Provide water tanks for families which can hold 2,000 litres of water. The tanks will be handed over to the families who will then get water refills weekly. Without the tanks the families can only use small tubs or buckets for water, this project makes life so much easier.
Unfortunately many individuals have disabilities and challenges to get by daily, a £130 wheelchair will make life easier and bearable for the individuals.
By the fig and the olive and [by] Mount Sinai, And [by] this city of security [Makkah]. Verily, We have certainly created man in the best of stature. (Quran 95:1-4)
Give £6 and provide a Palestinian family with an olive tree, ensuring they reap the fruit of the olive for years to come. Olives are mentioned seven times in the Quran, and the Prophet (Peace be upon him) instructed us to use olive oil on our hair and skin.
Since the trees you donate will provide olives for years to come, this project is a Sadaqah Jaariyah, providing endless blessings, even after you are gone.
