Helping Families in Palestine Since 2007

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

Decades of instability and the ongoing Israeli blockade has left families on the Gaza strip and the West Bank unable to enjoy the most basic of human rights such as access to food, water and medical treatment.

Over 30% of Palestinians suffer from food insecurity and in Gaza, the number jumps up to over 60%. Children in the region are bearing the brunt of the conflict, with as many as half of them dependent on humanitarian assistance and one in four in need of psychological support.

Muslim Hands has been working in Palestine since 2007, providing medical care, food, education and livelihoods support to families across Gaza and the West Bank. With the situation in Palestine deteriorating with each passing year, we need your continued support to provide urgent relief.

As well as providing emergency aid, we are committed to supporting Gazans over the long term by helping them to rebuild and regain a decent standard of life. Donate today and help us to ease their burden.

 

Our Projects In Palestine

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!

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.

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.
