Abdullah, 45 Years old.

Displaced Yemeni father who fled from Maqbnah district in Taiz to Al-Shaab district in Aden

Abdo described his life before as a peaceful life. He kept livestock and sheep and sold them in the local market in Maqbanah.

Three years ago, following an escalation of fighting and airstrikes near to his village, he left his home with his wife and eight children. 

‘’I had to sell my livestock and borrow some money to be able to escape with my family…’’ 

Just before fleeing, the wave of a nearby explosion threw him far and he was badly injured, breaking his right leg. He needed an operation and soon after also developed diabetes. This injury made their journey to safety even more difficult.

Abdullah arrived at the IDP informal settlement in Al Shaab district in Aden with no money, no job, no support and a family to protect and provide for.

Abdullah quickly received UNHCR’s cash assistance; support that is given to thousands of the most vulnerable displaced families.

Thanks to generous Zakat funds raised in the first half of 2021, we raised $12 million, which provides a lifeline to 40,680 families, those just like Abdullah and his children.

Abdullah managed to save some of the first two instalments and succeeded in opening a small grocery store in the informal settlement. After opening the shop, Abdullah hopes to be able to repay his debts and make sure his children are able to go back to the school nearby. Brothers Handalah and Kara who have been helping him in the shop, expressed their wishes to be able to play like normal kids again, alongside their siblings and neighbours.

Jamil, Afghani Refugee in Pakistan.

Jamil was born a refugee in Pakistan. His family fled Afghanistan in 1979

Weakness is my strength. I believe nothing is impossible in this world if you are honest and determined to reach your goals. My motto is ‘serve humanity’, and I aim to make sure everyone has access to schools and better education opportunities.” – Jamil

Jamil was born a refugee in Pakistan. His family fled Afghanistan in 1979. Despite challenges, Jamil successfully completed school in Pakistan, receiving many awards and certificates. UNHCR helped Jamil with a wheelchair, and his family previously benefitted from UNHCR’s assistance. Today he gives back generously to his community; he even started a charitable organization where he was elected president, supporting widows, orphans, and daily wagers throughout the pandemic. 

Jamil’s story inspires us through his courage and compassion to help others in his community. He shows us a beautiful example of how refugees can overcome almost anything, with just a little bit of help. We are so humbled by Jamil that our Representative in Peshawar went to meet him in person on World Refugee Day this year.

Thanks to generous Zakat funds, in Pakistan, we were able to support 800 refugee families, some 7,300 people in the first half of the year.

Hoda, Syrian Refugee

Displaced Yemeni father who fled from Maqbnah district in Taiz to Al-Shaab district in Aden

Behind Hoda’s bright smile, hides years of hardship and endurance. Hoda has been one of the most inspiring refugee mothers we have met, showing constant hope, optimism and utmost dedication to her children.

“Many tell me: you’re always smiling, where do you get this optimism from? I say: I don’t know, but I can’t easily feel sad. I was sad for a long time, but I didn’t achieve anything. So, I finally decided that I will laugh. Why should I let my children live another layer of grief? I won’t.”

Hoda was forced to flee her hometown in Syria in 2014, when violence reached her neighbourhood. A year earlier, she had tragically lost her husband and in order to protect her three children, she fled to Lebanon. 

Today, the family lives in Bekaa, Lebanon – where Hoda strives alone to make ends meet. When we met with Hoda during winter, she told us how the winter season has been hard for the family ever since they arrived, because of the cold weather, snow storms, and floods.

Hoda told us that without the cash assistance she receives from UNHCR, her situation would be unbearable.

“Honestly, I’d be helpless. I’m speaking about my situation honestly. And not only me, but I’m also talking about the situation of many people like me. Without UNHCR’s assistance, it would be much worse. The winter assistance comes as a mercy so we can afford fuel for the heater.” She continued. “I would have to borrow money… if I didn’t receive it.”

Thanks to generous Zakat funds in the first half of 2021, UNHCR was able to provide vital support to more than 10,744 refugee families in Lebanon, families like Hoda’s, which helped families to cover heating costs, food and medicine so they stay safe and warm in all seasons.

