SCIAF works with some of the poorest people in the world. Last year we helped people with food, clean water, shelter and medicine in emergencies like the Syrian refugee crisis and the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
Last year we also helped over two million people to overcome hunger, poverty, war and disease. This included giving seeds, farm tools and training to families in countries like Malawi, Zambia and India so they can grow enough food to eat and earn money by selling any left over.
Legacies are so important. These thoughtful gifts send children to school, help parents to feed their families and give nursing care to the sick. They bring hope.
If you would like any further information on leaving a gift in your will to SCIAF please get in touch with David Mitchell, on 0141 354 5555, email [email protected] or visit our website www.sciaf.org.uk/wills
It's a simple process that means your values live on even after you have gone:

“We would see the bombs falling and the building on fire…We thought we’d be the next to die”. Abboud Irbrahim
When the war started in Syria, Abboud and his wife Shaha had to run from their home in the middle of the night with their young daughter. Shaha was pregnant with their second child.
They slept outdoors in the freezing cold for weeks and walked every day for a month to reach a safe place.
Their baby, Bayane, was born in a refugee camp where they’ve now been living for over three years.
With your support we’re helping families like Shaha’s to survive. We helped them waterproof their shelter and gave them thick winter blankets, a stove and coupons for food and fuel. We’re providing medical care so women like Shaha can have their babies in a safe place. We’ve helped many thousands of families. Your generosity can help thousands more of our Syrian brothers and sisters.
