2011 Ramadhan Iftaar Fund:
|Repeating our efforts of past 17 years, CAI will insha’Allah assist in providing poor families with Iftaar support this coming blessed month of Ramadhan. Our reach will include feeding programs for the poor and destitute in the following countries:
– 3,200 families @ US$28 per family unit
Total cost US$89,600
– 140 families @ US$21 per family unit
Total cost US$2,940
– 2,300 families @ US$21 per family unit
Total cost US$48,300
– 200 families @ US$23 per family unit
Total cost US$4,600
Total planned disbursement of about US$145,400 needs to be raised between now and Ramadhan 1 (August 1). CAI will forward contract with vendors on these food items at current prices to lock in savings, as prices will increase an average of 20% as we approach the holy month. Please, please give or pledge generously NOW so we can be prepared insha’Allah. I am certain we will all play our parts to make this Ramadhan a little easier for those who struggle to survive. May Allah (S) immensely bless you for your kindness and generosity.
|Sirsi Bahman School Classrooms Addition / Renovation Update:|
Happy to share progress of this major project, stated for completion early July 2011, insha’Allah. CAI donors have assisted in adding 14 badly needed classes, 3 laboratories, a library and a modern computer laboratory. This school serves about 2,000 very poor (mostly) Muslim children who now have unmatched local facilities that afford them a unique opportunity to beat ignorance AND poverty.
A proud project of CAI, her wonderful donors and well wishers!
