Assalaamu Alaykum!

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘The example of the believers in their affection, mercy and compassion for each other is that of a body. When one limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever’. [Bukhari]

Your donations have been making a difference around the world, providing vital winter support to those most in need through winter blankets, winter clothing, food & more! Let's take a look:

Our teams distributed COVID-19 relief to 600 beneficiaries this week in rural Karachi. This consisted of food, hygiene kits and winter shawls!

This distribution focused on families who had lost a loved one due to COVID or lost their job due to the virus. Your donation is providing hope to families who have lost everything, reminding them of the mercy of the Ummah.
The basic items that we take for granted every winter can be life-savers for families at the mercy of the cold, winter weather.

The first thing our beneficiaries do, is make du'a. And they always mention you. Though you do not know them, they do not know you - but their du'as are priceless!

Perhaps it is the du'a of someone in need whom we helped that will allow the mercy of Allah (swt) to enter Jannah.
May Allah swt accept your donations and give you more than what you gave! We are still on the ground distributing your donations, providing vital relief to those in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Jerusalem & more!
The Prophet (saw) said, 'No Muslim clothes a Muslim with a garment except that he is under the protection of Allah as long as a shred from it remains upon him'. [Tirmidhi]
Alhamdulilah, your support has helped our team in Yemen build mobile classes, helped children from rural villages have an opportunity to go to school.
Building equipment isn't unfortunately allowed in this certain area, due to the current conflict going on, Organisations tried to set up tents for mobile classes, however, the seasonal winds kept blowing them away.

Alhamdulilah your du'as have allowed 8 permanent mobile classes to be built!
Look at the joy of the children!
‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “Which charity is best?” He replied, “[Providing] water”’. [Abu Dawud]

You can donate a well on behalf of a loved one as a powerful Sadaqah Jariyah - giving them ongoing reward!

The gift of water saves lives, which is a hugely rewardable action. Allah says in the Qur’an, ‘And whoever saves one [a life] - it is as if he had saved all of mankind’. (Qur’an, 5:32) Imagine this - every single time the clean water you donated saves someone’s life, it is as if you have saved all of mankind!
Our team on the ground in Pakistan sat down with the children and helped them with their school work, played with them and spread joy Subhan'Allah.

This echoes the love the Prophet (saw) had for children, as he spent time with them, giving them his undivided attention.

The Prophet (saw) said, 'Allah is only merciful with those who show mercy to others'. [Bukhari]
A Major Giving donor helped to build a classroom in a rural area of Pakistan, providing the opportunity of education to the next generation!
And finally,

We're distributing winter relief across the UK, alongside our Open Kitchen in Hounslow. This distribution in Birmingham helped to deliver 30 sleeping bags, 40 Winter relief kits and 60 hygiene kits alongside our partners, Birmingham City Mission.

If you'd like to see more of the work we've been up to around the globe, then do check out our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

May Allah (swt) reward you all for your support and mercy. Our work is only possible through your du'as and donations. Please keep us in your prayers!
