Haiti Earthquake Relief Update:
CAI has dispatched USD5,000 for Haiti victims of the earthquake through SHINE, a USA humanitarian agency that is distributing medicines and water in the name of Imam Hussein (A) without any administrative costs.  CAI will send more funds as and when more is collected.  Please consider helping this desperate situation if possible.

Zulfiqar Ali Naqvi:
Zulfiqar Ali Naqvi is a poor young man who got stuck in his career development due to lack of funding for college education.  Alhamd’Allah, CAI was able to help with a scholarship.  Zulfiqar recently graduated and was immediately hired by Neste India with enough compensation to lead a comfortable and honorable life.  More importantly, Zulfiqar will be able to be a resource for those seeking help as well.  Alhamd’Allah, one more success example for our donors effort.

Little Sakina Medical Update:
CAI is happy to advise success surgery for little Sakina who was born with Duck Feet Syndrome.  Her surgery was a success and Sakina will, insha’Allah, walk normally.  Her parents have requested I thank all donors who made the surgery possible.
