The blessed month of Ramadan is a time to strengthen our relationship with Allah (SWT) and obtain His mercy and forgiveness. It is also a time to reap and share the blessings offered to us, by carrying out good deeds and giving in the way of charity.
Ramadan in Gaza is like nowhere else in the world. The people of Gaza faced a devastating bombardment in 2014, they have lived under siege for over a decade and now are facing the terrifying prospect of a Corona Virus outbreak.
Gaza is densely populated and 80% of people are living below the poverty line. The people of Gaza have ongoing trauma from the bombardment, siege and the fear of more violence. As they try to survive the occupation, the spread of COVID-19 across the region will have a devastating impact on Gaza.
Your Zakat and Sadaqah will make a real difference during this time of uncertainty and crisis for impoverished families in Gaza.
By providing families in Gaza with urgent relief, including cash aid, food and medical aid, you can help to ease their burdens and restore hope to their lives during this this holy month.
Ramadan in Gaza may be difficult, but the people of Gaza have shown us time and time again what faith and resilience look like. In this time of calamity, Gaza needs us more than ever.
Since 2002, iF Charity has been working with its partners to support Palestinians through a variety of relief and development programmes. You can support families in Gaza during this special time by donating to our Ramadan programmes today.ZAKAT
