#Let’s Love for Others What We Love for Ourselves

09 May 2018

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) told us that the test of our faith was whether we loved for others what we love for ourselves. In a world of consumerism, where we chase after every fleeting luxury, Ramadan gives us a moment to think about those who do not even have the means to eat the next meal. Ramadan encourages us to reconsider our lives of luxury and to realise that our privileges are a test. Each Ramadan, the Al-Imdaad Foundation provides the opportunity for us to reach out to others and to show...


Clothe Syrian Orphans and needy children for Eid

28 May 2018

This year will be the 7th successive Eid since the beginning of the Syrian uprising and conflict. In these years, most Syrian children have known only war or refugee status have not experience what it feels like to celebrate Eid in their own country. Some 8.4 million Syrian children have been affected by the war and many are living as refugees with single mothers who can scarcely afford monthly meals, let alone a new set of Eid Clothes. For this reason, we are continuing our Eid Clothes project...


East Ghouta Crisis and IDP Relief

27 Feb 2018

Al-Imdaad Foundation launched an emergency appeal to respond to the needs of the besieged people of Eastern Ghouta in late February 2018. Since February 17th, 2018, the Eastern Ghouta area on the outskirts of Damascus in Syria was subjected to increased shelling and heavy bombardment in residential and civilian areas. This led to more than 500 deaths in the first week with thousands more injured and maimed. The area had already been under siege since 2013 and displayed some of the worst child...


Yemen Crisis

27 Feb 2018

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...


Rohingya Crisis continues

25 Jan 2018

Rakhine, the poorest region in Myanmar, was home to more than a million Rohingya who have faced decades of persecution in a country, where they are not even considered citizens. The Rohingya are one of the most helpless and forsaken peoples of the world. An ethnic minority disdained by the Burmese public and ignored by the Burmese government, the Rohingya do not have full citizenship rights. Before the most recent mass exodus, about 1.1 million Rohingya lived in apartheid-like conditions in...


Somalia Food Crisis 2017

31 Oct 2017

Somalia teeters on the brink of a devastating famine as a result of an extended drought. Consecutive seasons of poor rainfall have caused the death of three quarters of the county’s livestock which are the main source of income and livelihood for most the population. An estimated 6.2 million Somalians are at risk of a famine that could be even worse than the 2011 disaster which claimed the lives of more than 260 000 people. Currently, more than 363 000 acutely malnourished children and 70 000...

DRC Health Centre

09 May 2018

The Al-Imdaad Foundation officially opened a health centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo on March 18, 2010. The facility is based in Bukavu, capital of the South Kivu province, where political violence since the early 1990s continues unabated. The DRC's history is rife with civil war, violence and poverty, with 80% of the population living below the poverty line. Political unrest has resulted in 2 million displaced people from the DRC and neighbouring countries who are without access...
