Thousands of Muslims visit Al-Aqsa every single day and it plays a central role in the religious life of the local community. As such, the site requires constant maintenance. Muslim Hands has been working with the Al Aqsa Waqf since 2008. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have so far: • Provided the site with a brand new public announcement system. • Upgraded the dilapidated toilet and wudhu facilities. • Rehabilitated the sewage infrastructure. • Replaced the paving stones of external walkways and around the Dome of the Rock. #MHFeedback2016 In sha Allah, with your donations, this year we intend to build a new wudhu area for women, and follow the sunnah by lighting Al Aqsa!

1.5 million Somalian people are displaced & nearly 40% of the population do not have enough food. Despite the challenges of working in areas of conflict, over the past year, Muslim Hands has continued to deliver vital aid and implement long-term development projects across the country. Muslim Hands established a free ambulance service in 2013. Since then, the MH ambulances have assisted over 12,300 people. In particular, the service has been a lifeline for Somalia’s most at-risk groups. With one in twelve Somalian mothers dying due to pregnancy related causes and one in seven children dying before their fifth birthday, our ambulances are a vital weapon in the fight against infant and maternal deaths. Additionally, In October, Muslim Hands constructed a well which is providing safe water to 10,000 internally displaced people. #MHFeedback2016
