|CAI 16th Annual Ramadhan Iftaar Appeal:
“Indeed those who recite the Book of Allah and maintain the prayer and spend out of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, expecting a commerce that will never go bankrupt”.
Sadly, we have almost lost hope reaching our goal, seriously thinking of reducing the amount of food to distribute or cutting back on number of people we can help. Please help if you can.
|Floods in Pakistan – A Catasrophe:
CAI is working with Husseini Foundation of Pakistan help with this terrible calamity and have advanced USD10,000 for purchase of food and other emergency supplies. Please lend a hand if you can as the situation is very desperate.
|Disaster in Leh, India:
We have a new disaster and tragedy developing in Leh, India where latest reports talk of over 500 dead, many more homeless and property destroyed, 2 Imambargahs included. I am waiting for the airport to reopen and will, insha’Allah fly there to access the situation and offer possible assistance. I realize I am stretching you donors, with Ramadhan iftaar, Pakistan floods, blanket drive and now this tragedy. Do we have a choice? We must try and assist however, whatever we can – all for the pleasure of Allah SWT. Please help if you can.
|Appeal for Blankets for Coming Winter:
CAI tries to provide warmth to the homeless and destitute in Afghanistan every winter. Afghan winters are usually very extreme and death through exposure among the young and feeble is not uncommon. We try to help communities that are very remote, where help does not usually reach and we help those that we could not in prior years. A USD16 investment from you will provide a nice, thick, warm, life saving blanket for 2. We are trying to reach about 3,200 families this year, insha’Allah so we look to raise USD51,200 before September. The earlier we purchase them, the cheaper the cost, lead time and logistics for the blankets to make it from China before winter begins in earnest November.
CAI therefore looks to all of us to invest in this very worthy and life saving investment for those that are most vulnerable and destitute. Please invest in a blanket or two or more; the returns will be invaluable.
