Mosque Bombing Disaster, Afghanistan – An Update:
Latest reports put the death toll from Aashoora bomb blast at Abul Fazl Mosque in Kabul at 84 with over 117 critical still in local hospitals.  CAI has already begun distributing food aid to those families with earning members who were martyred or are injured in hospitals; this aid will continue three months insha’Allah or until funds deplete.  CAI is also (trying to) assist those very severely injured and cannot be treated locally go either Pakistan or Iran for treatment insha’Allah.

Shoes For Shoeless Children – Africa:
I was fortunate to visit 5 centers run by BBMK centers in Kenya recently.  These are developing centers for new converts to Shia Islam and also educates poor children for pre-primary.  CAI is supporting the renovation of one depilated school and juggling for funds for another.  Startling, alarming, however are bare foot children with dirty, torn feet in all the centers.  This condition invite diseases, the most common being hookworm; not acceptable.  It is not a hopeless situation though, easily rectified.  An open durable, washable plastic sandal costs around US$3.  We have 15 centers with 2,693 children each so our investment is about US$8,079.  Please consider granting a poor child a sandal, will you please?  Please click here for some photos of my visit.
