Syrian Mothers

Women are the sole providers for one in four refugee families fleeing Syria. Forced to leave their homes and seek refuge in already overcrowded camps in neighbouring Turkey and Lebanon, access to everyday supplies of food and other basic essentials is severely restricted for these women and their families.

The struggles faced by Syrian mothers has left them in a state of isolation, anxiety and vulnerability. The refugee crisis continues to escalate and mothers continue to fend for themselves and their families with very little resources available to them. Despite the daily hardships that Syrian mothers face, their strength and resilience is the glue that holds their families together.

Committed to assisting victims of conflict, Muslim Hands is working in refugee camps in Lebanon and Turkey. With your support, we can help Syrian mothers rebuild their communities.

Take part in The Grand Bake Off competition to show your support and raise vital funds.
