Humanitarian Crisis in Palestine
The escalation of conflict in the Spring of 2021 has amplified the existing humanitarian crisis in Palestine. Access to basic services is compromised and there is increasing need for medical supplies, food, clean water, psychosocial and economic empowerment. (Humanitarian Coalition)
Even though tensions are extremely high and the pandemic is ongoing, Islamic Relief is ready to help Palestine now. Islamic Relief will provide lifesaving care in areas where the health system is struggling to cope.

Global Affairs Canada: Canada sending medical supplies to support COVID-19 response in India
“Canada continues to stand in solidarity with the people of India. We must all unite in this hour of need and work together in the global fight against this virus that is devastating lives across the globe.”
– Marc Garneau, Minister of Foreign Affairs
The surge is overwhelming health services across the country as daily infections continue to rise.
People are left fighting for their lives.
Hospitals and health centres are running out of beds, essential drugs and oxygen.
The crisis has affected lives and people’s livelihoods, with the poorest and most marginalised communities also facing food insecurity.

Rohingya Camp Fires
Islamic Relief Canada
Islamic Relief is on the ground now assessing immediate needs and providing urgent humanitarian aid. Our teams have deployed additional support from the local field office in Dhaka to Cox’s Bazar.
Families are in desperate need of food support, Covid-19 hygiene supplies, sanitation facilities, and shelter.
Help provide urgent relief and save a life today.
Humanity Auxilium is working tirelessly with their local partner AWARD, who is in the camps, to provide
immediate temporary shelter in the childcare centers, as many Rohingya women and children are
homeless now. We are working to disperse emergency funds right away to set up temporary medical
clinics where the local physicians, nurses, and volunteers will work to treat burn patients and mitigate the
spread of infection in the camps. These funds will also facilitate the transport of critical patients to Sodor
hospital in Cox’s Bazar. Humanity Auxilium will also support additional doctors from Chittagong to help
with the crisis in the camps.
Islamic Relief Canada is responding to the Yemen Crisis: 24 million people are in need of humanitarian aid
With COVID-19 spreading rapidly in the country, Yemen is trying to fight this devastating pandemic but unfortunately the country has limited resources that allow for detection, isolation and treatment of the disease.
More than five years of conflict has deepened Yemen’s poverty, devastated its infrastructure, and caused widespread hunger and suffering and this disease is a second front that Yemen is unprepared for. The Yemen crisis is getting worse, day by day.
There are not enough hospital beds or supplies to treat those seriously ill.
