Emina lives with her mother and brother in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where they have struggled to make ends meet since the death of Emina’s father.

Their only income is a small pension given to Emina’s mother, whose poor health has left her bed bound and in need of care.

Damp has spread throughout their rented home and the family’s situation becomes even more difficult in the cold winter months.

Thanks to our generous donors, we can ensure Emina’s family is able to heat their home.

“Islamic Relief helps us a lot during the year, especially during Ramadan, Eid al-Adha and winter,” Emina says.

“It is difficult to describe how much this help means to us – I don’t have enough words for that. I can only ask Allah to reward you.”

Emina and her mother wrap up for winter

“Last year we didn’t have any heating at all because we did not have the money. At the beginning of winter, our neighbours collected money and bought 3 meters of firewood for us.”

“Islamic Relief’s donation of heating materials helped us to spend the rest of the winter in a warm home.”

Without your donations, Emina’s family would have faced living in freezing conditions. Your generosity helped her and her family make it through the colder months.

Donate today and help someone like Emina survive this winter.
