Lebanon crisis

Lebanon is experiencing its worst ever economic crisis. The value of the local currency has collapsed, and inflation has reached an all-time-high. Hospitals are reporting severe shortages of essential medicines, equipment, and 1,000 healthcare workers have left the country, leaving a huge gap in providing lifesaving care at this pivotal moment.

This crisis is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable people, particularly the 250,000 Palestinian refugees living in camps across Lebanon.

Poverty rates have doubled whilst food prices have quadrupled since 2019. Many Palestinian refugees are simply unable to afford basic food supplies and are skipping meals as a result. Basic food items and drugs are disappearing from shops and pharmacies as suppliers find it increasingly difficult to re-stock. 

MAP is gravely concerned about the likely impact of worsening acute and chronic malnutrition rates in young children and pregnant/breastfeeding women, as we know that rates of serious illness and death will rise as a result.

A donation from you could help us provide:

MAP urgently need your support to help respond to these emergency needs, as we closely monitor the situation over the coming months. The rapidly rising poverty and food insecurity levels will inevitably lead to a malnutrition crisis, particularly for young children and pregnant/breastfeeding women. 

Thank you for supporting our Lebanon Appeal.

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is the obligation for Muslims to give a proportion of their wealth to charity each year. 

How does Medical Aid for Palestinians use Zakat Donations?

Across the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), Palestinian hospitals are in desperate need of basic, yet essential medicines and medical supplies. Many medical items needed to treat patients are regularly in short supply or have already ran out completely. At Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), we help by purchasing as many urgently needed medicines, medical supplies and equipment as we can. We can only do this thanks to the financial support we receive from supporters like you. You can choose to make your donation to us a 'Zakat donation' by selecting the checkbox in our donation forms. 

MAP uses 100% of all the Zakat donations we receive to respond to the ongoing medicines and medical supply emergency in Gaza and in the West Bank. If you want to make a Zakat donation, please remember to tick the Zakat box on the donation page.

You can make your Zakat Gift have even greater impact by adding Gift Aid to your donation.
