Are we going to continue our silence and inactivity and allow this humanitarian crisis to explode into the worst humanitarian disaster that this civilization has ever experienced or can we support our local partners and provide the critical care, nutrition and shelter that is required in and outside Syria. Your contribution, however small, will make a huge difference in the lives of these destitute and displaced population.
Our partners IMA Lebanon, Arab Medical Union, DWW Turkey, Gift of the Givers are working frenetically in different regions of Syria providing nutritional support, clothing and shelter, medical care and support. You can become part of this mission by donating generously in any form: financial, humanitarian aid, health kits, medical missions or just a prayer for an end to this carnage.
Please assist us in relieving the suffering of this forgotten nation. Donate generously to the attached banking accounts or your local IMA. Your reward for saving a life with your contribution is Jannah itself, Insha’Allah. May Allah (SWT) have mercy on us all and save our Ummah from this devastation and destruction wherever it is found. PLEASE DONATE!
