Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Save The Mothers 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 Save The Mothers 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 Save The Mothers 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.

Donation Total: £50.00


More than 200 including 61 children and 36 women have been killed and more than 1,400 have been injured and the numbers are rising daily in Gaza, Palestine. – Palestinian Ministry of Health-Gaza

The escalation in violence could not have come at a worse time as the Gaza Strip is already grappling with a weak healthcare system and a lack of medical resources.

Hundreds of sites in Gaza have been damaged or destroyed by Israeli airstrikes, including residential buildings, water and electricity infrastructure, and medical facilities.

The Hala Al Shawwa primary health centre has been destroyed, which provides COVID-19 testing and vaccinations. Israeli airstrikes targeted roads to two main hospitals in Gaza, restricting access for emergency services, as well as causing indirect damage to two other healthcare facilities.

The North Gaza Seawater Desalination Plant has halted operations due to damage and risk to staff, affecting the availability of water for over 250,000 people. Fuel supplies in Gaza are set to run out within days, endangering electricity supply to hospitals, homes, and other essential infrastructure.

The main electricity feeder to the region has also been damaged, affecting 65% of Gaza’s water and sanitation facilities.

In Gaza, there is an acute water crisis. Over 90% of households have a tap where clean water once flowed, but today the water is no longer safe to drink.

Gaza needs regular safe and clean water supplies urgently not only for the domestic needs of families but to run the health facilities too.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), more than 38,000 people are now displaced, with 2,500 made homeless by the destruction of their homes. PCRS warehouses, housing vital medical equipment, have also been damaged by Israeli attacks.

Save The Mothers Trust has established partners working right now on the ground in Gaza. Our partners on the ground are working tirelessly with hospitals for the provision of medical supplies and emergency aid.

In addition, emergency food packs are being distributed to needy families and vulnerable children, orphans, and families are being fully supported through regular sponsorship.

The Palestinians need you more than ever before.

Please donate generously and help us ease the difficulty of the Palestinians.

£50 – Emergency food pack
£100 – Emergency Medical Aid
£150 – Water tanker for 10 families for 1 month.
