Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Muslim Global Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Muslim Global Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Muslim Global Relief to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Muslim Global Relief will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Muslim Global Relief receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

MGR-india-water-550x325

Last year MGR located four Indian villages where the need for water was greatest. Rasulpur, Kalapanchan, Niali and Siripar are in the South Eastern regions of Khorda, Puri and Cuttak. Each village is home to 35-50 households, and the major occupation in these communities is informal labour for a daily wage.

Before we brought safe water, poverty was rife and disease was widespread owing to waterborne illnesses and a lack of hygiene and sanitation. Women and children suffered most, because they were often responsible for finding and fetching water.

Through the Big Muslim Fund, we installed 17 hand-pumps across the four villages. The hand-pumps serve 180 households, benefiting an estimated 2,000 people. MGR also conducted awareness raising sessions for hygiene and sanitation with the local communities.

The result has been phenomenal, turning the dire situation in each village around in such a short space of time.

Since the hand-pumps were installed, conflicts resulting from water shortages have reduced by 90%. There is a positive sense of community ownership of the hand-pumps, and general harmony. Now that water sources are close and easily accessible, women no longer have to spend so much time fetching water that is only enough for their most basic needs. The time they save is spent more productively. With more water at their disposal, people are able to wash clothes, clean their homes and bathe regularly.

The hand-pumps have also reduced waterborne diseases, while hygiene in the villages is gradually improving. With less people falling ill, more children have begun to attend school, and adults are able to work.

There really is nothing quite like water, and with simple, safe water solutions we can turn lives around. Donate now to give water.
