This Ramadan, for the third year running, Muslim Hands is sending a Big Aid Convoy of containers from the UK, South Africa & France to help provide food for Syrian refugees.

Over the last two years, with your support, we were able to send over £1.5m of in-kind donations, consisting of rice and flour to Syrian families.

This year we are aiming to fill 100 CONTAINERS in various masjids across the United Kingdom, South Africa & France.

Each location will ONLY be collecting either: rice and flour (20kg bags only).

*Please check with each location what item they are collecting and ensure all food donations are within 1-year sell-by-date minimum*

Feeding Syrian Refugees this Ramadan

We are in the ninth year of the Syria Crisis and the need for humanitarian assistance is as urgent as ever. Over 5.6 million Syrians have been forced to flee their homes, and they are now living in refugee camps across Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, completely dependent on aid to survive.
Muslim Hands have been working with Syrian families since 2012, delivering live-saving emergency relief as well as providing on-going support in education, healthcare and livelihood projects.

Last year, we were able to support Syrian refugees in Turkey and provide them with over £1.5 million worth of aid from the UK and South Africa, consisting of rice, flour and tinned food.
This Ramadan, we are aiming to help even more families. We are aiming to send 100 containers to refugee camps from the UK, France and South Africa.
