Germany has served as a model country with regards to accepting refugees, currently leading the way by serving as a home to the most refugees in Europe.
A closer look at refugees in Germany:
- Home to 1.4 million refugees (UNHCR, 2018)
- During 2015 and 2016, Germany admitted more than one million persons seeking protection. (UNHCR, 2018)
In 2015, Islamic Relief USA began assisting newly arrived refugees in Germany by providing families with hygiene sets and children with gift sets for Eid. The Eid gift sets have proven especially meaningful to the children and serve as a reminder that, even in the most challenging of times, giving the gift of joy can spread immeasurable relief.
