Winter Care Drive 2021

Winter is almost here and it’s time to 

Give the Gift of Warmth!

Palestine Emergency Appeal

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:

“The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari 2586]

 With the escalations in Palestine since May 2021, many civilians were forced to endure several consecutive days of intense bombardment, resulting in over 232 Palestinians killed (including 65 children), and over 1900 people injured. The damage also caused many infrastructures to collapse leaving thousands of families displaced.

Al Huda Institute and Elementary School partnered with Islamic Relief to provide the much needed support to those affected by this devastating conflict.

With your help, we were able to raise $18,424 to support our brothers and sisters!

How did your donations help them?

  • Food vouchers or packages were provided to 2000 displaced families in the Palestinian Territories and Gaza Strip
  • Urgent medical aid was delivered to 7 health facilities in coordination with Central Drugs Store at the Ministry of Health

Please Note: This campaign is now closedAll donations made to this campaign were tax deductible. Islamic Relief Canada will be issuing a tax receipt for all donations made to this appeal. You will receive your receipt at the end if this fiscal year.
