Giving Your Sadaqah Donations During Ramadan

As the world enters the third year of a global children's crisis brought on by the collision of COVID-19, conflict, and climate emergencies, we also come together to celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan. As we celebrate, it is important to reflect on those less fortunate and struggling to put food on their tables.

Worldwide 1 in 6 children are living in the most lethal war zones like Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen. They are faced with displacement, hunger, poverty, fear, and the loss of healthcare and education. But, as the war on children continues, your Sadaqah can make a difference.

During Ramadan, and all year long, by donating what you can afford, you can help give hope to boys and girls around the world. Your Sadaqah donation can provide children with the food, nutrition and medicine they need to give them the best chance of a future they deserve.

Learn How Your Sadaqah Can Help

Your Sadaqah donations will support children and their families through the ongoing impact of the pandemic, and our programs in Bangladesh, Gaza, Somalia, Syria and Yemen – and other countries around the world. 

In Niger, a young girl stands against a brown cement wall on a bright day.

Dioura* had to flee her home when it was attacked by armed insurgents who set her school on fire.

She became one of five million children caught in a crisis across Africa’s Sahel region. A tragedy children had no part in creating.

Now Dioura’s family is starting a new life. But both of her parents are out of work and struggle to put food on the table.

"Sometimes we eat, other times we sleep with an empty belly – that's our life here," says Dioura.

Thanks to your support, we’re supporting Dioura to unlock her incredible potential by providing learning supplies and running catch-up lessons at her new school.

In Afghanistan, a girl smiles while kneeling in her home in a displacement camp for those who have fled conflict.

After Laila*'s dad was killed during fighting, her family packed up and fled to a camp in the far north.

Life in the camp is hard.

"One day my father went to the mountains. My neighbor went after the goats and saw my father lying there… What happens to someone when their father dies?"

Children played no part in the crisis in Afghanistan, but they are being punished.

We're setting up safe spaces where kids like Laila can learn, play, and get support to cope with the horrific situation they're being put through.
