Coronavirus Appeal

Help us prevent the spread of Coronavirus by donating towards our Coronavirus Appeal.

R100 can provide a basic hygiene kit.

R400 can provide a family of 4 with a food pack for a month.

R1500 can provide a vulnerable family with financial aid.

As the world focuses on preventing the spread of COVID-19, Islamic Relief is providing health and hygiene support to vulnerable people in South Africa and around the world – and appealing to our donors to assist with this vital work.

According to the latest figures, over 981, 258 (as at 2 April ) people have tested positive for the disease in 172 countries. This number is likely to increase over the coming weeks and months as the global pandemic reaches people in every part of the world.

Our health and hygiene work saves lives

Islamic Relief works in 35 countries. Our staff on the ground in many of these countries are gearing up to provide lifesaving medical care and boost preventative action to minimise the risk of the disease. As COVID-19 impacts more communities around the world, our teams will be providing hygiene kits and access to sanitation.

Islamic Relief runs hygiene awareness sessions for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

Good hygiene saves lives

Islamic Relief is encouraging all local communities to take extra care during this period and follow their governments’ official medical advice.

This includes:

  • Washing hands regularly and thoroughly with soap
  • Avoiding touching one’s face
  • Covering one’s mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
  • Putting used tissues in the bin and washing hands immediately
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are unwell.


And whoever saves one life it would be as if he saved all of mankind
(Qur’an 5:32).

Donate to our Coronavirus Appeal

There are millions of vulnerable people around the world who face economic barriers to healthcare or live in areas with inadequate medical facilities. The risk of serious illness or death from disease is even higher for them.

Islamic Relief is continuing to provide support to vulnerable people all over the world and in the coming days, weeks and months will be doing all we can to limit the impact of coronavirus through our health and hygiene programmes.

For R100 you can provide an essential hygiene kit to someone in need.

You can help make a difference. Your donation could help save a life. Donate now
