to school and aspire to a brighter future. He dreams of relieving his mother's burdens, and he works hard at school, hoping he can become an engineer and support her.

Sponsor an orphan today to change the lives of children like Mohammad!

Olive Trees Provide Livelihoods

In East Jerusalem, 70% of Palestinians are living below the poverty line and in Gaza, unemployment rates are the highest in the world.

Olive tree cultivation is at the heart of Palestine’s fragile economy. By providing farmers in Jerusalem and Gaza with trees and equipment, your donations are helping Palestinian families support themselves and their communities in an increasingly bleak economic situation.

Don’t let poverty define someone. Empower a poor family with a livelihood today!

HOW YOU CAN HELP

£150 can provide ten olive trees to help people earn a sustainable livelihood.

£300 can provide twenty olive trees to help people earn a sustainable livelihood.
