Gaza Humanitarian Crisis

Due to a 15-year blockade, Gaza has become one of the world’s biggest humanitarian crises. The people of Gaza are struggling to survive, with over 2 million people food insecure, only 60% of the water safe to drink, and over 1 million people living in inadequate housing. The people of Gaza are also restricted in their freedom of movement, making it difficult to access basic necessities. The situation is particularly dire for widows and orphans, who are often the most vulnerable members of society. The purpose of this writing about the Gaza Humanitarian Crisis is to highlight the severity of the situation and how and why we should help.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Dabbagh Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Dabbagh Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dabbagh Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Dabbagh Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Dabbagh Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Orphans

Widows and orphans in Gaza are facing an especially difficult situation. They are the poorest and most marginalised members of society in Gaza, and they are disproportionately affected by this humanitarian crisis. Many widows and orphans have lost their homes, their livelihoods, and their loved ones. They are struggling to survive, and they need help from people like yourself.

Gaza Humanitarian Crisis: Why they need our help?

  • 80% of the population in Gaza requires humanitarian assistance.
  • The Gaza economy has completely collapsed.
  • The healthcare system in Gaza is struggling to meet the demands.
  • The education system in Gaza is under imminent threat.
  • The environment in Gaza is unsuitable for human habitation.
  • A significant majority of the Gaza population suffers from mental health issues.
  • The constant threat and risk of violence and conflict are major contributors to social problems in Gaza.
  • The future of the people of Gaza is uncertain, with little hope for improvement in sight.

Conclusion

The Gaza Humanitarian Crisis has left its population battling for survival. With more than 2 million people facing food insecurity, lack of access to safe drinking water, and over 1 million residing in substandard housing, the situation is alarming. On top of all this 15-year blockade has completely destroyed the economy and social system. In such a dire situation imagine the lives of thousands of widows and orphans. May Allah make it easy for the people of Gaza. Aameen
