Clean Drinking Water Appeal
95% of Gaza’s water is deemed unfit for human consumption people are forced to drink bottled water which many Gazans simply cannot afford. Many risk infection and disease and use water which is heavily loaded with salts and other pollutants and they simply cannot afford water tanks which are refilled weekly at a cost. They cannot afford to give their children a glass of clean water in the smouldering sun in summer; they cannot afford to use clean water to cook a meal for their families. They use contaminated water to bathe, wash their hands and their clothes. We can make a difference.
Donate today to provide families, community water tanks, schools and mosques with clean drinking water
We provide water storage tanks for family homes and refill them on a weekly basis to ensure that the family have access to clean drinking water every day.
We also install large water containers in poor neighborhoods which are refilled daily. Anyone can use this water, an old man who finds himself thirsty, children thirsty from playing in the street, a family who live nearby and need some water for their evening meal.
Water tanks and dispensers are placed in school and mosques and are refilled daily so pupils and mosque goers have access to a clean drink of water.
Donate today to Gaza with the essence of life.
The recent floods in Gaza have made an already impossible situation even worse. Many homes are ruined, people are trapped in their homes for days on end and rely on relief workers who deliver food and water to homes in the city, and however, they are massively understaffed and have very limited resources to work with. The only way we can help is by donating so please give what you can.
Gaza Medical Aid Project:
With Gaza plunged into darkness for eighteen hours a day each day, hospital, clinics and medical centres across the city depend on generators which are so overused, they usually burn out very quickly. Operating rooms, medical equipment, ventilators, dialysis machines, scanners and more are useless, putting hundreds of patients and critically ill patients at risk.
We also provide funding for operations and procedures for sick and injured Palestinians in their time of need. Many are unable to afford basic medical attention, so when they are really sick, they rely solely on generous donations of others to get through difficult health.
This project allows us to assist in the cost of medicine for patients who require it long or short term but cannot afford the cost. We help them to maintain their health with desperately needed medication so they can be around to look after their families.
Orphan Eye Care Project:
Most orphaned children are living in poverty, with one or both parents gone, they are often left with little or no money for their everyday needs. As such, their eyesight is often overlooked, and they go to school struggling to see the board in their classroom. Through this project, we have eye specialist teams arrange eye tests and glasses if needed for orphaned children, forever improving their eyesight and quality of life.
Healthy Lunches Project:
We provide school children with a healthy, nourishing lunch at school. For many of them, this is the only hot meal they will have in a day. We make sure it’s a healthy one, giving them sustenance and filling them up
We provide school children with backpacks filled with school essentials like exercise books, stationary and more. Many are unable to afford this otherwise and rely on projects like these so they have a backpack to carry their books home, and a pencil to write their homework with.
Mother and Baby Project:
Most expectant mothers are unequipped for their baby’s arrival. What they view as luxury items are often foregone as they have very little money. We provide them with nappies, baby blankets and towels, clothes, formula milk and more so they can welcome their baby into a happy environment.
There are thousands of orphans is Gaza, and this number only increases with each war. Orphaned children are often taken in by family members when theri parents pass away, but when that family is already stretched, having an extra mouth to feed is a burden. We aim to keep children in a stable environment and keep things as normal as possible for them. By sponsoring an orphan, you can help make their everyday a little more bearable. You can make sure they get three meals a day, and go to school and live as normal a life as possible. Will you help an orphan today?
Self Employment Project:
We provide families with the opportunity to cater to the needs of their children by providing them with a food cart they can sue to sell various foods and use the money they make to support themselves. The scheme is great and allows families to get out of the cycle of depending on charity and live a dignified and proud life.
Olive Tree project
As part of our projects, we always aim to give needy people a chance to be self sufficient so they are not dependant on financial aid on a long term basis. The Olive Tree Project pays for an olive tree to be planted in Palestine. This allows farmers to harvest the fruit, produce and sell olive oil year after year. Eventually, we hope enough people will donate so they no longer need us.
One olive or fruit tree £10
JODAN & LEBANON’S SYRIAN AND PALESTINIAN REFUGEES
Medical care is expensive for many in the refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. While there are clinics trying to provide reduced cost or free healthcare, they are massively under resourced and struggling to get by. Your donations can buy medical equipment, beds and life saving drugs for those in need. Many who simply cannot afford expensive medical treatment for serious medical conditions are simply left untreated. Only with the generosity of others can such people be treated.
