Spread the Warmth

The winter in Iraq can be pretty severe; with temperatures dropping as low as 2°C, the southern desert region can be pretty frosty.

Every winter, thousands of vulnerable children and elders are at risk of the flu, pneumonia, and sadly, many times, lives are lost because the basic necessities to keep them warm were not accessible.

They have no means to buy warm clothes, nor heat their homes!

This winter, Imam Hussein Development and Relief Foundation (IHDRF) is embarking upon a project to provide the vulnerable and displaced people with warm clothing and heaters to help them survive through the harsh winter.

New clothes are purchased and displayed in “shop” style structures allowing the recipients to go to a “shop” and select the clothing they need. We believe in protecting the dignity of the vulnerable and they should not be humiliated while seeking help.

Additionally, IHDRF will be distributing heaters to help keep the houses warm. Based on the current needs, we will be providing a choice of two types of heaters: oil based and electric.

We hope that you will help us “spread the warmth” through your generous donations as well as by spreading the word to family and friends.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

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