You may remember a year ago this month we had a just giving page in order to collect enough for a Water Well in Pakistan. They said it takes around 9 months to complete. After waiting 11 months I finally get a response from them after not knowing anything about this despite me sending an email at the beginning, here is the response
I hope you are well.
I have looked into the donation and it seems that because of an administration error your funds were allocated to an emergency most needed fund.
This is why the donation was not flagged for me to instruct. Therefore the water well is yet to be built.
I apologise for this and assure you that we have been able to improve our donation and tracking systems in 2013 which should mean that this will not happen in the future.
I will instruct the well insha'Allah and you will receive your report in 6 months’ time insha'Allah.
I apologise again for the error and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I will be in touch upon completion of the well.
So there will be no picture here until another 6 months bi ihdnIllah
Alhamdulillah when it comes I will add the picture.
Alhamdulillah so far we have paid for 16 chickens, 6 fruit trees and 2 olive trees.
Jazakum'Allahu Khairan. I will post the pics of the certificates when they arrive Insha'Allah.
We are going to be raising small amounts of funds for different needs on this page.
From fruit trees to mosquito nets via Muslim hands Great Charity Gifts section.
Feel free to do them yourself or join us to make it possible for those on a low income to share it the rewards.
Here is the link for anyone wishing to do this independently http://muslimhands.org.uk/great-charity-gifts/browse/ or check this blog regularly to see which gift we will collect for at the time.
We will only be asking for £1-£2 each for each gift.
The first collection will be for 5 Fruit Trees.
Each tree cost just £20 so we need to raise £100 for all 5 Insha'Allah
If variety is the spice of life, then these fruit trees are no exception. Ranging from mangos and papayas to mulberries, planting a fruit tree provides communities with food appropriate to their local diet, brings environmental benefits and also provides income as surplus fruit can be sold.
Our next gift will be 20 chickens Insha'Allah. each gift contains 4 chickens at just £16 so we will collect enough for 5 gifts at the total cost of £80.
These domestic animals are one of the finest gifts you could give as they are low maintenance and each can lay over 200 eggs a year providing families with protein in their diet. Surplus eggs can be sold to pay for schooling, clothes and medicine.
I will ad more gifts along the way depending on how quickly we can provide for each gift.
So please feel free to buy your own gifts or join us with a £1 or £2 donation via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
They send out certificates once the gifts are paid for as you may have seen in a previous post so I will post the pictures for those as soon as possible.
Jazakum'Allahu Khairan for you support, may Allah accept all our efforts for His sake alone and All prais eis for Him.
These are the trees they provide for £20
And the chickens they provide too
“O you who believe! Spend of that with which We have provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zaalimoon (wrongdoers)”[al-Baqarah 2:254]
We were recently asked for a wheelchair for a Moroccan Grandma.
In just a few hours we had raised enough to buy one Subhan'Allah
Also some shopping essentials for another family in Morocco
