Yemen Crisis

08 May 2019

Airstrikes, armed clashes and attacks on civilian infrastructure which have been going on since March 2015 have resulted in the world’s largest food security crisis and enabled the spread of cholera at an unprecedented scale. More than half of the Yemeni population is still suffering from deliberate targeting and other apparent violations of International Humanitarian Law. All of this makes the Yemeni crisis one of the world’s largest man-made crises, and one which has displaced over three million...

Flour-4-Syria

01 Nov 2017

Into the eight year of the Syrian crisis and still countless refugees and internally displaced Syrians are struggling to survive. Millions have taken refuge in neighbouring countries and for those displaced or living in towns and cities, many cannot meet their daily needs. The 2018 Syrian wheat harvest was the worst in 30 years making available supplies extremely limited. With wheat being the staple in the Syrian diet, the importance of daily bread for Syrian IDPs and refugees cannot be over-emphasised....


A NEW LIFE

27 May 2016

The siege over the Gaza Strip is continuing for the 8th consecutive year, and has devastated key sectors in the area. The blockade has also resulted in 90% of the people in Gaza Strip living beneath the poverty line and depending mainly on humanitarian aid for their needs. The Food insecurity rate has also spiked and currently reaches 57% across the Gaza Strip. Due to the sustained siege and recurrent wars, thousands of families are homeless and cannot even afford to secure the basic food needs...


Disability Centre in the Gaza Camp in Jordan

23 Nov 2015

The Gaza refugee-camp in Jordan is one of the poorest camps in the country with refugees mainly from the Gaza strip. Most refugees here have no ID permits and are unable to obtain employment within Jordan making their position especially vulnerable.

The centre was initially a UNHCR funded programme but funding was dropped leaving it unable to function effectively....

Make Orphans Smile

31 Oct 2017

The global population of orphans, at some 220 million is staggeringly high. Each day thousands are orphaned as a result of conflict and war, sickness, disease and starvation. If all orphans inhabited one country, it would be in the top 10 most populous countries in the world. These orphans often face discrimination and may become victims of human trafficking and child labour as they struggle to get by with no one to look after them. Their stories are stories of trauma and difficulty and many will...


Rebuild Gaza Campaign

19 May 2015

The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated places in the world with a total area of just 365 km2 where over 1.8 million people live. Palestinians are still suffering from devastating economic and social conditions brought about by waves of war and the ongoing blockade.

Halima Sa'diyya Orphanage for Syrian Refugees

15 May 2015

The on-going Syrian crisis has caused havoc in Syrian social life, tearing apart families and leaving millions displaced or seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. Many of these are women and children who have lost husbands and fathers and been driven far from any family or friends leaving them without any means to support themselves.

Tiny Hearts Orphan Village

03 Apr 2015

Turkey is now home to the largest number of refugees from Syria with many of these refugees being young children who have lost their families to the war leaving them with no one to care for them.

Because of the large number of orphaned children the Al-Imdaad Foundation and its partners in Turkey have initiated an innovative and exciting orphan project where a whole village of 31 villas...


Al-Imdaad Foundation Projects in the Balkans

31 Oct 2017

The brutal history of communism in Albania left a scarred population and a struggling economy with the highest rates of unemployment in Europe. Almost one in 3 Albanians lives in poverty especially in rural areas and up to 5% struggle to meet daily food needs. Certain minority groups are especially vulnerable, like the Roma people who often face discrimination and exclusion especially in the area of education where large proportions of Roma teenagers remain illiterate. The Al-Imdaad Foundation...


Gaza Water Filtration Plants

08 Jun 2018

After the most recent series of Israeli attacks the already scarce water resources in Gaza were even further limited due to the destruction to water and electrical infrastructure. Gaza’s only aquifer, the coastal aquifer has fallen to almost 15 metres below sea level resulting in the entry of sea water which has made it unfit for consumption or agriculture. In addition there is the threat that heavy-metals and other dangerous chemicals from Israeli munitions may have further contaminated Gaza’s...


Al-Imdaad Foundation Kenya

Kenya has been described as the hope of east Africa and has become a regional hub that promises growing development opportunities. However, poverty in Kenya is still a major issue with almost half the country living below the poverty line.

Climatic change and environmental issues like land degradation and poor water management make rural Kenyans especially vulnerable to poverty. In...


Al-Imdaad Water Well and Borehole Project

Jordan has always been home to a large number of refugees, in the past these were mainly people of Palestinian origin but in recent years the Syrian conflict has seen over 600 000 cross the border into Jordan.

Cape Town Water Crisis

02 Mar 2018

Three years of failed rains have created a crisis in the Western Cape with dams at critically low levels. Studies show that the period 2015-2017 was the driest in the area in the past 84 years, leading to the desperate situation we see today. Currently, communities in Cape Town are facing the looming threat of DAY ZERO, when taps will run completely dry and residents will be forced to queue in long lines. The social, economic, and consequences for quality of life, could be drastic. Al-Imdaad Foundation...


Back-2-School Campaign

07 Jan 2019

The beginning of the new school year is a time of mixed emotions. For some students it is a time of excitement for others it is a time of embarrassment and dread. Students who cannot afford stationery or school bags often feel very shy about their situation. These feelings can negatively impact on their concentration and overall performance. This is not even considering the actual negative effects their lack of stationery has on their ability to engage in their school day activities. Sometimes...


Local Emergency Relief

09 May 2019

Al-Imdaad Foundation teams operating from various local provincial branches regularly respond to small scale incidents that affect vulnerable communities.

South African Water Projects

Below average rainfall and dry, hot weather resulted in a crippling drought across many areas of South Africa. Even with rainfall in 2016 and early 2017, many dams remain far below capacity. Nationally the drought situation affected millions of households especially in the provinces of KwaZulu-Natal, Free State, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the North West. At its height, officials described the situation as the worst case of drought since 1982 with national dams at an average of only 54.9% capacity...


Make Breakfast Possible

09 May 2019

As it is often said, a healthy body is a healthy mind and a hungry stomach does not bode well for the absorption of information. Hungry learners often struggle to concentrate in class and visit the school nurse daily with head and stomach aches. Due to pangs of hunger, learners often feel sick and fall behind resulting in poor grades and a low pass rate. In order to address this problem, the Al-Imdaad Foundation, in consultation with food technologists, dieticians and nutritional experts have...

Through this project,...


Slice-4-Life

09 May 2019

As the cost of living soars and medical care becomes almost unaffordable, the queues at state hospitals lengthen considerably.

Launched in July 2010, the Al-Imdaad Foundation’s SLICE-4-LIFE™ project helps provide a small measure of nutritional comfort to thousands of patients across South Africa. The...


Social Welfare programme

There many people who fall through the cracks in society and struggle to get by day to day due to illness, disability, unemployment or social exclusion.
