Helping Families in Gaza and Yemen Cope With Conflict


The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, 'Adhere to Sham, for it is Allah’s best land, to which He selects His best servants to'. (Abu Dawud)

Decades of instability and the ongoing Israeli blockade have left families in the Gaza unable to enjoy the most basic of human rights such as access to food, water and medical treatment. Over 60% of Gazans suffer from food insecurity. Children are bearing the brunt of the conflict, with as many as half of them dependent on humanitarian assistance and one in four in need of psychological support.

Muslim Hands has been working in Palestine since 2007, providing medical care, food, education and livelihoods support to families across Gaza and the West Bank. Your donations will provide both emergency relief and long-term support to needy families in Gaza to help them build a better standard of living.


The Prophet (saw) said, ‘The best of men are the men of Yemen, belief is Yemeni, and I am Yemeni'. (Ahmad)

The people of Yemen were directly blessed by the Prophet Muhammad (saw) - but these blessed people are currently suffering from ‘the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time’ (UN). Almost five years of civil war and regional conflict have left 24.1 million Yemenis families in need of aid just to survive.

10 million people in Yemen are on living with extreme hunger and the country has been suffering from a record cholera outbreak since 2017. Every ten minutes, a child under five dies of preventable causes. It is our duty to put a stop to this tragedy.

Your donations will provide family food parcels and school meals for children, as well as setting up fully-equipped mobile health clinics in rural areas. You will also be helping us construct water wells and rehabilitate existing ones to provide hundreds of families with safe water. Your support will save lives.
