Winter Appeal


During the time of the holy prophet (PBUH), when winter would approach Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (RA) would advise the Sahabah, saying:

“Winter has come, and it is an enemy, so fully prepare for it with wool, leather boots, and socks. Use wool as your under-clothing and outer-clothing, because the cold is an enemy that enters quickly but leaves slowly”’. (Lata’if al-Ma’arif)

We see from the example of Umar (RA) that preparation for winter is essential and we should endeavour to be as equipped as possible to deal with the trials it brings forth.

As we prepare for another chilly winter here, there will be hundreds of thousands of our brothers and sisters around the world living in poverty that will be dreading the troublesome season, as it poses a grave threat to their lives.

As we buy our thermal clothing, heaters and food, they will have no means of preparation for what lies ahead. They will not have the income to stock up on food items or buy blankets and coats for their children. They will be forced to sleep without mattresses during freezing nights in barely inhabitable tents that cannot stop the rain getting in.

With 736 million people living in poverty worldwide, it is critical that we do all we can to ensure their survival this winter.

GRF have been implementing winter projects in eight countries across the world since 2013. Year after year we have been aiding helpless families living in dreadful conditions, helping them prepare for tough winter seasons, and protecting their lives from potentially fatal sub-zero degree temperatures.

This year we need your support to carry on our life-saving work. You can warm their hearts this winter by providing the simplest items that will literally keep them alive.
