Emergency Response – Target £30k
SYRIA & ROHINGYA
Type: Zakat, Sadaqah, Lilah
Riders of Shaam have chosen to provide emergency funds for Syria and Rohingya. With the help of Penny Appeal, we have set ourselves a £30,000 target where these funds will provide food parcels, clean water, medical supplies and assistance and also shelter for the people of Syria and Rohingya. It goes without saying that Syria is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time and the UN calls the Rohingya community one of the world’s most persecuted minorities.
Rohingya: For four long years, hundreds of thousands of Rohingyan people have been internally displaced within Burma. Living in makeshift camps, they are dependent on aid for all their basic needs – food, water, shelter and medical care.
Syria: The children of Syria are growing up surrounded by destruction, disease and death. More than 80 percent of Syria's children have been injured, and around 3.7 million children have been born in the past five years amidst the ongoing conflict, meaning they have never known peace.
