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.

Located in Upper Eastern Ghana, Kouse-Jingiri is home to 1,907 people. A lack of safe water and next to no sanitation meant open defecation was common here, and diseases caused by contaminated water and poor hygiene were rampant. The villagers were were forced to seek out expensive medical aid, when they scarcely had enough food. Their women and children walked long distances each day to fetch clean water. Often they endangered their lives to do so. But now things are different.

With the support of passionate UK donors, and hands on participation from the local community, MGR installed a borehole water system in the centre of the village. The well has a water storage tank and functions with a motorised hand-pump that runs on solar energy.

MGR also installed a covered sewage and waste management system to accommodate public sanitation facilities. We built separate latrines, showers and ablution taps for men and women of the village.

Once construction was completed, MGR staff on the ground conducted awareness raising sessions with the local community about hygiene. We’ve already seen a marked improvement in sanitation and a reduction of water borne diseases.

Among the villagers of Kouse-Jingiri there is a positive sense of community ownership of the public hand-pump and sanitation facilities. In a short space of time, it’s made such a difference in their lives.

A clean water source that’s easily accessible, has brought improved health and well-being to the whole village. It’s meant their women and children are safe, and now have more time to spend being productive or attending school. A surplus of water has also meant that people are able to wash clothes and clean their homes more regularly.

Kosei-Jingiri’s public toilets have put an end to open defecation, and offered women the benefit of feeling safe, when they need to relieve themselves. While the shower and ablution facilities have made it easier for people to wash and bathe.

At MGR, Water and Sanitation projects come first on our list of ways to create sustainable development in rural communities. We know that with simple solutions we can turn lives around. Donate now to give water.
