In Muslim cultures around the world, there are two main celebrations which are of most importance, one being Eid Al Fitr, the celebration of the end of the fasting month, and Eid Al Adha, also known as the festival of Sacrifice. It is during this time Muslims prepare a sacrifice in the form of meat hamper or distribution also known as Qurban. To give Qurban is to not only remind us of the humility of the human spirit but to also help feed those who are less fortunate.
Many of the local populations in Iyilik Denizi's programs make their living from the informal economy, with high numbers of young people unable to access employment, education, and training. This leads to increased levels of poverty and inequality and leaves communities vulnerable and exposed to shocks.
Blood in our veins is crucial for the sustainability of life; likewise, water is equally important for all creature's life. Clean, safe drinking water is scarce. Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don’t have access to it. Yet, we take it for granted. Water is the foundation of life. And still today, all around the world, far too many people spend their entire day searching for it.
Even in today's world, health inequalities and stark regional variations exist. These require continued attention, commitment, and intervention if the third Sustainable Development Goal (Improved Health and Well-Being) is to be addressed.
Education in emergencies; A Neglected Priority
When a conflict or natural disaster erupts, education is generally the first service interrupted and the last resumed. Governments are often overwhelmed by the needs and relief aid traditionally focuses on populations’ basic requirements – food, water, shelter, and protection – with only 2 percent of humanitarian funding allocated to education.
Conflict, instability, poor governance and climate change have created an unprecedented level of humanitarian need.
Often spanning multiple geographies, crises are becoming increasingly complex with affected communities needing additional support for longer periods of time.
Climate change is an urgent threat to humanity that demands swift, decisive action. Fires. Droughts. Floods. Hurricanes. Rising seas. Climate impacts are being felt all around the world and on track to get much worse. Every year of delay and every tenth of a degree matter. The next few years is the last window we must steer the world in a better and safer direction.
