Housing Appeals

Kashmir is a region of the world, where several factors, such as conflict, floods and general political instability, have had a huge impact on the living conditions of the Kashmiri population and the development of the area. This has left an estimated 3.9 million people without adequate and appropriate homes, and many more without basic appropriate sanitation (6.4 million people). 

Housing is a pivotal need to address, ensuring that a household maintains itself outside a condition of multidimensional poverty, but unfortunately it is one of the most difficult dimensions of poverty to fulfill. 

In Kashmir, even the simplest home repairs and additions can cost a family years of saving and sacrifices, but they can also quickly get destroyed. The whole territory of Kashmir is subject to violent floods, earthquakes and wildfires that can easily destroy whole villages and portions of more urbanised areas. The risk for destruction is even higher in rural areas, where the lack of expertise and difficulties connected with sourcing appropriate building materials render shelters even more susceptible. 

That’s why we provide housing support for families from poorer backgrounds, ensuring that issues, such as overcrowding and poor living conditions, are addressed and improved. HWT work with these families to ensure they have adequate living arrangements.

For £5,000, you can build a home that will last a family a lifetime, saving them from having to worry about rent or becoming homeless.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Hope Welfare Trust 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 Hope Welfare Trust 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 Hope Welfare Trust 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.