On one of our visits to the refugee camps, we encountered a 10 year old boy from Syria who was diagnosed with cancer. His treatment costs £4000 a week. His entire family live in a make shift room with a tin roof and no windows. Without the generosity of his medical sponsor, he would not be alive and yet through all of his troubles, he smiled and laughed with us. He told us his story and shared what little food he had with us. What can you do to help?
With no money, job or possessions to call their own, refugees in Lebanon and Jordan rely on the generosity of others to ensure at least one meal a day for their families. As they are refugees, many are not allowed to work, and are solely reliant on food parcels. There are hundreds of thousands like this, and sadly, if people do not donate, they may not be able to provide theri children with a meal when they are hungry.
Will you help provide a month’s supply of basic necessities for a family in need?
£35 per family.
Syrian Refugees have had their lives turned upside down due to a catastrophic civil war causing millions to flee the country. Leaving with very few or no possessions or money, they rely on every penny they can make as a family. Millions of children are now out of school, instead doing manual labour. Children as young as five are often seen selling on the side of roads to support their family’s income. The future generation of Syrians must be given an opportunity to go to school. Will you provide a child with the opportunity they deserve?
With the harsh and very wet winter this year, Syrians and Palestinian refugees living in tents found themselves immersed in mud in and around their tents. They are often stuck unable to get in and out of their makeshift homes. GRF’s Paving Project paves large areas surrounding tents, so regardless of the weather; families are able to access their tent safely.
Winter clothing Project:
With one of the harshest winters on record in Lebanon and Jordan last year, thousands were left with little or no warm clothing and blankets to get the through the winter months. There were many reported deaths, mainly children and the elderly whose bodies simply could not stand the cold. There are children without socks, gloves, coats or warm jumpers and blankets. We provide these and more thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
Fuel for Gas Burners
As the only heat source for thousands, gas burners are commonly used to keep warm and to cook with. Unfortunately, they require fuel and many are left with no heat when they cannot afford it. We supply and refill fuel tanks for burners so families can keep warm in the harsh winters.
Home Essentials Project:
There are hundreds of Syrian and Palestinian families who have built makeshift homes in a graveyard in Lebanon. They use scraps or wood, metal and cheap cement to make them. They usually have two families in one ‘house’ which consists of two rooms, one family per room. The rooms’ walls are often incomplete, covered with old material between them. There are no doors on the rooms or bathroom so no one is afforded privacy or modesty. Our project aims to provide these families with dignity. We put doors up, extend walls, add ceilings, tile kitchens so they are not built on just dirt, and allow family members to live under one roof but with boundaries and dignity.
Refugee camps rely on donations for clean drinking water. We provide water tanks and coolers so families can access clean water to drink and cook with. In the summer with no electricity, water coolers provide children and their families a cool drink on the scorching sun.
Women’s Education Centres:
We provide Syrian and Palestinian women with an opportunity to expand their learning. We teach them to read, write and broaden their understanding as living in the refugee camps leaves them with little or no education. They learn the basics so they can help their children with their schoolwork
India is home to the largest concentration of poor people in the world. In a country blighted by poverty, it is the young, the elderly and the widowed who are hit the hardest. Our widows’ project provides widowed women with food parcels so they do not go hungry. With no skills or income, and no husband to provide, they rely on the generosity of others to get by
We bring fresh water to villages which have no access to clean water. They usually have to walk for mils to fetch water every day, just so they can have a drink. We provide villages with communal water pumps so they do not spend hour each day walking in the heat, just for a drop of water.
Ramadan is the time to help those in need. Can we be content knowing that while we fast during the day, we have a meal to look forward to, whilst hundreds of thousands are going hungry? Let’s all share our Iftar. You can break your fast in the knowledge that a family in Gaza, Lebanon, Or Jordan is also enjoying a meal at sunset.
Provide a family with suhoor so they have the strength to fast the long summer days.
Qurbani is the traditional sacrifice of an animal for distribution to those in need on Eid. Can you help someone celebrate Eid with a meal which contains meat, a luxury some simply cannot afford?
We offer Qurbani in four countries around the world.
