Charity Week 2020: 26th October to 1st November

A staggering 1 in 5 children worldwide live in extreme poverty. And that’s why Charity Week is so important!

A 100% volunteer-led campaign in support of orphans and vulnerable children, Charity Week last year raised a monumental £1.35 million to help children across the globe in desperate need of our support.

Running from 26th October to 1st November, this yearly week of action is the time when we call on YOU to get online, get outdoors and get fundraising to help children in need!

SubhanAllah, each and every year YOU come up with even wackier, unusual and fun ways to raise money for vulnerable children all over the globe.

Charity Week 2019: You save lives

Last year, your generous donations helped us to deliver emergency and long-term care to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

Click below to find out how the incredible £1.35 million you donated helped to save and transform lives.

Orphan Sponsorship in South Africa, Sudan, Gaza and Pakistan

Charity Week continues to support existing one-to-one orphan sponsorships across the world. Your donations enabled us to provide 40 more sponsorships in South Africa and Sudan, providing food, clothing education and healthcare.

Emergency response in Idlib, Syria

With the conflict continuing to destroy lives, Idlib saw a second wave of displaced arriving in the city from December 2019. This was on top of the 1.5 million displaced already taking refuge there.

Money raised from Charity Week has contributed to providing vital materials to help children survive the harsh circumstances, including emergency shelter, food, clothing and medical care.

Children’s health care in Gaza

1.5% children in Palestine are disabled and just over half of them live in families that need financial assistance. Our project supports 500-700 disabled children and their parents, improving 10 centres of special education and a total of 50-70 teaching staff.

This project supports necessary rehabilitation works, providing centres with adequate, sufficient and sustainable resources, furniture and equipment. In addition protocols and manuals are being updated and taught in consultation with specialised experts in this field.

Eradicating Hepatitis in Pakistan

Your critical donations are helping orphans and children in poverty to be tested for Hepatitis. Those suffering from the disease are then being provided with the appropriate medical care.

The further spread of the disease is being mitigated with a tailor-made awareness campaign focusing on at-risk communities. Working with community groups for local solutions will help to ensure that the spread of the disease can be slowed and eventually eradicated, insha’Allah.

Enhancing Primary Health and Education for Children in Niger

Your support helps fund our critical work providing safe clean water for communities, new schools, critical health care for disabled and disaffected children and much more!

You’re helping to provide three classrooms, toilets and school equipment in the impoverished region of Tillabery. Alhamdulillah! Thank you for your support.

SubhanAllah, such great work but there’s still so more that needs to be done.

So this year, let’s make history and raise even more. Get involved and help save lives!
