Jerusalem: Family Food Parcel
’Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs...' [Qur’an, 17:1]
Allah (swt) has blessed the surroundings of Al-Aqsa in the Qur’an. Yet today, the families who live in this blessed city are struggling.
80% of Palestinians in East Jerusalem are suffering from poverty, unable to afford essentials like food and medicine. With the cessation of travel to the region due to coronavirus, many struggling families won’t receive the Zakat and Sadaqah they rely upon each year.
£80 feeds a family in East Jerusalem for one month.
