Day in day out, the family have very little means to look after themselves. They struggle to buy food, water, clothes and blankets – daily necessities that we all need to keep as warm, safe and healthy as possible.
For Mariam’s mother, medical treatment is also essential. She’s travelled to Beirut – the capital of Lebanon – for treatment but she is still in need of care.
When we spoke to Ahmad, we could see that both he and his family were heartbroken by the situation and the difficulties they’re struggling with. However, all is not lost…
Islamic Relief is on the ground and alhamdulillah, we’ve been able to help.
We’ve been providing critical aid to Syrian children including Mariam, Ahmad and their families in Syria and neighbouring Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey throughout the nine-year conflict.
We’re distributing food parcels in Mariam’s camp and across the region to support Mariam and many more men, women and children in need.
But Mariam and Ahmed are not the only ones in need: seven million Syrians are registered as refugees across the Middle East and North Africa.
Since 2012, we’ve provided £320 million worth of aid to support Syrians in need. In 2019 alone, because of your donations, we helped over 2.3 million people affected by the Syrian conflict.
Throughout the month of Ramadan, Mariam and her family will now continue to receive food packages to help sustain the family, alhamdulillah! We’re also working to try and ensure that Mariam’s mother receives the medical care she so desperately needs.
Of course, none of this is possible without your help. So, from everyone at Islamic Relief, we’d like to say a massive thank you.
Your generous donations are enabling us to support Mariam and Ahmad and millions of others whose lives have been turned upside down by the conflict in Syria.
As we now welcome the blessed month of Ramadan, please help us to continue to provide Mariam, her family and millions of others like her with the assistance they so critically need.
This Ramadan, donate to Islamic Relief and help save lives.
