We are ecstatic to be able to finally announce our Charity Project for this year working with our Charity partners Jigsaw.
Jigsaw is an independent non-profit organisation founded by a team of professionals and activists seeking to make a positive impact and contribution to the lives of those less fortunate.
The trustees, management team and network of core volunteers at Jigsaw bring a wealth of experience having worked voluntarily in the sector for almost a decade and raised millions of pounds for a variety of great causes.
Jigsaw is completely volunteer-managed and run, which means they have no paid staff whatsoever!
USKA Charity Project 2023...
We all saw the devastation caused by the earthquake which struck Syria on February 6th 2023 causing thousands of deaths and homes to be lost.
Generations were wiped out, children orphaned, thousands of people lying dead under the rubble, unable to be buried because the resources are not available to search for and recover the bodies.
11 YEARS of danger, hunger, unrest and uncertainty have plagued the lives of ordinary Syrian families trying to live their lives. Now those affected have to contend with being homeless with no possessions and rebuilding their lives all over again.
After successfully completing the first Jigsaw Village project inside Idlib, we aim to build Jigsaw Village 2.0. The second housing project by Jigsaw Charity to house Syrians inside Syria.
The village will consist of 500 brick built homes which will be given to those made homeless by the earthquake.
The land has been secured and we aim to begin groundwork ASAP Inshallah.
Each house will have 2 living/bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a courtyard.
The cost of providing a family with a roof over their head, some stability, comfort, warmth and safety is just £1900.
This is a Zakat eligible project, and an excellent Sadaqah Jariyah opportunity for you or someone else!!
Team Jigsaw will be overseeing this project personally, visiting the site in Ramadan as well after Ramadan to monitor progress and update yourselves.
They are one of the few UK aid agencies who are regularly on the ground inside Syria hand delivering the aid to those who most need it.
Project mission: To raise £11,400 to build 6 secure homes (£1900 each) for displaced Syrians located in the safe zone near the Turkish border in Idlib forming part of the Jigsaw 'Earthquake' Village 2.0.
Each house will be 38m² consisting of two rooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom with water.
This USKA Fight Factory Charity Project will be carried out in the memory of our beloved students Khuzaimah Douglas and Azmat Yaqub who we miss dearly.
Please give generally to help us reach our total!
