From everyone here at Afghanaid, we wish all those celebrating a very happy and peaceful Ramadan!

Please make a donation this Ramadan and help vulnerable women and girls in Afghanistan

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is considered to be the holiest month of the year in Islam, where Muslims worldwide fast during daylight hours to commemorate the first time the Qur’an, their holy book, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

Charitable giving during Ramadan

Ramadan is believed to be the best time of the year to practice positive acts such as giving to charity. The rewards for generous deeds during Ramadan are believed to be multiplied many times over. It is the most popular month for paying Zakat (donating 2.5% of your wealth to charity) - each year, British Muslims give millions of pounds to charities.

Together, we can make a real difference

Everything Afghanaid does is geared towards achieving our vision of a peaceful and thriving Afghanistan. Sadly, many Afghan women and girls still desperately need our help. We know that we can only achieve our goals with your support. This Ramadan, we are asking you to help give a lifeline to vulnerable women and girls in Afghanistan, so that they can claim their human rights and build a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.

No matter how small or large, your donation will truly make a lasting difference, as the women we help now will blaze a trail for future generations. Afghanaid will make sure that your gift will provide the best possible support to those who need it most.

Who your support can help

Your donation could change the course of a woman's life. Afghanaid is wworking to increase the understanding and acceptance of women’s rights, and to change attitudes towards issues such as violence against women and early or forced marriage. A donation today will enable us to work with more communities, helping us to reach many more women and girls, so that they can claim their rights and build a brighter future for themselves and their families.