Every Second Count

Ramadan campaign

In April UNHCR launched its third global Ramadan campaign ‘Every Second Counts’, raising funds to assist more than 58,000 refugees and internally displaced people in 13 countries with lifesaving support for an entire year. The campaign highlighted the impact that individuals can create within seconds in the lives of refugees and displaced families, who have been forced to flee their homes in search of safety and was kicked off with the support of media partners, celebrities, and influencers who mobilized their audiences to take action and make every second count for refugees around the world.

The funds raised will be used to provide refugees and internally displaced people, including women, children, and the elderly across Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Nigeria, part of the Sahel region, and Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, with safe shelter, food, clean water, medicine, and other basic amenities.

Annual Report Launch

In April, UNHCR launched its annual Islamic Philanthropy Impact report, ‘Islamic Philanthropy – Transforming the Lives of the World’s Displaced’, highlighting the impact of Zakat, Sadaqah, and Sadaqah Jariyah donations received through its Refugee Zakat Fund in 2020. The report was launched with a global press conference and panel, with the presence of UNHCR’s esteemed partners, H.E. Prof Dr. Koutoub Moustapha Sano, Secretary General of OIC’s International Islamic Fiqh Academy (IIFA), Dr. Aize Dabsan Al-Qahtani, CEO, Thani Bin Abdullah Bin Thani Al-Thani Humanitarian Fund and Datuk Dr. Mohd Daud Bakar, Executive Chairman, Amanie Group and Tulus Digital.

As per the report findings, UNHCR supported 2.1 million vulnerable refugees and internally displaced people through Zakat and Sadaqah funds raised in 2020, thanks to institutional partners and philanthropists across the world. In comparison to 2019, Zakat donations witnessed in 2020 an increase of 12.5%, triggering a significant growth of 59% in Zakat beneficiaries.

UNHCR is committed to ending poverty as it is the primary focus of most of our activities globally. The communities most at risk for falling below the poverty line are refugees, internally displaced persons, asylum seekers, returnees and stateless individuals.

UNHCR continually strives to provide support to these vulnerable communities to ensure that they can meet their basic needs.

UNHCR has dedicated Zakat funds to provide cash assistance to refugees, IDPs, and returnees in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Chad, and South Sudan. This cash assistance has been essential in ensuring that these vulnerable communities are not disproportionately exposed to the negative socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cash assistance provides refugees and IDPs equal access to essential services that they may not receive due to their legal status.

UNHCR has also implemented projects with a more long-term impact on vulnerable communities through livelihood programs for refugees and IDPs, which aim at giving these groups the skills, knowledge and resources to access sustainable income through employment and self-employment.

UNHCR has used Sadaqah donations to implement Livelihoods programs for refugees in Jordan, Bangladesh, and Morocco to prevent vulnerable groups from slipping into poverty. These livelihoods programs provide refugee men and women with key skills and resources required for becoming employed, including but not limited to workshops, vocational training, as well as financial and in-kind contributions to help refugees start small businesses.

The two programs together help provide immediate relief to those living in poverty while empowering them to sustain themselves in the long run.

UNHCR strives to provide universal health coverage to vulnerable communities regardless of gender, age, income, or legal status through our programs. We have dedicated Zakat and Sadaqah funds to provide cash assistance and specialized programs supporting mental and physical healthcare for vulnerable communities. We have conducted cash-based interventions in Iraq, Yemen, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Bangladesh, and India to ensure that refugees, returnees, and IDPs have the financial means to access essential healthcare and medication. Through our specialized programs, we have supported maternal health programs that directly reduce maternal and neonatal mortality. Moreover, we have strived to provide greater mental health support, especially for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence.

UNHCR has conducted several programs that contribute to providing equal access to primary and secondary education and providing greater access to affordable vocational and higher education. Through the use of Zakat and Sadaqah funds, we have provided cash assistance to refugee, IDP, and returnee families in Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia, and Pakistan, which has allowed them to continue to send their children to school without shouldering further debt or risking eviction due to inadequate financial means. Other projects provided school-going children with school supplies, transportation allowances, access to scholarships for tertiary education, and the provision of vocational training. UNHCR has also conducted specialized programs to help remove barriers to education for young girls and women and eliminate gender disparities in education.

