The Cause: Save Lives in Beirut

Lebanon, a country already on the brink of economic collapse and famine, due to the combined challenges of a banking crisis and Covid-19 lockdown has now suffered a devastating shock with a huge explosion that has killed more than 100 people and injured over 4,000.

Around half a million children in Beirut are struggling for survival or going hungry as families are increasingly unable to afford basic food items and other essentials such as electricity, cooking fuel, hygiene items, medicine and water.

The Beirut explosion only makes things worse.

The Islamic Relief teams initial response in Lebanon is currently focusing on distributing ready to eat meals, hygiene kits and health assistance supporting people in urgent need of humanitarian assistance who are currently sheltering in communal buildings such as schools, mosques and churches.

Your efforts and donations will fund immediate emergency response and wider long-term rehabilitation!

Take Part and help us Save Lives today.

Fundraising Ideas*

Smarties: Buy 20 tubes of Smarties and give them to 20 of your friends. Your one condition? Once they’ve enjoyed the Smarties, they return the tubes back to you filled with as many £1 coins as they can collect in a week. You’d be surprised how much you can raise using this tactic!

Bake Sale: A true classic. How about adding a theme to your fundraiser depending on the cause you’re raising for? E.g. a blue theme if you’re fundraising to provide clean water. Or you could really go for it, sell other homemade delights alongside your delicious baked goods like milkshakes, smoothies or classic desserts (trifle, cake & custard etc.).

Car Wash: Probably the most fun thing you could do, and all you need is water, a bucket, a sponge and some car shampoo. You could do this at your school or workplace, or you could even ask a local business to let you use their grounds/car park. Try make it more interesting by doing it in fancy dress and get your family and friends in on all the fun!
