Eye Care for the Poor

Eye care for the poor

In most third world countries, most eye care facilities are based in major towns and cities, despite the fact that most of the population live in rural areas. In rural areas, there is a lack of health services and they very rarely have the capacity, skills or equipment to diagnose or treat eye health issues. Consequently, people living in rural areas must travel long distances to access eye care services. Most people are unable to travel to get help – many simply can’t afford the expense. Traditional women are particularly disadvantaged as they are not expected to travel alone.

Save the eyesight of the poor & needy

Not all cases of blindness are fatal. Most cases of blindness are treatable or avoidable. In third world countries, many people do not get eye care due to their inability to access eye care services, lack of trained eye care personnel, and inadequate equipment to treat the people.

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.

Dabbagh Welfare Trust offering free eye care treatments for the poor

Unfortunately, in many third world countries, hundreds of people go blind every day, often from preventable causes like cataract. People in Western countries have ready access to cataract surgery, but in third world countries, many people don’t.

With your help, Dabbagh Welfare Trust can help restore the eyesight of the poor – for free.

Why spend on the poor & the needy?

They ask you (O Muhammad) what they should spend in charity. Say: ‘Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travellers in need. Whatever good you do, God is aware of it.”(al-Qur’an 2:195)

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that The Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alaiyhi wasalam) said, that Allah said, ‘O son of Adam! Spend, and I shall spend on you.” (al-Bukhari)