In Lebanon, Jordan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Chad, Pakistan, and South Sudan, UNHCR has dedicated Zakat funds to provide cash assistance to vulnerable refugee and IDP communities to empower women and girls. Cash assistance was provided to especially vulnerable, mostly female-headed households, equal access to economic resources and financial services. Cash-based intervention is vital among vulnerable groups to eliminate early and child marriage, among other harmful coping mechanisms. UNHCR has also been actively ensuring that women are protected from sexual and gender-based violence among refugee and IDP communities through projects in several areas.

UNHCR is committed to ensuring access and sanitation to vulnerable communities. We have dedicated Zakat funds to providing cash assistance to refugees and IDPs to allow them access to hygiene and sanitary products and personal protective gear to protect them from COVID-19. UNHCR has also conducted several projects to provide refugee and IDP communities with access to safe and affordable drinking water, such as solarizing boreholes to reduce the associated energy costs. Moreover, to end open defecation by building sanitary facilities and latrines in refugee communities and schools.

UNHCR has provided refugee and IDP communities with access to affordable and sustainable energy across the world. We have dedicated Sadaqah funds to fit existing boreholes with solar panels to reduce the long-term reliance on diesel and other non-renewable energy sources and their associated costs.

One of the main purviews of UNHCR’s projects worldwide is to provide refugees, IDPs, returnees, asylum seekers, and stateless people with equal access to decent and sustainable work regardless of their gender, race, economic or legal status. UNHCR has contributed Zakat and Sadaqah funds towards providing sustainable and decent work for vulnerable communities by supporting refugees’ small businesses and providing them with the financial and educational resources to ensure that their business can thrive in the long run. We have also conducted livelihoods programs in several countries to ensure that refugees and IDPs can receive adequate support and training for employment, including but not limited to vocational training. Moreover, we have used cash-based interventions among, especially vulnerable groups to eliminate their reliance on harmful coping mechanisms such as child labour to sustain themselves.

UNHCR is responsible for protecting communities around the world that are most susceptible to inequality. Due to their legal status, refugees often do not have the right to formally work in their host countries, resulting in inequalities of outcome and opportunity. The legal status of refugees also prevents them from having equal access to healthcare, education, public funds, and many other public services. UNHCR has committed Zakat funds to provide cash assistance to refugees in Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and many other countries, which give the refugees the ability to counteract these inequalities and still access healthcare, education, and other essential services. We have also taken concrete steps to help refugees become registered with local governments to receive specialized services, which help reduce inequalities among these communities.

In Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Yemen, India, Bangladesh, Egypt, Chad, South Sudan, and Afghanistan, we have dedicated Zakat funds to aid refugees, IDP, and returnee communities. This assistance has allowed UNHCR to help these communities maintain access to safe and affordable housing by ensuring that they can pay their rent and reduce their risk of evictions. In emergencies, UNHCR has also provided shelter and core relief items to refugees, IDPs, and returnees, including tents, tarpaulin, mosquito nets, and waterproofing materials to ensure that the inhabitants are safe from adverse weather conditions.

UNHCR has contributed to ensuring sustainable consumption and production programs through livelihood programs for refugees. These livelihood programs focused on reusing and upcycling waste items to create new products that will be used to provide an income for vulnerable refugees. We have also contributed to the sustainable management of natural resources by reducing the reliance of refugee communities on non-renewable natural resources for energy by providing them access to alternative energy resources.

UNHCR has strived to reduce violence, protect children from exploitation, and providing universal legal identity among refugee and IDP communities. We have dedicated Zakat funds to provide vulnerable refugee families with cash assistance to reduce their reliance on child labour and thus reduce the exploitation of children in the informal labour force. Moreover, we have dedicated several programs to help prevent sexual and gender-based violence among unaccompanied refugee and returnee children by ensuring that they have access to a safe home and social services. UNHCR has also continually advocated for providing legal status for refugees and has directly helped refugees register with local institutions to gain access to specialized services.

UNHCR’s partnership with local institutions is vital in providing access to sustainable livelihoods for refugees. UNHCR has collaborated with local civil society partners on livelihood projects to offer vocational training and support to refugees.
