Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Humanity Care Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Humanity Care Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Humanity Care Relief to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Humanity Care Relief will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Humanity Care Relief receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

What is the scale of the crisis in Afghanistan?

If you see around the country, you can see poverty, hunger and separation. Our team has visited numerous remote villages and saw the state of people. There is sheer poverty everywhere. The poverty that we have never witnessed before, other than in Rohingya, Syrians and Yemeni Refugee Camps.

Right now, Afghans are struggling to survive. Hospitals are struggling to cope. The war is over in Afghanistan but hunger is a new threat to the lives of the most vulnerable in society. Millions of mothers are desperately waiting for nutrition packs for their malnourished babies.

Its like this every day. Its been this way for 4- 5 months. Hospital admissions are increasing. Most beds are full and wards are crowded. There’s no space inside.

We have nothing. We have no food. My children are sick. We don’t have money for food or medicine. Why isnt the world helping us?

Why donate for Afghanistan Emergency Appeal?

Over one million Afghan children are at risk of starvation. With international funding cut off following the Taliban takeover. Afghanistan’s aid-dependent economy is collapsing at an alarming rate. Life for many here has always been hard but with food prices and unemployment rising more families than ever recorded are going hungry.

Humanity Care Relief is on the ground in Afghanistan and in Afghan Refugee Camps near the Afghan-Pakistan border. Since international forces’ withdrawal, we have been helping hundreds of families with food aid. Throughout the winter months, we supplied food packs, organised hot meals and provided winter packs for hundreds of Afghan families. All this was made possible with your generous support. Donate now and help us feed Afghan families.

My message to the international community is: this is the worst situation we have faced. Please deliver humanitarian aid especially food, water and medicine to the people. Negotiate with the Islamic Emirates & release Afghanistan’s frozen funds.

Afghanistan Crisis – Save the Vulnerable

As an Islamic Charity in the UK, our focus has always been to take care of the vulnerable no matter where they are from. Since 2017, we have been helping the poor and needy across the world. Through Syria Emergency Appeal, we helped thousands of Syrian families in need, funds raised from Yemen Emergency Appeal were used to provide life-saving food and water aid to thousands of Yemeni families, Gaza Crisis Appeal helped us provide food, shelter and water aid to Gazan families and throughout the years, assisted Rohingya Muslims with the help of donations received via Rohingya Crisis Appeal.

Right now, Afghanistan needs us. The one thing Afghan families need now and for the months and years to come is food. Donate a food pack and help provide for an Afghan family in Afghanistan or in Afghan Refugee Camps.

The situation in Afghanistan is Deteriorating Fast

Even though Afghanistan is not in the news anymore, does this mean their situation has improved? The answer is no. The situation in Afghanistan is deteriorating fast. Not enough humanitarian aid is getting into the country. A country that has been heavily dependent on foreign aid for over three decades has been left alone without any support or help from the international community.

The scale of this Afghanistan’s problems means that much more is needed. The country needs continuous support from charities and richer countries.

Even before the Taliban take over, 75% of public spending in Afghanistan came from foreign grants. Every economist knew that this model is not sustainable. Now, Alhamdulillah, Afghanistan is free of violence, people’s lives and property are safe. However, this might not continue for long as there is hunger everywhere. As Muslims living in the west, whom Allah has blessed with wealth and security, it is our duty to take care of our brothers and sisters facing hunger, poverty, injustice and persecution.

We know we cannot do much about the situation in Afghanistan but we can help Afghans one family at a time. Insha’Allah one day we will see a prosperous Afghanistan.
