Food Aid To The Rohingya Refugees:

As you read this, I will insha’Allah be distributing rice to the Rohingya refugees at the Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh border area. This food aid is going to probably the most persecuted peoples in our world, fleeing the horrific violence against them. The Ledo camp at the border is where these refugees end up and out of desperation, resort to eating boiled grass seasoned with salt and chili peppers. Let us please help them – each family will get a 5-kilo bag of rice. Our budget is US$50,000 and we have raised about US$41,000. Donate at www.comfortaid.org/donate and choose the Aid to Refugees button. Allah bless.

Water Purifying Units For Haiti – Progress Report:

CAI Trustee Abbas Jaffer supervised the distribution of 450 water purifying kits to the families hard hit by Hurricane Matthew that brought about so much destruction to this badbakth country, spreading misery and pain of disease, especially cholera. These kits provide a family adequate potable and usage water per day for the next eighteen months minimum. The kits were donated in the memory of our beloved Imam Hussein (a). Sharing a few photos:
