Why should you deploy with us?

For over a decade, you have provided families in Lebanon with vital emergency relief including food, water and winter supplies, as well as helping to establish schools, bakeries and mobile medical clinics.

Now, you can personally visit Lebanon to distribute aid and repair shelters. By signing up for this experience of a lifetime, you will see first-hand the impact of your donations, as well as greet some of the most blessed people in the Ummah and hear their stories for yourself.

Join us and raise £5,000 to make a difference in June 2022.


Food and Shelter in Lebanon

The people of Shaam (Greater Syria) are particularly dear to the Prophet (saw) and he used to pray for this blessed land. Yet today, the region is suffering from years of conflict and displacement. The crisis can be clearly seen in Lebanon, which has welcomed refugees from Palestine and Syria for many years, despite suffering from the impact of war and economic crisis itself.

Many charities provide food for our brothers and sisters during the month of Ramadan, but once Ramadan is over, they go back to having no food. They are impoverished families who have nowhere to turn or refugees who have left everything behind to survive. Therefore, we have decided to distribute your Zakat and Sadaqah on the ground during Shawwal.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘It (Shaam or Greater Syria) is Allah’s best land, to which He sends His best servants’. [Abu Dawud]

Don't miss out on this chance to help Allah's best servants.
