This project is Zakat eligible and also a wonderful opportunity for Sadaqah Jariyah.
Years of war have caused millions to flee their homes in search of safety and left countless people in
urgent need of humanitarian aid in Syria. The Muslim Forum will be building safe and
secure homes for refugee families, improving lives with a clean place to live, helping to fight off
death from diseases, protection from the summer heat and harsh winter.
THE CURRENT SITUATION
Over 11 Years of Conflict in Shaam have meant millions have fled their homes, sometimes in the
middle of the night with no possessions and sought shelter in camps. Their homes are made from
sheets of tarpaulin and cotton sheets, and fail to keep out the bitter wind, rain, or snow.
In winter, those living in refugee camps and temporary accommodation fear for their lives. Winter
can be brutal, with temperatures falling well below zero and with snow and icy conditions. Without
secure housing and combined with the additional pressures and concerns, this will be the worst
winter of their lives.
Living in temporary tents and camps mean women and children are even more vulnerable. Without secure walls, doors or roofs, women and children lack the security and privacy to truly live lives with dignity and honour.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Zahra Hussain, Muhammad Asif Ahmed and Rubecca Butt from the Muslim Forum at Barclays are hiking up Box-Hill Surrey to help raise funds to help build secure homes for refugees in northern Syria, close to the Turkish border.
By sponsoring their hike, you can help create safe havens for those who have fled their homes and been displaced due to years of conflict. The homes will keep them warm and help provide the necessary amenities to live a sanitary, safe life.
For every £3,000 raised, a safe and secure home will be built for a family by the SKT Welfare team working on the ground. Each home will be built in one of the SKT villages and consists of two rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom with water.
We encourage you all to sponsor generously in showing your support for this groups bravery, whilst contributing to this worthy cause.
