Assalamu Alaykum,

On behalf of the Syrian American Foundation (SAF) and UOSSM USA, we all pray you have blessed Ramadan, you and your family are protected from harm and evil, your life continue uninterrupted by major calamities, and Allah’s Mercy and blessing to shower you.

Nine years ago, the small Syrian community in the tristate area, started the Syrian American Foundation and reached out to the larger Muslim community seeking their help to support fellow Syrian suffering form the brutality committed against them. The community came through in an amazing fashion and donated generously.

Since then, SAF & UOSSM USA leaned on the community in annual fundraisers to support its relief work and every year the community continued its kind and amazing support.  This support helped SAF & UOSSM USA, deliver food, medical supply, medical relief, and sanitary facilities in the refugee camps.  In addition, SAF able to support the local Syrian refugees in the tristate area and, for the past 4 years, fund a part position for a refugee coordinator within ICGC’s Rahma social services.

This year, SAF & UOSSM USA annual joint fundraiser was scheduled for the last weekend before Ramadan, the weekend of April 18.  However, due to the stay at home order and the situation associated with the Corona virus, the fund; raiser had to be cancelled before even advertising it.  Therefore, this year, SAF 9th annual fundraiser will be a virtual fundraiser through emails and text messages.

While we understand that there are charitable needs exacerbated by the current situation, we also appreciate that Allah’s barakah can encompasses all.  We encourage all to divide their charitable donation between worthy causes to meet the challenge imposed upon us and to help our Muslim institutions and organizations to continue the great work they are going.

The need of the Syrian Refugees in Northern Syrian is beyond explanation in a short letter like this one.  The need has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 situation.  Imagine trying to fulfill the hygiene recommendations of washing hands for 20 seconds while there in no running water or maintaining social distancing in cramped tent that has 5-10 family members.

As a continued supporter, we are hoping that you can match your last your donations, or 50% of it.  Help us deliver badly needed medical services, food, and sanitary services to those that have been forgotten by the rest of the world.

As you contemplate your donation please remember this:

  • Allah Subhanahu Wataalla says in surah Al-Baqarah (2:268):


The Shitan frightens you with prospect of poverty and commands you shameful stinginess, while Allah promises you forgiveness and abundance of blessing from him and Allah is All-Encompassing and All-Knowing.

  • Allah Subhanahu Wataalla also says in surah Al-Baqarah about the reward of those who spend in his sake (2:268):  Aya2

Those who spend their wealth by night and by day, secretly and publicly they will have their reward with their lord, no fear will be upon them, and they will not grieve.  

We thank you for your support and we pay that Allah protect you and your family and please remember us in Duaa.
