Ramadan+

  • Zakat el Fitr
       x =

    Every adult, self-supporting Muslim with more food than they need must pay Zakat-el-Fitr (currently around EURO 4 or USD 7) before Ramadan ends.
    You can also pay on behalf of any dependents, and you are obliged to pay for any dependents that cannot pay themselves. With Islamic Relief, your Zakat-el-Fitr secures food staples for some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

  • Ramadan Food Packs

    The Ramadan project is implemented by Islamic Relief through food distribution activities during the month of Ramadan.
    Muslims from around the world donate money which is used to purchase essential food items which are divided into packs. The packs are then distributed to needy people in some of the poorest regions of the world on behalf of the donors.

Current Emergencies and appeals+

  • Nepal Emergency Appeal

    Shortly after 11am local time on Saturday, April 25, an earthquake struck the area between Kathmandu and Pokhara in Nepal. Measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, it was the worst earthquake experienced in Nepal for 80 years.
    Islamic Relief has responded to the emergency, and, after assessment, expects to distribute food, shelter, water and non-food items such as hygiene kits and kitchen sets to some of the 1.6 million people believed to have lost their homes. Support our emergency appeal.

  • Ebola Crisis

    The current outbreak of Ebola was declared in West Africa in March 2014, and has since spread quickly. Thousands have died to date. To assist affected communities and to help prevent the spread of the deadly disease, Islamic Relief is working with organisations who are operating in the region.

  • Syria Crisis Appeal

    Last year, the region saw the worst winter storm in 20 years. In December 2013, Snowstorm Alexa brought snow, bitter wind and sub-zero temperatures. Roads were blocked for five days, slowing emergency efforts to provide aid.
    This year, work has already started to hand out tarpaulin to block the wind, and blankets to help keep people warm. We hope to distribute gas heaters and cylinders, blankets, winter clothes, carpets and mattresses, as well as the food vouchers that we give out all year.
    Please help us to reach those who will struggle in the cold this winter; donate to our Syria appeal today.

  • Yemen crisis appeal

    Recent and ongoing military action is increasing in a country that has endured many years of internal conflict. In March 2015, conflict intensified and 14 of Yemen’s 22 governorates have already been affected, with hundreds of people killed, and massive country-wide displacement expected.
    Islamic Relief is distributing food, water and sanitation kits, as well as trauma and first aid kits to some of the thousands of people who have already been affected.
    Please help us to reach those who are struggling to survive; donate to our Yemen appeal today.

Ongoing Appeals+

  • Palestine Appeal

    Your donations to the Appeal for Palestine support our work to provide vulnerable families in the Palestinian Territories with much-needed humanitarian aid and assistance.
    Home to some 1.8 million people, Gaza is one of the most densely populated places on Earth. Development has been strangled by years of blockade and recurring outbreaks of conflict - the most recent of which killed more than 2,000 people and left tens of thousands homeless in a coastal enclave already suffering deep poverty.
    Islamic Relief, from its Gaza office, has been assisting affected families during the latest crisis. We are now focussing on supporting communities to recover from the conflict.

  • Myanmar (Burma) Emergency
