Home to 1.8 million people, Gaza has faced successive conflicts that have worsened poverty within the enclave. The unemployment rate is a staggering 50 per cent, and nearly one in two families struggle with hunger or food insecurity. With little ability to pay for food and clothing to celebrate religious festivals, the burden often feels even heavier at Eid.

In 2016, an Islamic Relief Waqf project lightened the load for some of the poorest families – and brought smiles to the faces of 40 children on Eid ul-Adha. Thanks to our generous donors, we welcomed the families to one of the Gaza Strip’s biggest clothing stores – where they picked out, free of charge, new clothes to make the holy festival extra special.

“Marah is paralysed,” said Selmeya Al Dawabha as she chose clothes for three of her children.

“She was very happy when I told her that I’m coming home with new clothes. May Allah bless you and reward you for bringing happiness to the heart of a disabled child.”

The excitement of new garments meant that Amal Ibrahim Radwan’s daughter barely slept the night before their trip to the store. “She woke up very early in the morning!” said her mother. “I’m truly unable to express my thanks and gratitude.”

The difference between IWF and other organisations is that IWF will invest your donations and bring a sustainable return year on year and serve people indefinitely.
