Where Will My Donation Go?
Islamic Relief is committed to restoring dignity and rebuilding lives for the people of Syria. Long after the cameras leave, we stay and develop long term projects that aim to uplift communities out of poverty.
Your donation will go directly to supporting the long term housing needs of families who have been displaced or impacted by the earthquakes in Syria. Our goal is to build a home for 350 families, will you join us?
Building Permanent & Earthquake-Resistant Shelters
You can support displaced families who are living in tents and temporary shelters, by providing them permanent and earthquake-proof homes in a prime location that ensures easy access to water, health facilities, and local markets.
In Dana, in the Idlib governorate and Aleppo, multi-storey apartment complexes are being constructed to house 350 families. Each complex includes 8 apartments, and each apartment has a layout of 2 rooms, a kitchen, and bathroom.
We follow a scholar-verified Zakat Policy to ensure your Zakat reaches as many poor and needy people as possible to transform their lives!
This ensures that Islamic principles are adhered to every step of the way, from project design and community fundraising discussions to project implementation.
Islamic Relief identifies those well below Nisab, working with the poorest of the poor and the most vulnerable. This includes orphan households, single female-headed households, people with disabilities, and the elderly.
You can trust that our Syria Shelters project is Zakat eligible, and is an important part of our most crucial work with communities in Northern Syria affected by disasters, poverty and war.
Donate with confidence knowing that your Zakat is going directly to uplift the most vulnerable families of Syria.
