After some hours, Atiq finished the Iftar distribution and every person had returned to their tents carrying their hot meals and food baskets, all except one little girl who was still waiting completely alone. Confused as to what was happening, Atiq asked the camp manager of the whereabouts of the child’s parents. The manager told him that this young girl arrived at the camp on her own and that she was in the care of staff in the camp.
For Atiq, the thought that this young girl, a child, was not only forced from her home but had made a perilous journey alone to a refugee camp and was now living in squalor without her parents, was too much to bear.
The worst thing about this story is the fact that this child is not alone. At Syria Relief, our team has a waiting list, brimming with names, of vulnerable children under 16. Each one of them is in a desperate situation and are waiting to be supported. For a single donation of £360, you can support a child inside Syria for one year.
Despite the efforts of so many charities this month, there are still thousands of children in desperate need. Don’t let this Ramadan pass you by without offering these children the support they need.
Good deeds undertaken on this night are better than (the deeds of) a thousand months.
The Prophet, peace, and blessings are upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate. Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5659
