6.3 million internally displaced people

This is more than the entire population of neighbouring Lebanon

4.5 million have fled Syria as refugees

Half of these are children

13.5 million in need of assistance

The biggest humanitarian crisis of our time

Supporting Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

Since 2011, Syrian refugees have been spilling into Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. In Lebanon, a country the size of Yorkshire, Syrians make up more than 25% of the population.

Our teams have been making visits to eight refugee camps in Lebanon to deliver vital food relief and catch up with the families we support.


Seven Years On: Muslim Hands is Still on the Ground in Syria

Seven years since the start of conflict in Syria, over half the country’s population is in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Hospitals, schools and bakeries have been destroyed by heavy bombing and violence, hundreds of thousands have been killed and millions more have had to flee their homes.

Muslim Hands has been working in Syria since 2012. With your help we've delivered a continual supply of life-saving emergency aid as well as supporting Syrian families with education, healthcare and livelihoods projects. As the suffering shows no sign of abating, please remember Syria in your Sadaqah and Zakat.

What We're Doing

Muslim Hands has been on the ground, in Syria and on its borders since the very beginning. So far, with your help, Muslim Hands has provided:

Emergency food and winter aid to the fleeing population of Eastern Aleppo

Over 4,000 children with an education

Nearly 100,000 people with emergency food items

Families in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey with winter parcels and hygiene kits

Medical treatment to over 40,000 patients

Water tanks, an ambulance service and pyscho-social support for Syrian refugees in Lebanon

The Big Aid Convoy

This Ramadan, for the second year running, Muslim Hands is delivering a Big Aid Convoy of 35 containers of food from the UK and South Africa to Syrian refugees.

Last year, with your support, we were able to send £480,000 worth of food aid, consisting of rice, flour and tinned food to Syrian families.

This year we need to fill containers in various masjids across the United Kingdom and South Africa. Each location will ONLY be collecting either rice or flour (20kg bags only).

Please check with each location what item they are collecting and ensure all food donations are within 1-year sell-by-date minimum.
