Story

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

As-salaamu Alaykum

I have taken on a pledge to raise much needed emergency funds for the Global Emergency Winter Appeal with Human Appeal UK to help our brothers and sisters who are in desperate need in 8 different countries. I ask you to make dua and support me in this endeavour.

Please read the information about this campaign below:

In Gaza, 2 million Palestinians are bracing for their harshest winter yet. Winter in Lebanon is closing in on 1.5 million Syrian refugees. Extreme poverty in Bangladesh threatens 600,000 street children and Rohingya refugees. Winter in Syria will put 6.1 million people at risk. In Iraq, 100,000 people have just been evicted from their tents and are out in the cold. In Sudan, 1.1 million children face extreme hunger. In Somalia, 2.1 million are hungry. In Pakistan, 2 million face hunger and starvation.

This winter give the gift of warmth to the people of Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Lebanon. DON’T let them FREEZE, ACT NOW! As well we CANNOT forget our sisters from the Rohingya, in Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and the street children in Bangladesh need Medical, Water & Nutrition & Hygiene COVID-19 packs!

“Whoever removes a grief from a believer from amongst the sorrows of this life, Allah will remove a grief from him amongst the sorrows of the Day of Resurrection…Whoever covers a Muslim, Allah will cover him in this life and the Hereafter. Allah is in aid of the servant so long as the servants in aid of his brother.” (Muslim)
