Refugees in Germany have received food, clothing, hygiene items and children’s toys, thanks to Islamic Relief and our big hearted supporters.
Protracted conflict and instability in the Middle East and North Africa is fuelling the worst refugee crisis of our time. As humanitarian funding falls short, refugees are undertaking gruelling and dangerous journeys to reach safety in Europe. As part of our Mediterranean Refugee Crisis response, Islamic Relief is providing much needed aid to refugees in Germany. In four cities, 1,025 refugee families received 2.5 kilogram packages of Qurbani meat, to help them celebrate the important religious festival. In addition, nearly 5,000 Eid gifts have been given out: children in six cities received an Eid gift bag containing sweets and toys. The clothing bank run by Islamic Relief Germany is collecting donations from generous supporters to those in need. Pushchairs, household essentials and packages for new and expectant mothers are among the items being provided. Hygiene packs containing essential items such as shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes, towels and sanitary products are also being given out. Some 8,000 people are expected to receive a hygiene pack in the weeks ahead. Islamic Relief is assisting refugees in numerous other European countries such as Greece, Italy and Sweden as well as in the Middle East. We continue to call on EU member states to step up and deliver an effective and humane response to the crisis. Support our work: Donate now.
