Rohingya Crisis Appeal – Help Us Save Lives

In 2017, more than a million Rohingya Muslims fled violence, persecution, and daylight human rights violations in Northern Rakhine State in Myanmar. Right now Rohingya Muslims are the most oppressed community in the world. They are stateless and no country is willing to accept them. Dabbagh Welfare Trust is working in the heart of Rohingya Camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. We are delivering life-saving food & water aid to thousands of families. We need urgent donations for our Rohingya Crisis Appeal so we can continue providing food to our brothers & sisters in need.

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.

Cox‘s Bazar: The world’s biggest refugee settlement

Cox’s Bazar: an area once known for its markets & sandy beaches, is now in the news for being home to over half a million Rohingya Muslims. Makeshift settlements, overcrowded camps, and lack of hygiene – hundreds of people are losing their lives daily due to preventable diseases.

  • Over 1.27 Million Rohingya Muslims are Displaced inside and outside Burma.
  • More than 50% of the Displaced are Women and Children.
  • Over 1 Million are in the World’s Biggest Refugee Camp in Bangladesh

Escape from death into a death trap

Fleeing from the violence in Myanmar, many Rohingya Muslims knew it would not be an easy life outside of their homeland but they never envisaged such horrible conditions as they are facing in refugee camps in Bangladesh.

An outbreak of infectious diseases is a common occurrence in these camps and hundreds lose their lives from preventable diseases. There is limited access to clean drinking water, food, and basic healthcare. Rohingya people have saved themselves from the brutality of the Myanmar state but they are on the brink of death & serious illnesses due to the conditions in Cox’s Bazar refugee camps.

It is our Responsibility to Help the Ones in Need

Islam teaches us to help those in need as it is a great act of worship and kindness. Both the Quran and the Sunnah (Hadith) mentions the virtues of helping other in numerous places. Here is an Ayah and a Hadith that specifically mentions the great reward for helping your fellow Muslim brothers and sisters in need:

“Charity is for those in need, who, in Allah’s cause are restricted (from travel), and cannot move about in the land, seeking (For trade or work). The ignorant man thinks, because of their modesty, that they are free from want. Thou shalt know them by their (unfailing) mark: They beg not importunately from all the sundry. And whatever good ye give, be assured Allah knoweth it well.”

Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 273

This Ayah highlights the importance of giving charity (Zakat) to those who are in need and unable to earn a livelihood due to restrictions, highlighting that charity is a means of recognising and alleviating their suffering.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said,

“Whoever alleviates the need of a needy person, Allah will alleviate his needs in this world and the Hereafter. Whoever shields a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the Hereafter. And Allah will help his servant as long as he helps his brother.”

(Sahih Muslim)

This Hadith beautifully illustrates the concept of mutual support and assistance in Islam. It promises divine help and support to those who aid others, emphasizing the virtue of helping those in need, especially fellow Muslims.

The Rohingya Crisis has become worse in recent months

With such a large number of people living in such a small area. Events like fire, flooding, and cyclones will cause huge damage. Every time a natural disaster hits the Rohingya Refugee Camps hundreds lose their lives and thousands lose what they call home.

In one example, in March 2021, the Rohingya Crisis intensified when a massive fire swept through Cox’s Bazar. It destroyed over 10,000 shelters, food distribution centres, clean drinking water, and sanitation facilities. Over 50,000 people became refugees in the refugee camp. Subhan’Allah

This incident highlighted the fragility of life in these camps.

Why should you donate to the Rohingya Crisis Appeal?

Right now over 900,000 Rohingya Muslims are refugees in Bangladesh. Under Bangladesh law, they are not allowed to work and, therefore cannot provide food & clean drinking water for their families. Without international aid and support from charities like Dabbagh Welfare Trust thousands of Rohingya Muslims would die within days. Rohingya Emergency Appeal is one of the most worthy charity appeals which deserves your donations. Donate generously towards our Rohingya Crisis Appeal and help us save lives in Rohingya Refugee Camps.

£100 – Financial Aid (Zakat) for a Family

Our Donation Policy

Our donation policy makes sure that 95% of the donations go to the causes we are supporting and only 5% goes towards the marketing and administration of all activities.

We work closely with our offices and partners on the ground and can respond in a holistic, transparent and accountable manner, which makes a lasting difference to the communities we work with.

Why not a 100% Donation Policy?

Just to clarify Dabbagh Welfare Trust does not employ anyone. So the question is why not operate a 100% Donation Policy? The answer is to stay on the safe side. We cover all our administrative and marketing expenses from gift aid claims however to give ourselves leeway, we have kept a 5% allocation from the donation amount but rest assured every single penny of your donation goes towards the charity’s operations and projects. If our expenses are lower than the gift aid claim amount then all extra funds are added to the charity funds which in some years makes it a 100% donation policy, however, to stay safe we always advise our donors that our official donation policy is 95%.

How your money is spent?

At Dabbagh Welfare Trust, we deliver your donation in an efficient and wholly accountable way.

Transparency is important to you and to us. We do everything we can to reduce the costs of delivering our projects so that at least 95% of your donation will benefit communities directly.

If you donate £100 to the Gaza Emergency Appeal, £95 will go directly to Gaza to provide food, water, winter and financial support. The remaining £5 will be used to raise more funds and cover any administrative costs.
