Alleviate Syrian Refugees’ Hunger: Help provide food for refugees fleeing Syria during their journey to safety

iCrowdNewswire - Nov 10, 2015

Alleviate Syrian Refugees’ Hunger

Can you imagine fleeing your home with nothing but a backpack of belongings?

This is what hundreds of thousands of Syrians are forced to do. Not knowing where their next meal will come from, let alone if they will survive the difficult journey across the sea, refugees courageously make their way to Europe to escape war and persecution. It’s hard to imagine yourself in this situation; it all seems so distant. We thought so too before watching Al-Jazeera’s piece featuring Gabriela, a volunteer from Macedonia who has been tirelessly putting herself at the service of refugees that are making their journeys to a new life.

We were inspired to follow in her footsteps and dedicate our time, energy, and money towards providing sustenance to refugees during this incredibly difficult time in their lives. We reached out to Gabriela, and she kindly provided us with her contacts on the ground. Our mission is to join volunteers (December to January 2016) in Greece and Turkey to personally distribute food to refugees. All images on the top of this page are from the group of volunteers we will be joining. With this campaign, we wanted to extend the opportunity to others who want to help us provide for refugees.

The Prophet PBUH advised us, “Anyone whose food exceeds his needs, let him share it with someone who does not have food”.

Where will funds collected go?

All funds collected will go solely towards:

1). FOOD

2). Costs of van/truck rental to transport the food to refugees

No donation is too small. Even if it’s just a dollar, think of it as buying a dozen of eggs.


How can you help?

Donate to the campaign! 

There is no such thing as a donation that is too small.

The Holy Quran commands us: “Spend (in charity) out of the sustenance that We have bestowed on you before that time when death will come to someone, and he shall say: “O my Lord! If only you would grant me reprieve for a little while, then I would give in charity, and be among the righteous.” [63:10]

Also, do not forget the refugees in your prayers/duaas
