Global Winter Campaign
Helping those in need, wherever they are Muslim Aid and all those who support us, provide relief around the world. Our Rucksack Challenge initiative is dedicated to helping the homeless in the USA. However, we also work in Jordan, Lebanon, Gaza, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Iraq, Bosnia and Syria.
THE SYRIAN CRISIS
We are currently working with families displaced by the Syrian crisis. There are 13.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Syria, 4.5 million of those in hard to reach and besieged areas. These people have lost their homes, their families, everything they own, they have no access to basic sanitation in many cases. They are living in complete poverty, with nothing certain or stable in their lives.
We are working to provide these people with the basics to survive and stay well. The main priorities and focus of efforts are in treating and evacuating the wounded, providing food, water, sanitation, medical help and shelter. The prices of basic, everyday essentials continues to rise, and with winter setting in, children and the elderly are even more at risk.

“I have 3 children, I don’t know where to go with them or how to feed them”
“I wish you could see the situation that we are in. We do not have any electricity batteries or generators”
HOW WE’RE HELPING
We are currently providing fuel to heat homes and shelters throughout the winter, as well as basic hygiene kits including sanitary, hygiene, cleaning and medical supplies to displaced families.
As the temperatures plummet, the lives of millions of people are at risk.
From right here in the states to across the world, too many people struggle each day in difficult conditions. As winter sets in, their lives are at serious risk due to a lack of protection, heating, shelter and food. From sub-standard living conditions, to temporary shelters, to the harsh realities of the cold streets, the winter weather is cold-hearted and dangerous to those already in desperate need.
Children, the elderly and those dealing with long-term illness are particularly at risk of hypothermia, pneumonia and starvation. Many will not survive to see a warmer day.
