Don't Leave Them Out in the Cold

‘On the authority of Abu Sa‘id al-Khudri (ra) that the Prophet (saw) said, “The winter is the spring of the believer” (Ahmad)

During winter months, underprivileged families face the cold season without food, heating, warm clothes and blankets.

As if the daily struggle of surviving a disaster and poverty is not enough, the winter brings with it additional challenges for internally displaced people and refugees in Syria, Afghanistan, and Turkey.

When temperatures fall below zero, the most vulnerable are at risk of serious illnesses and even death. They rely on the generosity of people like you to keep them warm and safe.

A family relief pack can protect a vulnerable family from bitter winds, snow, and torrential rain. Stoves, heating, blankets, and clothes can keep refugees warm during the long cold nights. Nutritious food can give malnourished children the strength they need to ward off infections.

The reality is, without your help, these people may not survive. Whether it’s refugees in tents or people on the streets, your donations will be a lifeline for thousands of people.

We will be distributing winter relief kits throughout the winter months. On the authority of Abu Sa‘id al-Khudri (ra) our Prophet (saw) said, “The winter is the spring of the believer.” (Ahmad). This season allows us the opportunity to focus on our ibadah, give Sadaqah and help those in need.

Taiba's daily fight for survival

Taiba is a widow with 5 children. She used to run a business with her husband in the Golan Heights, Syria.

When the war first began, they would hear news of the conflict in other parts of Syria. They could sometimes hear bombs in the distance, but they never thought the conflict would impact them.

Struggling through the winter alone

One day, her husband left home to buy bread in a different village where he went missing. To this day, she has no idea what happened to him.

For the safety of her children, especially her vulnerable daughters, she was forced to flee Syria as a refugee.

Keep Taiba and her family warm and alive this winter

Now Taiba is the sole guardian of five young children, all of whom are dependent on charity for the most basic supplies like blankets and coats to protect them from the snow, and a stove to warm the tent they call home.

Without nutritious food, thick blankets, and winter clothes to shield them from the bitter cold, her children could have died or become seriously ill.
