Ramadhan Iftaar Feeding Program – Goal Achieved:
The US$320,000 goal for 2019 Iftaar feeding program for the poor in 19 countries was met – alhamd’Allah. Approximately 10,000 plus poor families in some of the most remote and violence-stricken countries in the world got relief food packages, enabling them a decent iftaar every day.
A huge thank you to all donors, small and big who generously contributed to this very worthy investment. Allah bless.
CAI 50th Worldwide School – A Vision Within Grasp:
Alhamd’Allah, the 46th CAI donor-sponsored school is identified and funds for construction allocated this holy month. It will be in a very remote village of Somb, 7 hours from Dakar, Senegal. 500 very poor, almost all barefoot, trek to a rickety unstable outdoor school, sit for hours on the dirt floor under a blazing sun for a chance to write and read some words.
They will, in a few months insha’Allah, be sitting on desks in a modern classroom, and hopefully become better and productive humans to their beings, their families, their nations and the wider world. I get no better feeling of gratitude and joy that Allah has granted CAI this wonderful opportunity to serve mankind.
Here is the list of CAI funded schools since 2007:
