Corona Virus Appeal
The still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic changed the world as we used to know forever.
Until now, the disease has caused the death of millions around the globe, with many more still under treatment from the infection, which puts a lot of pressure on medical staffs and infrastructures that are struggling to help patients infected by the virus and also those afflicted by regular emergencies.
The Pandemic also brought economic recessions and financial hardships to entrepreneurs and workers alike; businesses went bankrupt and jobs were destroyed, which caused many to struggle to survive in a dystopian new world, to which many are still not fully adapted.
Our Corona Virus Appeal aims to support individuals and families that are struggling with COVID-19, as well as to those who are enduring financial hardships caused by the Pandemic. With your help, we can defeat COVID-19!
Lebanon was once known as “the Switzerland of the Middle East”, however, those days of glory are now long gone.
The outbreak of the Lebanese Civil War, (1975-1990), destroyed most of the country’s infrastructure and produced thousands of casualties, especially among the civilian population, and was also the reason behind the exodus of approximately one million Lebanese nationals; most of whom never returned to Lebanon again, even after the end of the war.
The country was never fully able to recover from the conflict until the present days, due to general instabilities, the 2006 War and the current financial crisis, which caused the national currency, the Lebanese Lira, to lose about 90% of its value in one the highest hyperinflation cases of the 21st century.
Nowadays, Lebanon is a country at the brink of collapse. The current financial crisis threw the majority of the population below the poverty line, (about 78%), with many surviving in extreme poverty, (nearly 36%), in a country plagued by chronic instability and the highest population of war refugees of the world, (1.5 million refugees, which is nearly 20% of the country’s population).
The explosion of the port of Beirut, on August 4th 2020, (one of the most powerful non-nuclear blasts of History), aggravated the Lebanese Great Depression even further, due to the severe damages that were inflicted to the already crippled infrastructures of Lebanon. According to official numbers and data, a total of 218 people died, 7,000 were injured in the blast and US$ 15 Billion worth of infrastructure and property were severely damaged, leaving approximately 300,000 people homeless, as well as legions of others in an extremely precarious situation.
With your help, we can ease the suffering of the people in Lebanon, through the distribution of food and medical supplies, as well as other basic human needs.
Palestine Emergency Appeal
The occupation of Palestinian territories is one of the worst violations of human rights and international law still taking place in present day world, with millions living under the harsh conditions imposed by Israeli blockades, which, along with the still ongoing conflict, created a humanitarian crisis that plagues Palestinian lives with unemployment, food insecurity and a general shortage of basic goods and services that are fundamental to safeguard human life and dignity.
Since the beginning of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, (1948-ongoing), the Palestinian people have been victimized by the harsh injustices which are constantly being inflicted upon them by the Israeli authorities, in a never ending humanitarian catastrophe, which made 80% of the population of the Gaza Strip dependent on humanitarian aid in order to meet their most basic needs, such as food, clean water, healthcare and even electricity. The outcome is a perpetual hopeless present, where the past is a curse and the future is non-existing.
We need your help to bring ease to the suffering of the Palestinian people. Your donation, regardless of the amount, is more than welcomed; your aid will make possible the delivery of basic goods, as well as hope, to the afflicted population of Palestine.
Potable water is the most important resource of all: life cannot exist without water, which is used for drinking, cooking, hygiene and many other purposes, however, the number of people that don’t have access to clean water to supply their basic needs is scarily high.
Clean water plays a key role in both individual and public health. According to data of the World Health Organization, (WHO), at global level, at least 2 billion people consume water from contaminated sources, which leads to the transmission of diseases such as typhoid and cholera to entire communities.
The access to drinking water is much more than a basic human need; it is also a human right that must be safeguarded in order to create a better future to everybody.
Our Water Fund collects donations whose goal is to provide clean water to people in need. Your help is more than needed in this effort.
The welfare of orphans is a major topic of Islam’s social principles: Prophet Muhammad, (SAW), was himself an orphan and his teachings put a great emphasis on taking good care of children who lost their parents.
Orphaned children are in a situation of extreme vulnerability: without caretakers and role models, their future is highly compromised, particularly the ones that are also victims of poverty and other social issues.
To safeguard the upbringing of an orphan is one of the best deeds a Muslim can perform on the behalf of another person. With that in mind, we established the Orphans Fund, to bring ease to children who lost everything. Your donation will be used to supply orphaned children with clothes, food, toys and other basic needs.
Imam Al-Shafi’i, (RA), said: “Health is a crown that the healthy wear on their heads, but only the sick can see it.” In this quote of the Imam, (RA), it is illustrated the importance o being a healthy person: those that enjoy a good health are rulers of their own lives, while those who are ill are enslaved by their illness, craving for good health to pursue their dreams.
Consequently, it is impossible to create a better future to all without the provision of medical treatment, especially to the less fortunate ones.
Our Medical Fund has the mission to provide funding to hospitals and clinics in need, to supply medicines to those that are unable to afford them and to create new facilities to attend the general needs of poor communities at risk.
