Eid Gifts with Impact: Support Palestine This Year

6 mins

Stand in solidarity with the people of Gaza this Eid al-Adha with these 12 gift ideas ranging from locally sourced olive oils to a lab grown diamond ring…with proceeds going to those in need.

Eid al-Adha is about family, feasts and gift exchanges but this special time of year in the Muslim calendar is also for reflecting on the blessings in your life, reconnecting with loved ones and giving to those less fortunate. With the tragic situation in Palestine, this Eid feels a little different and keeping the Palestinian people in our hearts and minds is key.

We’ve put together a thoughtful gift guide that pays respect to Palestinian culture and traditions to help you give with meaning. Looking for a gift that gives twice?  Not only will you find unique treasures but some of our ideas include items where a portion of the proceeds will go towards supporting the Palestinian people. You can’t get better than that.

UNRWA Zakat Programme

This Eid, consider giving a gift that will make a huge difference to the lives of Palestinians via the UNRWA Zakat (a mandatory form of charity and one of the Five Pillars of Islam) Programme which offers a lifeline to people struggling with poverty and displacement. 

During a time that’s meant to be about celebration and sharing, many Palestinian families face the harsh reality of food insecurity. UNRWA’s Zakat Programme provides vital food and cash to ensure families can put a proper meal on the table and celebrate Eid with dignity. 100 per cent of Zakat donations are distributed to eligible Palestinian refugees as cash assistance or food baskets in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. This is a gift that goes beyond the material, offering hope and a sense of community during what should be a special time.
