The Prophet said, “Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully.” (Al-Bukhari)
“Give gifts to one another, you will love each other.” (al-Adab al-Mufrad)
Our Eid Gift Packs contain clothes, toys, school supplies and sweets; all things are added to the pack with the intention of making the recipient children happy.
Spread Smiles This Eid
Many children, especially those living in the slums of Pakistan, do not have the luxuries that we have in the West. These luxuries include new toys, games, clothes and shoes, all of which we provide in our Eid Gift packs. With one in eight people going to bed hungry around the world, your gift could mean everything to a child on the morning of Eid.
Impact Of Your Donations
Your donation towards our Eid gift campaign will have profound effects upon a child: they will be able to enjoy the occasion of Eid to the fullest; they can integrate into the community much better especially during this time of festivity; and together we can give a child some of the smiles and hopes they lost during conflict in their homelands.
Mr Jalal And His Grand Daughter Fatima
“Due to my son’s low income, even with her free education, we are not able to afford much for my granddaughter Fatima. She's such a sweet little girl and doesn't ask for anything knowing that we can't afford it, which is why it makes me upset when I see her watching the other kids in our small neighbourhood flaunting their new toys and clothes on the special occasion of Eid without saying a word.
That’s why the yearly Eid gifts that we receive from UCI are the only things that enable us to enjoy our Eid day. It is a religious occasion and with all the other children in the area enjoying and wearing new clothes, and I was sad that my granddaughter were not able to partake in all the festivity. I keep praying for Mufti Abdul Wahab, for giving us this great help. The smiling face of my granddaughter every Eid is far more beneficial than anything else we could have been given. Her happiness is enough to sustain our whole family, and for this we thank UCI for facilitating us through the most difficult time of our lives and we wish him the best.”
