A SANCTUARY OF HOPE
The ongoing war in Afghanistan has been forcing people to leave the security of their homes and abandon their families. Upon their return, they deserve a safe sanctuary.
“And Allah has given you of that which He has created, shelter from the sun; and has given you places of refuge in the mountains and has given you coats to ward off the heat from you, and coats (of armour) to save you from your own foolhardiness. Thus, He did perfect His favour to you, in order that you may surrender (to Him)” (An-Nahl: 81 – Meccan).
According to UNHCR, nearly 5.7 million refugees have returned to Afghanistan over the last decade.
Unfortunately, the lack of jobs in Afghanistan makes it hard for the returning refugees to earn a living, which often leaves them dependent on government help and emergency housing. And, when the resources are too scarce, they have to sleep outside, in temperatures below -26° in winter, risking their lives every single day
How Your Sadaqah Gives Them Shelter
The population of Kabul has tripled in the last seven years, being the fifth fastest-growing city in the world. As a consequence, the government’s land allocation scheme has already put thousands of families on the waiting list.
Makeshift camps have been created to ‘house’ the homeless, but many refugees choose to settle on mountain ranges and areas outside the official camps, where the winters are so harsh that emergency response is often needed to prevent casualties.
Since 2009, your Sadaqah has helped Aryana Aid supply tents, winter clothing, winter food and fuel to desperate Afghan families. We have also purchased resettlement land for those most in need.
Last year, your donations helped us accommodate 62 refugee families and provide medical aid supplies to 5,845 vulnerable individuals! Will you help again?
Ghulam’s story in his own words, as translated from Dari:
‘I am Ghulam Rasool, son of Ghulam Hazrat, and a resident of Kabul.’
‘I lost my house and my land in the war, and I struggled to support my family of ten because of our ongoing security crisis.’
‘I visited Aryana Aid after I was unable to find work, and told them about my problems.’
‘The charity’s volunteers helped me write an application for a small piece of land, which was granted to me by the committee. The charity also helped me build a house on the land that I had been awarded.’
‘I am truly grateful for the help and support given to me by Aryana Aid. My family and I will remember the charity in our prayers for the rest of our lives.’ By donating £130, you can provide a family–sized tent with a separate kitchen, washroom and sleeping compartment to accommodate 3 to 4 family members.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) As a Refugee
“And Lot believed him. [Abraham] said, “Indeed, I will emigrate to [the service of] my Lord. Indeed, He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise” (Qur’an, 29:26).
In Islam, we have the example of our Beloved Prophet (pbuh), who was forced to leave Makkah to save his own life. Persecuted for his unshakable Faith in Allah (swt), just like our refugees today, the Prophet is an example of courage, strength, and perseverance that we should all all strive for.
Follow in the Prophet’s footsteps by helping a refugee. With Aryana Aid, any donations go directly towards feeding, clothing, and sheltering our homeless refugees.
