Syria Crisis Appeal

Eleven years of brutality – over half a million died, out of which over 12,000 were children. The Syrian crisis has had a profound impact on the lives of millions of Syrians. Over 6 million became refugees and had to leave their country. 6.3 million found themselves living in camps within their own country. This war has only brought nothing but misery and destruction for Syrian families.

Dabbagh Welfare Trust is working with Syrian families to help provide life-saving food and water aid. As part of the Syria Crisis Appeal, we need urgent donations to help thousands of families bring some stability to their lives.

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.

Syria Crisis – Help us save the children

The Syrian war has left the lives and futures of millions of children hanging by a thread. Many of these children were born just before or during this conflict. Throughout their lives, they have nothing but violence and destruction. These tiny minds probably think that’s how life is. Little did they know that only a decade or so ago their country was a peaceful place to live. Millions of tourists used to visit this land.

Today, the situation for millions of children and families remains precarious, over 90% of Syrian children need humanitarian assistance. In a country where 90% of its children are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, what hope will there be for many years and decades to come?

Donate generously towards our Syria Crisis Appeal and help us save the children of Syria.

Help Syrian Children & Families Fleeing Violence

Some areas of Syria are still in a state of war. Violence interrupts overnight in these areas. Families have to leave these areas and find safe-haven camps spread throughout the country and in neighbouring countries.

Dabbagh Welfare Trust is helping Syrian Refugee families by providing regular food aid and helping them financially from the Zakat Fund. For Syrian Refugee families, your Zakat brings joy and happiness. Our cash Zakat distribution is unique because it provides these families with an opportunity to buy what they need rather than living on what they receive i.e. food pack or a hot meal.

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.

Syria Crisis – How can I help?

It is always the people of intellect who can bring real change. If you are reading these lines then Insha’Allah you are one of those to whom Allah has blessed with a kind heart and intelligent mind. You can help the people of Syria By…

  • Making Dua for them – O Allah bring peace & prosperity to Syria
  • Raising awareness about the Syrian Conflict to friends, families & people of authority
  • Donating generously towards Syria Emergency Appeal to help provide food for Syrian families
  • Encouraging others to donate or fundraise for Syria Appeal

It will take years if not decades to rebuild Syria but Allah has given us a unique opportunity to gain extra reward by helping our brothers & sisters in Syria. As Muslims, we must donate as much as we can. £1 given towards Syria Emergency Appeal will not make any difference to our wealth but it could provide life-saving food to a person.

As Allah says “If anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole humanity.”

Qur’an 5:32

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 in Turkey, who engage directly with Syrian refugee families living there. Our approach is holistic, transparent, and accountable, making a lasting difference in the communities we serve.

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 Syria Crisis Appeal, £95 will go directly to Turkey to provide food, water, winter and financial support for Syrian Refugees finding refuge there. The remaining £5 will be used to raise more funds and cover any administrative costs.
