Winter in the Camps

5 years on and the humanitarian crisis in Syria continues to escalate. Millions of ordinary Syrians have lost their loved ones and have fled from the rubble of what was once their homes.

Muslim Hands distributes winter relief to vulnerable communities all over the world. In February, Muslim Hands’ Digital Communications Editor, Tijen Horoz joined our field teams distributing blankets, mattresses, clothes and winter fuel to Syrian refugees in Southern Lebanon.

She said, ‘In Al Quaraoun camp sandwiched in between two snow-covered peaks in the Bekaa Valley, children are everywhere. Children of all ages, girls and boys, some blonde, some dark-haired, run around in the cold, wet mud. At first glance, it’s a normal enough scene. Except that these children are surrounded on all sides by white tents and all they are wearing to protect their little feet are plastic sandals.’

With your support, Muslim Hands will continue to provide food, warm clothing, blankets and heating throughout the winter months in refugee camps in Lebanon.

Q. 1. Who can take part in Shine for Syria night walk?

A. The Shine for Syria night walk is an event which is open to anyone who is up for the challenge. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
You can also bring your friends and family along with you as Shine for Syria is an event about bringing family, friends and communities together to help make a real difference for Syrian refugees.

Q. 2. How much do I need to raise?

A. Each participant must raise a minimum of R1000. However, we are hoping that our enthusiastic participants aim for a more pioneering individual fundraising target.

Q. 3. What happens on the day?

A. The registration desk opens at 19.00 and the walk starts at 19.30. Depending on your pace, we anticipate the walk will be completed by all participants by 21:00.
Once completing the walk, medals and food will be provided as well as entertainment. The night-walk will be finished by 21:00.

Q. 4. What should I wear?

A. Please dress in light cool clothing! Temperatures are likely to be high so remember to dress appropriately. Please ensure your footwear is comfortable.

Q. 5. What do I need to bring with me?

A. Comfortable walking shoes is a good place to start, and maybe an umbrella or waterproof jacket in case of rain. It is advisable to bring a fully charged mobile phone in case we need to contact you.
In addition, you do not need to bring a prayer mat as a prayer area will be allocated on the day along with WC facilities to perform Wudhu.

Q. 6. Can I come in fancy dress or a costume?

A. Yes! It’s a night walk, so add abit of sparkle and light to your outfit or wear your favourite super hero costume. Make sure it is appropriate to the event.
