Zakat al-Fitr - also known as Fitrana - is an important part of Ramadan, and key act of charity, for it enables those less fortunate than ourselves to celebrate the day of Eid al-Fitr and mark the breaking of the fast of Ramadan with the rest of the Muslim community.
You may well have seen in the news about the sub-zero temperatures sweeping across the Middle East. As part of this the refugee camps in Syria, Jordan and Iraq are facing heavy snow storms. Your donation at this time will be greatly appreciated and will help alleviate the suffering being faced.
The Hope Centre is caring for the vulnerable children of the Zaa’tari camp through the provision of long-term physical and mental health solutions.
Due to the ongoing conflict and destabilisation of the country, millions have fled Syria to find safety from the violence in neighbouring countries such as Jordan. Over 2.3 million people have left Syria.
Over half of these refugees are children.
Through our partnership with the Martin James Foundation, together we have helped to set up the Hope Centre within the Zaa’tari refugee camp in Jordan, the first primary care centre aiming to bring together both physical and mental health care to provide a complete solution.
It is a comprehensive rehabilitation centre for children and activities include providing physiotherapy, occupational therapy, audiology therapy, speech therapy and psychological support.
The Hope Centre aims to care for the vulnerable children of the Zaa’tari camp through the provision of long-term physical and mental health solutions. Aiming to care for not only the needs of vulnerable children but also their families the centres has a dedicated team of doctors, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, audiologists, speech and physical therapists to provide immediate and long-term care facilities.
With many of these children having been displaced due to conflict, providing psychological care is as important as caring for immediate physical problems to ensure that children are able to move forward from this difficult start in life.
This is one of the countless examples how your support has helped make a difference to the lives of countless people.
