In the spirit of Ramadan and giving back to those in need, we are pleased to announce that with every purchase made we will be donating 10% of your purchase to help aid those in the Palestine crisis.

Your purchase will make a difference to those truly in need of your support.

 

Background on the Child Refugee Crisis:

Decades of political instability have stifled economic development across Palestine. The vast majority of Palestinians, living inside the territories and living as refugees in neighboring regions, depend on international aid for survival. According to the World Food Program, well over 1 million people in Palestine are food insecure, including nearly half of the population of the Gaza Strip. Food expenses can easily consume more than half of an impoverished family’s budget. And work options are extremely limited: Unemployment is close to 20% in the West Bank and a devastating 42% in Gaza.

In addition, continued violence throughout Palestine has severely affected the most vulnerable section of the population — the children. Many Palestinian children suffer from psychological trauma.

The impact of your donation with Islamic Relief:

You can help keep Palestine moving forward. Ongoing violence in Gaza, and devastating poverty has left many in need of urgent assistance. IRUSA is working quickly to send food aid to those in need. As of 2018 over 90% of drinking water has been contaminated due to lack of proper filtration systems. Currently youth unemployment ranks in the highest in the world at 58% putting many at risk of never achieving self-sustainability.

Islamic Relief has been providing humanitarian relief in Palestine since 1994, and Islamic Relief Palestine opened its office there in 1998 so that long-term development projects could be implemented and overseen by people in the field.
