Why We Need to Help in Macedonia

Macedonia is home to 2.1 million people, and as such often receives little attention from the development sector. The country holds an overall sturdy and steadily-growing economy but still faces various humanitarian challenges.

A closer look at humanitarian areas of concern in Macedonia:

  • 30% of children at risk of poverty (UNICEF report, 2017)
  • 16% of secondary school children not in school (UNICEF report, 2017)

With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Macedonia are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Macedonia

In winter 2017, Islamic Relief USA provided firewood and blankets to orphans and vulnerable families. This project benefited 250 people.

Here’s just a sampling of efforts for families in need across Macedonia:

  • Providing urgent aid to families vulnerable to harsh weather conditions
  • Delivering emergency relief to refugees who fled to Macedonia for safety
  • Distributing essential food aid packages to families living in hunger

We Need YOUR Help

As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. If we work together—with YOU—we can make the vision of a better Macedonia a reality for so many more of our sisters and brothers in need.

$250 can distribute life-saving medical aid to those suffering from disease
