Winter Emergency Appeal

As the Islamic empire grew during the caliphate of Umar ibn al-Khattab (Radhi Allah Anhu), Muslims came across different cultures, customs and weathers. One thing Arab Muslims felt was the harshness of winter outside of Arabian Pennunsila especially in countries like Sham (Syria) and Asian countries like Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, China, Mongolia, and parts of Afghanistan and India. This is why during his caliphate Umar (Radhi Allah Anhu) used to write to all his commanders and governors. He (Radhi Allah Anhu) used to advise them with the following advice:

“Winter, which is an enemy, has come, so prepare for it with wool, leather, socks, and blankets. Use wool as your under-clothing and leather as outer-clothing, because the cold is an enemy that enters quickly but leaves slowly.”

Following the advice of Umar ibn al-Khattab (Radhi Allah Anhu), Dabbagh Welfare Trust has launched its Winter Emergency Appeal. Donate generously towards our winter appeal and help keep the poor and the needy warm this winter.

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.

Our Winter Vs Winter of the Poor & the Needy

As Winter arrives, many of us living in the West, prepare ourselves by insulating our homes, making sure we have hot water, warm clothing, and food. Sometimes we forget that there are millions of poor families across the Ummah who will not have any of these blessings this winter. Like every conflict, disaster, or extreme weather change, this winter, the biggest losers will be women, children, the elderly, and the disabled.

People living in poverty or refugee camps do not have any extra clothes to stay warm during the winter. Due to the lack of warm clothing, heating, or blankets, many develop illnesses that end up taking their life.

By donating to Dabbagh Welfare Trust’s Winter Emergency Appeal, you can provide critical care for poor families this winter. Save lives this winter and donate a winter pack.

Winter Appeal for Flood Victims

Victims of Pakistan and Bangladesh floods need our help to survive winter. Donate generously towards our winter appeal for flood victims. Help us provide life-saving humanitarian aid to families, who will be spending this winter without food, warmth & adequate shelter. Life is sacred, together we can save lives this winter.

Pakistan Winter Appeal

If any of you have visited Pakistan during December and January then you will know how cold it gets during these months. Fog and sub-zero temperatures take life to an edge for millions of poor families. Like previous years, this winter Dabbagh Welfare Trust’s Pakistan team will be distributing winter essentials among the poor families. We need your support. Your support will help us continue providing warm clothes, blankets, and food for the poor and needy in Pakistan.

Give what you can to help save lives this winter.

Help keep a family warm in Pakistan this winter by donating a winter pack for our Pakistan Winter Appeal.

Winter and Syed Families

There are many Syed families living in poverty across Pakistan. We cannot give them Sadaqah or Zakat but we can give them gifts. Throughout the year, Dabbagh Welfare Trust helps a number of Syed families by providing food packs, building water pumps, giving gifts, or helping them set up businesses through our income generation programme. Many brothers and sisters helped Syed families through our Rabi al-Awwal appeal, although many of you help these families throughout the year by donating specifically for Syed families. We need your continuous support to continue supporting Syed families.

Gift a winter pack and keep a Syed family warm this winter.

Syria Winter Appeal

Makeshift tents, torn clothes, wet shoes – this is the reality of life in winter for millions of Syrian families. In Syria and refugee camps bordering the country temperatures fall below zero during the winter months. Making life even more difficult for millions of families.

Unlike us, millions of Syrian families do not have enough clothes to protect themselves from winter harshness.

Help save lives this winter – Donate winter pack for Syria

As part of our Syria Crisis Appeal, Dabbagh Welfare Trust has been helping hundreds of Syrian families. Our on-the-ground team provides families food packs, clean water to drink, and financial support for the widows and orphans. Donate a food pack or donate your Zakat to help a Syrian family.

Bangladesh Winter Appeal

As the weather takes a turn and temperature starts to drop below freezing, poverty-stricken families struggle to cope with chilly nights of winter. Inadequate winter clothing and nutritional food make the battle for survival even harder. Dabbagh Welfare Trust has been actively working across Bangladesh for over a decade. We have and are actively helping the poor and the needy with food, water, and financial aid.

Whether it is food packs distribution in Ramadan, helping widows and orphans with Zakat, building clean drinking water projects on your behalf as Sadaqah Jariyah, the Dabbagh Welfare Trust team has always been at the forefront of helping the poverty-stricken communities in Bangladesh.

This winter will be no different. We will In’sha’Allah be distributing warm clothes, winter blankets, jackets, jumpers, socks, hats, and gloves among the needy to help them survive the winter. Become a part of this great cause and donate generously towards our winter emergency appeal.

Gaza Winter Emergency Appeal

Gaza has been under blockade for more than a decade. Nothing can come in and go out without Israel’s permission. Over 80% of Gazans are heavily dependant on foreign aid and over 50% live below the poverty line which means they don’t even have enough money for 3 meals a day.

Winter brings its own challenges for many Gazan families. In such a small city with such a large population and limited resources. Food is the priority. However, food alone is not enough to go by during winter. People need clothes, jumpers, jackets, blankets, socks, gloves, and hats to survive winter.

Dabbagh Welfare Trust is helping to protect lives in the Gaza Strip this winter by providing the poor and needy with warm winter blankets, heaters, heating fuel, and essential winter clothing to help them protect themselves from the cold winter.

Donate a food pack, give the gift of water, donate a shelter pack or financially support a family through our Gaza Emergency Appeal. Donate now & save lives.

Winter Emergency Appeal UK

Being homeless is tough, but this is, even more, harder during the freezing winter season. There are thousands of homeless people in and around the Greater Manchester area. This winter Dabbagh Welfare Trust will be distributing winter packs for the homeless in Greater Manchester. This is our way of saying we care about you. We hope one day we don’t have to do this anymore but until then we will continue to do what we can.

Dabbagh Welfare Trust takes care of the poor and needy regardless of their gender, religion, or ethnicity.

Donate generously and support our winter appeal.

Poverty, Homelessness, and Winter

Most of us won’t know how it feels to be a refugee or homeless.

We thank Allah سبحانه و تعالى for blessing us with a house.

A house where we…

  • praise Allah سبحانه و تعالى for all His blessings
  • spend time with our family
  • create memories
  • relax, have fun
  • and most importantly stay safe from the harshness of weather in summer and winter

Unfortunately, for over 150 million around the world, there is no place called ‘a house’. They are living in shelters made with Tarpaulin (Tarpal), plastic sheets, or mud. These shelters provide no protection from extreme weather, especially in winter. Help save lives and donate to Winter Emergency Appeal. By donating to our winter appeal you will help us provide winter clothes, blankets, and heating fuel for the poor families in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Syria, Bangladesh, Gaza, and the UK.

Save Lives this Winter

People living in poverty and in temporary accommodations feel the sharp end of winter. A lack of food, clothing, fuel, and shelter makes it extremely difficult for them to protect themselves and their loved ones from the harshness of winter.

A very sad reality for millions of people this winter

  • There are over 1.6 billion people living in temporary shelters
  • Around the world, there are over 150 million people who do not have a home
  • Over 26 million people are refugees and living in camps
  • Over 45 million are displaced within their own country

We know we are not big enough to help millions but with your generous support, we can still help thousands. Donate generously for our winter appeal and save the poor and needy from the harshness of winter.
