Springs of Hope-Family Center
SKT Welfare’s patron, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi, is one of the most preeminent Islamic scholars in the world today, having been included in the Royal Aal al-Bayt’s publication of the 500 most influential Muslims for several years running. He was one of the first from amongst the ulema to speak out against the use of excessive force against the populace in Syria.
The Sheikh is vocal in championing the rights of the Syrian people, and continues to call for humanitarian intervention and assistance. In addition, he has participated in several conferences and efforts aimed at propagating a peaceful transition to a stable, post-crisis Syria, which will engender freedom and justice for all, as well as protection for minorities.
SYRIA IN CRISIS:
It’s 2015, 5 years and counting, the enduring war in Syria has left nearly 8 million Syrian children in need of humanitarian assistance; 5.5 million of them within Syria. Five years into a grueling war and it would not be an exaggeration to say that most of these children have lost at least one family member.
“Whoever caresses the head of an orphan in affection, solely for the sake of Allah, a good deed will be written to his account for every hair over which he passed his hand, and whoever treated an orphan boy or girl with goodness and kindness, he and I will be close to each-other in Heaven as these two fingers” The Prophet (SAW) made a gesture with his fingers as explained above. – Prophetic Tradition

About SKT Welfare:
SKT Welfare is a US 501c(3) non profit organization dedicated to the delivery of humanitarian aid and solutions regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief. Its aim is to help relieve the suffering of the world’s poorest communities.
Since its inception, the charity has accomplished several projects in the UK, Pakistan, India, Morocco, Somalia and more recently, Palestine. However, since 2011 and the onset of the crisis in Syria, SKT Welfare has re-oriented most of its efforts addressing the humanitarian fallout from this conflict, and has become instrumental in delivering aid to Syrians in need, both inside Syria and within refugee camps in neighbouring countries. The charity has evolved and adapted itself successfully to what is an extremely difficult conflict zone to function within, operationally and logistically.
The charity operates a 100% donation policy, and all of its work is carried out by experienced and committed volunteers, overseen by trustees, who are primarily from professional backgrounds. SKT does not outsource any aspect of its relief efforts whatsoever, and takes complete ownership for delivering projects itself, end-to-end. Currently, SKT Welfare has offices in the UK, USA, Sweden, Turkey, Palestine and Jordan.
