“These are tough times for women and children and for all civilians inside Syria,” says Ahmed Mahmoud of Islamic Relief Syria. “Some people have been displaced three, four or even five times in five years.”
Imagine fleeing for your life from one place to another, with young children or elderly parents in tow searching for a safe place to live, and then being forced by bombing to move again. Imagine this happening four or five times in as many years. This is the reality for many people living in Syria today.
As Ahmed says, “These people left their homes because of bombardments and moved to another location in camps. The camps were hit, so they moved to collective centres in schools. The schools were hit, so more people were injured and taken to hospital. The hospitals were hit, so where else would they go? We are trying our best to maintain our operations in this very difficult situation, because there is a desperate need that is increasing by the hour.”
In February a ceasefire was agreed, but not all parties to the conflict are signatories to the temporary peace agreement. The peace is fragile, and there are still huge needs for humanitarian aid.
Gather the rewards of Ramadan
The blessed month of Ramadan is the perfect time to help the people of Syria, who need your du’as and donations to help them through this month and beyond. Facing homelessness and illness and in some cases even starvation due to lack of food, shelter and medical facilities, Syrians are facing a daily battle just to survive.
Allah SWT says in the Qur’an:
“…if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.” (Quran, Verse 5:32)
Imagine the reward for saving a life…and then imagine the reward for saving a life in Ramadan, where good deeds are multiplied more than 700 times, subhanAllah!
Gather the rewards of Ramadan by donating your Sadaqah or your Zakat to the people of Syria now.
