Our friends are the family we choose, the people that we pick out to surround ourselves with. Friends can enrich our lives and make things that little bit easier – the best of friends are always there to support us in times of need. However, for some people, friendship is out of reach.
Many refugees have had their lives torn apart. In fleeing their communities and home countries, refugees face their families being split up and friends lost. Many will find themselves in an unfamiliar country or a refugee camp, surrounded by strangers and completely alone.
Count Your Blessings
Through our refugee appeal, Islamic Help is doing all that we can to alleviate the burdens placed upon these people. When family and friends are gone, life can be extremely lonely. That is why we are aiming to reach out to as many refugees as possible, providing families, individuals and orphans alike with vital support and care packages. Containing food, clothing and necessary medical supplies, these care packages are a literal lifeline for many people in need.
Closer to home, it is important to stay humble and appreciate the many blessings that we often take for granted within our own lives. Even things as straightforward as having clean water to drink and plentiful food to eat are things we must be thankful for. After all, many people across the world lack even a roof over their heads at night, which is why we must count our blessings in order to truly appreciate just how lucky we are.
Join Our Refugee Appeal
Sitting comfortably at home, surrounded by your family and friends, it can sometimes be difficult to imagine just how difficult life can be for those in need. However, it is vital to never take your loved ones for granted – make sure that you take the opportunity to spend time bonding with them whenever possible.
This love and appreciation for the people who matter most in our own lives can be used to fuel your generosity and giving towards vulnerable people across the world. Join us in our fight to provide help to as many people in need as possible; our refugee appeal simply will not be as effective as it has the potential to be without the assistance of our generous supporters.
Charitable giving is interlinked with our own good fortune. Since we are in a position to be able to help others, it is our duty to take this blessing seriously.
