Gaza strip has experienced decades of protest, military operations, and violence, leaving most of its population suffering from hunger, poverty, and conflicts. In last year’s conflict between Gaza and Israel, there were more than 200 innocent civilians who lost their lives, and more than 1900 wounded, losing one or both limbs and getting injured in different parts of the body.
In this Ramadan period, we started offering wheelchairs to the victims of the war in Gaza and we are continuing to do so this whole period. The wheelchairs will provide mobility, make them feel more comfortable, fulfilled, and bring more enjoyment to their daily life.
It is designated by Allah (SWT) himself as it is said: “Ramadan is the month of giving and mercy, and in it, Allah blesses the believers with forgiveness and being saved from Hellfire. Therefore, whoever is merciful and giving in Ramadan, Allah will be even more merciful and giving, and will bestow upon him countless bounties and blessings”
Like what we do in other areas in dire need of assistance, we have dedicated our efforts in Gaza during this period to help those who need it the most. The electric wheelchairs will offer a chance to get around easier and more comfortably without using much effort while electric scooters offer a wider number of choices to offer more comfortability.
Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others? As charity should be carried out throughout the year, in the holy month of Ramadan, the noble act of charity should be increased. We need your help to continue making a transformative change in the lives of people who need it the most. A manual wheelchair costs $400, an electric wheelchair costs $2,600 while an electric scooter costs $4,800. Even as little as $1 can make a difference in someone’s life.
