CAI Newsletter – April 2017 – B

Ramadhan 2017 Iftaar Relief Fund Commences:

It is the month of Rajab, and as in the past 19 years, CAI is gearing up to feed the poor and destitute iftaar in the upcoming month of Ramadhan insha’Allah. Basic food grains like rice, wheat flour, pulses, tea, sugar, cooking oil and dates will be distributed in Afghanistan, 14 countries of Africa, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, and Yemen. Because Yemen in included into the list this year and due to the grave situation there, CAI is looking to raise US$320,000 for the iftaar this year.

This aid is possible only if we begin the logistics from now, since purchasing the food, transportation to remote areas and physical distribution before Ramadhan requires mammoth planning. Please help us accomplish this task, do not wait until the last minute to contribute. Food prices go up considerably as we near Ramadhan and it becomes a logistical nightmare to do justice to your dollars at the last moment.

Let us bring relief and happiness to the poor during this holy month for the pleasure of Allah. Please donate at www.comfortaid.org now or pledge. Allah bless.

CAI Grants Bus To Very Remote School In Kargil:

CAI will do anything possible to help a school in a poor area prosper. CAI donors constructed the Al Mahdi Public School in Kargil some 5 years ago. This school educates children from very remote and poor locations in Kargil. Since transportation to and from the school for the poor children is a huge challenge, especially in the harsh winters, CAI is assisting the school with grant/loan program for a school bus.
