In September 2017, patrons of the Bilal Murqaz Masjid mosque in Liberia, were looking at the charred remains of their local place of worship which was victim to an electrical fault.
Three people suffered severe burns on Monday 4th September 2017 when the Mosque was gutted by fire in the Day-Break-Mouth-Open Community on the Barnersville Road, in the suburbs of Monrovia. The electricity supplier was thought to be at fault.

“This is what Allah destined, and therefore, it must come to pass,” the mosque Imam said.

The Mosque hosted a non-profit learning centre said to have impacted the lives of the Muslim Community, specifically in education. The mosque was also a boarding school for children.
The Imam praised Allah as some of the students were still on holiday and were expected to return for classes on the day the fire occurred, adding, “We have 78 to 90 students attending the school.”

He called on the Muslim community, particularly members of the council, to rebuild the mosque so that the students can continue their academic calendar.
The school was founded in 2012, and has since that time been known to have benefited hundreds of school-going children in the community and outlining regions.
Because Caravan of Mercy have been distributing food to nearby areas in Monrovia since 2015, concerned mosque members approached the charity for financial assistance in rebuilding the mosque. We are now requesting your financial help.

Syria is still Bleeding

SYRIABLEEDING

Over the last few weeks the bombardment in Syria – especially Aleppo, has been furious and it has left hundreds dead or seriously injured. The people of Syria have been starving, suffering due to the lack of clean water and they’ve urgently needed medical assistance. You can help us save lives and provide much needed aid to the people of Syria.

In the last month your donations have helped us provide food packs, baby milk powder and clothing to displaced families inside Syria. In the coming days we will also be distributing 40 tons of Rice and giving out mattresses too..

The need in Syria is greater than ever, just in the last 10 days, 5,480 people have been displaced inside Syria (UN High Commissioner for Refugees)

With less than a month left till Ramadhan it is imperative that we play our part from now and help the people of Syria.

What can you do?

Donate a food pack for £30.00
Donate a water pump for £1,350.00
Fundraise for Caravan of Mercy and help the people of Syria
Volunteer for Caravan of Mercy and play an active role in helping millions of people around the world.

Fundraising for Caravan of Mercy

Every day, people ask us what they can do to help Syria. At Caravan of Mercy, we think fundraising is the best way: not only does it raise essential money, but it also increases awareness of the humanitarian crisis in Syria, encourages others to fundraise as well, and brings hope to people in Syria by showing them that they are not forgotten.

Setup a Just giving page today and get your friends and family donating as well. https://www.justgiving.com/caravanofmercy

If you have any ideas or questions about fundraising or volunteering we would love to hear from you. Contact us at info@caravanofmercy.org and we will get in touch with you.

The suffering of the people of Syria worsens every day, play your part and help us make a difference!

Refugee Emergency Aid in Greece 2015

Refugee Emergency Aid

Vast numbers of refugees are making their way across the Mediterranean into Europe in hope of finding refuge.

The arrival of refugees in Europe has sparked a crisis as many countries struggle and are reluctant to cater for the large numbers arriving.

On the 11th of September we launched an emergency appeal to deliver aid to refugees arriving in Europe.

Caravan of Mercy has long been working in Syria and Turkey assisting families that have been effected by the ongoing crisis, and now Caravan of Mercy wanted to help Syrians and other refugees in Europe too.

In September and October Caravan of Mercy visited Croatia and Austria and thousands of refugees received aid such as food packs, fruit and other essential items.

With the ongoing refugee crisis Caravan of Mercy decided to visit the island of Lesbos in Greece, which is the first point of entry for many of the refugees. On the 4th of December a member from Caravan of Mercy departed for the island of Greece with the sole purpose of helping the refugees.

The Aegean Sea Island, which lies less than six miles from the Turkish coast, has seen the unrelenting influx of refugees unchanged despite worsening weather conditions, with strong winds and rough seas.

Moments after arriving on the island of Lesbos we witnessed a few boats arriving filled with people from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The boats the refugees arrived on should only accommodate 16 people but each boat had approximately 50 people on them. Fear could be seen on the faces of every single person especially amongst the children. As soon as the refugees arrived we saw many women fall into sujood to thank Allah and many others embraced each other and with tears in their eyes it could be heard them making dua.

Some of the refugees needed urgent medical attention and alhamdolillah there were other organisations ready to assist anyone that needed medical attention. While in Lesbos we witnessed a very old lady come off the boat and suffer from a heart attack, alhamdolillah we were able to translate from Arabic to English for the medical team and the lady received aid and was eventually rushed to the hospital.

The weather in Greece is getting very cold and many of the refugees arrive with no shoes and with their clothes drenched in sea water. One man we assisted could not walk as he had been sitting in the cold for hours and he had lost all movement in his feet.

One mother from Syria told us:

“I know we are safe, and I know we are lucky, and that means everything. But its beginning to hit me that getting to Europe isn’t the end of our problems. Getting to Europe was just the beginning.”

IMG-20151206-WA0072

We visited the Karathapai refugee camp and the Morin camp and the conditions of the refugees was very difficult to see, especially in the Morin camp. The camps can get filled very quickly and when people from so many different backgrounds are restricted to a confined area the gloom of uncertainty is clearly visible on so many faces.

Over the course of the next few weeks Caravan of Mercy will be providing 10,239 refugees with hot meals in both the Karathapai and Morin refugee camp. In addition to the hot meals 562 emergency packs will also be distributed to refugees immediately after they have arrived on to the island.

The emergency packs will consist of the following items:

  • 1 blanket
  • Bottle of water
  • Chocolate
  • Biscuits
  • Fruit
  • Croissant

IMG-20151205-WA0011

While on the island of Lesbos we met an eighty year old grandmother who had arrived with her two grandchildren. She told us that the only reason she’s left her home in Halab is due to the war taking place. She said that she has lost everything to this war: her son, her daughters and some grandchildren, and she said I have chosen to come Europe to get my living grandchildren here so they don’t face the difficulty of living in a war torn country. She went on to say that now that I have got them here I can die in peace and you Muslims have the responsibility to look after your brothers in Islam the way the ansaar looked after the muhajirs.

Nearly every single refugee has a story to tell, a story of immense courage, bravery and at the same time sadness. It really makes you think that what difficulty must these refugees have gone through to abandon their homes and come to a new country where they will face so much uncertainty.

Although we refer to them as “refugees” we do so with a heavy heart. Instinctively, we know that they are individuals, people with unique stories, and we yearn to see them as individuals. There is no way that we can begin to hear their stories but we can remember that they carry those stories and that the stories make them who they are.

IMG-20151205-WA0106

Allah have mercy upon our brothers, sisters and young ones, protect them from adversities and calamities and shower with his blessings. Ameen.

The truth of the matter is that these people need our help, and the amazing thing is by us helping them we are actually making our Akhirat.
