Cards for Uyghurs
Salaam Aleikum, we are so happy that you are here!
Ramadan is fast approaching, and you are probably already wondering about Iftar preps, setting goals, and for those who drink coffee switching to decaf. We have been pretty busy preparing too and we would like to bring something very important to your attention.
Have you heard about our Uyghur brothers and sisters in Xinjiang?
They are being kept in re- education camps where men are tortured, children are separated from parents, women are raped and slavery is enforced. A heartbreaking situation, which desperately needs our awareness and support.
We decided to invite amazing artists to join this project, to create unique designs which we proudly present to you in this collection of beautiful cards. By buying these cards you are supporting our brothers and sisters who have escaped the oppression in Xinjiang and have taken refuge in Turkey.
We guarantee that 100% of the profits will go to Ummah Welfare Trust, who will use all your donations to make sure that our Uyghur brothers and sisters will get the support they need.
For more information about this appeal please read the section below by the cards webshop.
Ummah Welfare Trust is a UK-based international relief and development charity established in 2001. Inspired by the Islamic teachings of empathy, generosity and selflessness, the trust aims to alleviate poverty and suffering across the world.
The rights of those who are neglected and oppressed are fulfilled by providing sustainable development solutions relating to shelter, education, health, and spiritual wellbeing.

May Allah reward you all for your interest in this special project.
I still can’t believe how history is repeating itself to our brothers and sisters in Xinjiang and was feeling helpless. That’s when I decided to gather Muslim artists and designers together and started ‘Cards for Uyghurs’. It’s amazing how they’ve all put their effort and talent in their designs which resulted in a vibrant mix of cards.
Make a difference this Ramadan, by not only helping our Uyghur brothers and sisters out, but also by expressing kind words to our loved ones, as I feel we can all use some positivity after this lockdown.
Hi I’m Asiye and welcome to my website! I’m a webdesigner and also a graphic designer in the Netherlands 🙂 I’m thankful that Denise from The.Botanical.Jungle came with this wonderful project and that I could help her to support our Uyghur brother and sisters! I pray that they will be save and life their lives as normal as anyone else.
