Syria Iftar 2016

Last Ramadan, in 2015, Al Ihsan Relief (AIR) provided Iftar for 300 refugee families in the Syrian city of Darkoush. Through your generous contributions, some 2000 people, most of whom are women and children were provided a complete Iftar and other basics in the month of Ramadan. In Darkoush, apart from the war, there is an acute shortage of electricity where almost 100% of people have no access to power. May Allah Ta’ala accept your contributions and alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.

Correspondent from Lebanon - Since March 2011, thousands of Syrian refugees have been relocating to neighbouring countries such as Egypt, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon. Lebanon is the largest per capita recipient of refugees anywhere in the world. Although it is not in a position to support the Syrian refugees without substantial international assistance, Lebanon is the only country in the region that is keeping its borders open due to humanitarian concerns. Therefore, it is unthinkable that it should bear the brunt of this pressure without massive international support.
