Rehabilitation – Helping the Injured of Barrel Bombs

Rehabilitation – Helping the Injured of Barrel Bombs

The Problem

The Syrian regime has been notorious in disregarding UN resolutions prohibiting the use of barrel bombs due to their indiscriminate harm to the civilian population. Many men, women and children have been killed, injured or disabled due to these bombs.

The bombs are hurled from helicopters above the civilian population and land on homes, busy market places, farmlands and roads. Even hospitals and schools have been targeted. These barrel bombs are designed for maximum indiscriminate harm. Filled with nails, sharp objects and metal, on impact these objects are flung in every direction causing death and destruction to whatever and whoever lays in its path. Rockets fired from fighter jets are no less harmful to the civilians. The jets often target innocent children and women in their homes, schools and hospitals.

After Effects

The after effects of these bombing raids are life changing for the victims. Many of them have been moved out of Syria to neighbouring Turkey, Lebanon and Jordon. Crisis Aid has embarked upon these forgotten injured and disabled victims. In many cases, people’s livelihoods have also been affected. Disability, loss of limbs and other injuries makes them unable to provide for their families.

One Solution

We cannot stop the bombing and we cannot stop the civilians being collateral damage but we can support and help in the rehabilitation of the survivors..

Crisis Aid is supporting four rehabilitation centres in a border town called Reyhanli. This town borders Syria and Turkey and is where many of the injured are taken. After their surgery if their life can be saved they need to undergo specialist rehabilitation to help them live a semi normal life. The rehabilitation centres have serious cash flow problems due to the lack of help from the UN and other funding sources. They are in serious need of financial help.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Crisis Aid 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 Crisis Aid 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 Crisis Aid 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.
