Help Feed Syrian Refugees

Imagine life in a camp with no luxuries and only the basic means for survival. This is the harsh reality for many Syrian refugees living in refugee camps across Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.

Six 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 been forced to flee their homes.

Muslim Hands has been working in Syria since 2012 and 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.

This Ramadan, we urgently need your in-kind food donations to help feed Syrian refugees in refugee camps at the Syrian border.

Q. What food items can I donate?

A. We are collecting the following food items: plain flour, rice, tinned foods (chickpeas and kidney beans only).

*Please ensure all items donated are in at least 1 year within their sell-by-date.*

Q. Can I purchase the food items with my Zakat?

A. Yes. You can use your zakat to purchase food items for the containers.

Q. Where can I find the food containers?

A. The containers will be placed in various Mosques across England. Please see locations above in the locations section.

Q. When can I drop off my donations?

A. You can drop off the items from 3pm-11pm.

Q. How long will the containers be available at these locations?

A. The containers will remain at these locations from 15th-25th June 2017 - ten days only.
