“Those who spend their wealth (in Allah's Cause) by night and day, in secret and in public, they shall have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (Quran 2:274)
The month of March is forever imprinted on our minds as the anniversary of the Syrian crisis. In the last 6 years, the people of Syria have suffered from starvation, brutal winters, and lack of vital aid.
According to UNHCR and OCHA, there are more than 4.8 million registered Syrian refugees, and 13.5+ million people inside of Syria in need of humanitarian aid. The United Nations has declared the Syrian conflict “the worst of the 21st century.”
But there is hope.
Despite the suffering that has occurred, Islamic Relief USA has been committed to Syria since day one. In the last six years, we have provided food, medical aid, water, and winter items such as blankets, gloves, and socks to more than 9 million people.
Although we have helped many, more Syrians still need your help!
We are dedicating the month of March to the people of Syria and we’re calling it March Goodness. What is March Goodness? It’s a national event in which MSAs, masjids, and communities around the country will do their part in helping their Syrian brothers and sisters. You can skate for Syria, dedicate your birthday and donate all the proceeds to IRUSA, or you can try to break a Guinness World Record for Syria.
Make your campaigns unique to you. Regardless of the amount you decide to raise, big or small, know that any donation to IRUSA’s Syria program will bring vital aid to Syrians in need.
If you can’t create your own campaign for March Goodness, you can still donate to IRUSA.ORG/DONATE. We are all in this together, working together for a better world.
So Let’s March, March Goodness.
