Ramadan In Syria

Since 2011, Syria’s special Ramadan charm has been largely lost as hunger and great sadness casts a dark, depressing shadow over the country. The eight-year war in Syria has completely shattered livelihoods making food insecurity rife throughout the country. Facing a daily fight for survival due to poverty, famine and war, the people of Syria are in dire need of our support this month. We will be working long hours this Ramadan making sure thousands of families across Syria have a meal to eat at sunset. Today exists a shocking misconception that the conflict in Syria is drawing to a close but this is far from the truth, in fact, 11.7 million Syrians are in dire need of humanitarian assistance and 6.5 million are food insecure.

We are located in areas where most charities cannot reach, distributing hot meals, water and food parcels to Syria’s forgotten families. Donate now and help stop the pain for some of the world’s most desperate people.

Let our daily fasts serve as a reminder of those who are less fortunate this month and open our hearts to help stop the pain across Syria. From everyone at Syria Relief, we wish you a peaceful, beneficial month. Find out how your Zakat and Sadaqah could be the help we need to ensure families in Syria will eat this Ramadan.

Feed famalies across
Syria this Ramadan

Millions of families who have been forced from their homes are struggling to find food for their children. There is now an 800 percent rise in the price of bread, leaving families no option but to rely on handouts from charities. An estimated 83 percent of Syrians live below the poverty line. A monthly food ration with staple items costs at least 80 percent of an unskilled labourer’s monthly salary and 50 to 80 per cent of a public service employee’s monthly salary. Before the war, Syria welcomed more refugees than any other country. Once a country of such giving, they are now the ones in need.

This Ramadan, we are located in areas where most charities cannot reach, distributing hot meals, water and food parcels to families who do not have the means to eat this Ramadan. £250 will provide five families with food packs containing a selection of staple ingredients needed to prepare balanced meals for iftar and suhoor this Ramadan. The lack of reliable, clean water in Syria is particularly worrying during the month of Ramadan and often goes unnoticed as other charities focus mainly on food. With a donation as little as £10 you can provide clean water for a family of five for the month of Ramadan. Facing a daily fight for survival due to poverty, famine, disasters and conflict, the people of Syria are in dire need of support. We will be working long hours this month making sure thousands of families across Syria have a meal to eat at sunset.

What is
Fidyah & Kafara?

Fidya is paid in circumstances when an individual is unable to fast. These circumstances may include the individual being of old age, reliant on medicine, or being permanently ill (physically or mentally). In these cases, the individual is liable to feed 1 person for every fast missed.

Kaffara, on the other hand, is paid as a penalty for leaving or breaking a fast intentionally. Kaffara is applicable on the individual due to any of the following reasons – eating or drinking during fast, engaging in sexual activities, physically or verbally hurting someone deliberately. The penalty for breaking the fast is a payment, in addition to keeping fast in a later stage. If the fast cannot be kept, the individual is liable to feed 60 people for every fast missed or broken.

Give your Fidya and Kaffara with Syria Relief. We will make sure to fulfill your religious duties by helping the most vulnerable Syrian families, who do not have proper food to eat, clean water to drink and a permanent shelter to live under.
