Last Ramadan, Gaza experienced its fourth large scale bombardment since the siege began in 2007. Over 260 people were killed and everyone has been left traumatized and fearful. The people of Gaza are living through fourteen years of an inhumane siege, ongoing violence and trauma as well as a global pandemic.
Gaza’s economy and health sector are failing and poverty is at shockingly high levels with over 80% of people living below the poverty line. It is crisis after crisis for 2 million Palestinians trapped in this huge open-air prison.
This holy month is our time strengthen our relationship with Allah (SWT) to 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.
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 is like nowhere else in the world and despite their struggles, people will be trying practice their faith amidst a humanitarian crisis. They need our brotherhood and kindness more than ever.
