In effort to provide permanent shelter for the displaced Syrians, a Canadian Muslim charity is raising funds to build a village in the war-torn country.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Hope Village Project aims to build 500 homes, a hospital, mosque and school at an estimate cost of CAN$2,250,00 (US$1.7 million) through money raised by Human Concern International (HCI).

The project will be constructed in Al-Bab or Afrin region to provide permanent shelter for the displaced Syrians, Anadolu Agency reported.
