Refugee Children

Since the outbreak of conflict in Syria in 2011 over 2 million children have become refugees. Meanwhile, the 2014 conflict in Gaza killed more than 500 children. Join us and help these children get back the childhood that was so cruelly taken from them.

With your support we want to provide specialised psycho-social support delivered through sporting activities. Muslim Hands have teamed up with The Change Foundation (http://www.thechangefoundation.org.uk/) who specialise in creating tailor made sporting support activities for children in difficult situations.

Too many of these children have witnessed unimaginable horrors and unprecedented levels of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and depression and need immediate psycho-social care.

Organise a sporting activity of your choice, get your friends, family members, work mates and neighbours involved and help us provide care to vulnerable children. Together, we can make a difference!

Q. Who can take part in the We Are Change campaign?

A. The We Are Change campaign is open to anyone. The We Are Change campaign is all about bringing communities together to make a big collective difference.

Q. How much do I need to raise?

A. From each sporting event we encourage a minimum target of £100 to be raised.
For example, that’s one 5-a-side football tournament with each participant donating £10 each in a local park.

We hope the enthusiasm from participants allows that target to be exceeded!

Q. What happens on the day?

A. However you plan to run your sporting event, we will provide you with balloons and tshirts on request and support you as much as you need.

Q. How do I get involved?

A. Simply fill in the registration form and a Muslim Hands staff member from the Events Team will get in touch.
