Global Sadaqah: Online donations to help Africans see the lights again

By Syaima Qonitah

It is our collective responsibility to look after our Muslim brothers and sisters. As narrated by An-Nu’man Ibn Basher, Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said,

“The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever.”

This implies that as Muslims, we should function as if we are one body. If one of us is in need, others from the Muslim ummah should take the responsibility to help out.

Why Donate during Ramadan?

Ramadan is the most-awaited month of blessings and Barakah, where Allah (S.W.T) opens His gate of mercy and multiplies the reward manifold for the righteous work.

With that, Muslims aim to do as much good deeds as possible as narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good.”

Indeed, the best of charity is given during the month of Ramadan. Sadaqah helps to strengthen the spirit of the Muslim ummah. We have an ever-present need among Muslim communities, we should aim to do as many good deeds as possible, especially during these last ten days of Ramadan.

Challenges in Online Donation today

In the age of digitalisation, there is a growing trend in seeking and receiving funds online through crowdfunding. This shift is the future for donations and fundraisings.

Despite the growing number of online donation-based platforms, there are present challenges that still make it hard for Muslims to use them. For instance, the lack of transparency – how the money is being utilised or whether it reaches the people who were entitled to. Transparency is vital. Unfortunately, there is a lack of credible and reliable institutions that have efficient and effective online donation platforms or enough media coverage access.

Impact Tracking

However, the issue of transparency can be addressed with impact tracking. Donors would donate more if they have access to see the impact they have made over time. Impact tracking means that you can see how your donation has helped and changed the lives of the people that you have donated. This allows you to see and realise the impact you have made through your donation.

Solutions

Global Sadaqah offers the solutions to all of these problems. GlobalSadaqah.com (powered by Ethis Ventures, an Islamic Crowdfunding platform expert) matches high-impact Charity Campaigns to savvy donors. With Global Sadaqah, you can donate online and keep track of your donations. The platform offers a high-tech solution with high level transparency.

The campaigns are properly screened, verified and curated before being put live on the platform. Global Sadaqah screened the projects to make sure that the project is the right one to donate to.

Impact tracking will allow donors, like you, to have their own personal dashboard on the website with updates on the social impact. Donors can keep track of their donations and how their money is being utilised through regular updates.

The Global Sadaqah donation platform is open to everyone, Muslims or non-Muslims, individuals or corporates.

Fight Avoidable Blindness

With their recent alliance with IDB, Global Sadaqah is currently working on a huge charity project for Alliance to Fight Avoidable Blindness (AFAB) which involves helping people in 12 African countries to gain back their sight and prevent further occurrence of curable blindness.

The cause intends to screen 1 million children in Africa and provide spectacles to those in need. Not only that, the aim is to also perform 100,000 cataract surgeries with at least 80% success rate. In another words, aiming for 80,000 successful surgeries out of the 100,000. This campaign also includes building six glaucoma treatment centres in six different countries, to establish four national programmes on uncorrected refractive error, to train at least 90 eye-care specialists, to provide up to 40 scholarships for medical doctors in ophthalmology and many more.

Muslims give a lot in charity, and yet Muslims are still in great need.

But collectively, we can change this. Join Global Sadaqah today and be part of the ever growing donation platform. Let’s make the world a better place together and help those in need.
