|SOS Somalia – An Update:
Alhamd’Allah, I have recently returned from delivering 50 tons of your donated food grains and high protein biscuits to the hapless, desperate people all along the Somali / Kenya border area. Please click here and here to read / view photos of complete report.
CAI will spend remaining donated food fund balance towards nutritious biscuits for children and food grains for adults (about 10 tons) then cease the feeding program altogether. We want to focus on long term, sustainable projects that promote proper water use and conservation so that these people can start growing their own foods, insha’Allah.
Humble request to circulate this to those that may not see this update.
|Zakaat ul Fitr:
Remember, your zakat funds must either reach CAI or be pledged by August 28, 2011 for CAI to be able to distribute to eligible recipients on Eid day. Niyyat is very important; treat this as a loan to CAI, then change to zakat on Eid day, before salaat. Also very important you specify if sayyed.
|CAI Sponsors Higher Education In Kenya:
CAI, in partnership with BMMK has sponsored 10 poor but bright African students so they can complete higher education in Kenya at the cost of US$20,000. This is in line with CAI commitments in supporting educational opportunities to bright and outstanding poor and destitute students around the world.
|2011 Ramadhan Food Distribution – Afghanistan:
