The Africa Federation Secretariat is calling upon members of our community to contribute generously towards the Syrian Refugee Appeal 2013 launched by the World Federation.

Recent news from the UN state that over 1.2m people have been displaced from their homes in Syria. Many have fled to the neighboring countries of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. As the crisis in Syria continues, the UN estimates that by the end of 2013, over 3.5m Syrians will have been displaced from their homes. These are shocking statistics and we must try to do everything that we can to help those affected.

The World Federation is already supporting a number of families currently in Lebanon who have been displaced as a result of the current situation in Syria.

A number of micro-financing projects are also being supported to allow individuals to re-start their own businesses that had been lost when they left Syria and to begin earning independently again.

The World Federation will also be sending Ramadhan Relief Funds to Syria we request all our Jamaats and members of the community in Africa to support the World Federation initiatives and raise funds for this cause.

The Funds collected by the Jamaats should be remitted to the AFED Secretariat Office in Dar-es-Salaam which shall be then be sent to the World Federation.

Let us all together raise our hands in prayers and supplications to Allah (swt) in this blessed month with the Wasilah of our Aeema-e-Tahireen (as) that peace and harmony prevails in Syria and all parts of the World.
