A feeling of deep sympathy and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others, accompanied by a strong desire to help those in need.
The ability to have compassion and empathy for humanity is a sure-fire way of increasing your own happiness, as well as of those around you. Acting with love, trust, integrity, and understanding is part and parcel of showing compassion, and we believe that you can never have too much of these things.
Here at Human Relief Foundation, we focus our work around those in need by working within their communities, assisting them to rebuild their lives using long-term sustainable solutions that work for them – and it feels great.
Whether you are giving your time by volunteering or helping us by sponsoring an orphan, you, too, could be making a difference and changing lives this Ramadan.
When you go out of your way to help others, it comes from deep within your heart. Acts of human kindness and generosity of the spirit and soul are so inspiring to be around and a part of, that you can feel it change you for the better.
If you need any more reasons for developing your compassionate side, here are just a few to get you started…
- The more you help others, the more likely you are to receive help when you need it the most
- The more you help those around you, the happier you will feel as a result. You will feel yourself smiling more and radiating happy thoughts – and that feeling is catching!
- It helps you develop valuable life skills and experiences, expanding your horizons along the way
- Most importantly of all, you will make a significant difference to the lives of those who need it most right now
Consider your charitable acts of compassion as a means of sharing the love you have inside for the world, sharing it one good deed at a time this Ramadan.
When you help humanity alongside us here at Human Relief Foundation, you are doing so much more than sponsoring an orphan or helping a vulnerable family; you are assuring these people that their lives matter, that their situation can change and that they are not alone.
